The Credaro family first settled in Margaret River in 1922 as a pioneering family to the region, after migrating from Northern Italy. Initially involved in farming and the timber industry, small plots of vines were planted to provide the family with table wine.
Cesar Credaro was the first generation of the family to reside in the area of Margaret River and he worked in the one of the first vineyards in the region. Though it no longer exists today, it was a five acre vineyard that was established around 1915, near Commonage Road. He would work on this property whenever possible, between his farming and timber interests.
Cesar, with the help of the family took some cuttings from the Yallingup vineyard where he worked and planted an acre of the Italian Red Variety (Fragola) at Carbunup. The family would make a parcel of wine every year, for themselves and the neighbouring families. The Fragola has now evolved from site to site with each generation of the family over the years. This wine today is known as the Credaro Family Estate Fragola.
The family has been commercially involved in the wine industry since the 80’s, when their first plantings began supplying other established Margaret River wineries.
Today the family manages 120 hectares of vines in the sub-regions of Carbunup, Treeton, Yallingup and Wallcliffe. The Credaro family own three separate vineyards, with current plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and Merlot and two small plots of Fragola and Gewurztraminer.
The Credaro Winery is situated in Carbunup and was built in 2003. The Credaro Family Estate wines identify the best parcels of fruit from selected vineyards owned and managed by the family. Beach Head wines are designed to enjoy at any occasion, utilising a range of fruit from the vineyards at affordable prices.
