Clairault began in 1976 when Ian and Ani Lewis bought 4 hectares and planted their first vines. Resilient and visionary, they worked their vineyard diligently — crafting their first vintage in 1980. For the next 19 years, they developed and expanded the Clairault property to over 68 hectares.

When the Lewises passed stewardship of the property on in 1999 to Bill Martin and his family, both the vineyards and the winemaking facilities received upgrades - including the introduction of low-intervention, biological farming practices and the addition of the Caves Road entrance with its spectacularly scenic drive to the winery. Shortly thereafter in 2002 John Streicker acquired the neighbouring Yallingup Protea Farm together with its vineyards, planted in 1996. By 2006 Streicker Wines released its first vintage.

In 2012, operations of Clairault and Streicker were combined and today, Clairault | Streicker Wines has over 300 hectares under vine, all managed with sustainability in mind and all accredited with Entwine. We have a family of wines that exemplify the viticultural style of Margaret River as well as our team's winemaking ideals.

We are proud to be represented both domestically and internationally at some of the world's finest restaurants and wine purveyors.

Our plans for the future start with a respect for the property's past. We continue to be committed to environmentally sustainable farming practices, and we intend to make the most of the vineyards' natural assets while capitalising on contemporary
winemaking technology and the esteemed skills of our winemakers.
