Vanya Cullen is a woman of superlatives. Best….most….highest achieving… if there’s an award to win, she’ll have it covered. Vanya recently collected the Halliday ‘Winemaker of the Year’ Award and won the Australian Woman in Wine ‘Winemaker of the Year’ Award 2019.
Sitting down with Vanya – I’m struck by a couple of other qualities. Her passion for family and community. At the time of interview, Vanya has just launched the 2018 Kevin John – a homage to her late father, and the 2018 Diana Madeline – to her 97 year old Mum! Both wines come from 1970s plantings at Cullen.
Vanya’s local knowledge goes back generations, so it was a pleasure to discover her favourite places and top tips.
