The Credaro family have been making wine in the Margaret River Region since great grandfather Cesare Credaro planted his first Fragola vines in 1922. Coming from Italy on a ticket sponsored by his brother Olympio, it was an act of kinship that brought him to Western Australia, where the family have been farming and raising families on ever since. Cesare purchased a parcel of land in Carbanup for 1000 Crowns, and with his broadaxe and a jersey cow, set about making a livelihood in the fertile soil and cool coastal climate the region is famous for.
Robert Credaro is Cesare’s grandson. From a youth playing cricket on Bussell Highway, and helping his father Albert tend the livestock and produce from an early age, Robert is now taking a small step back while still having a firm hand on the operations at large. Robert and wife Phyllis’ eldest son Matt is the face of the brand and works closely with brother Chris to oversee the vineyards and winemaking, driving the Credaro wine brand into the next century.
