Evan's & Tate

Australia - Western Australia, New South Wales


West Australia’s Margaret River grape growing district probably has more in common with Bordeaux and parts of California than it does with the rest of Australia’s wine regions. In fact, way back in the 1960s, an academic report alluded to that very fact.

Evans & Tate has a unique place in Margaret River’s winemaking community.  Started in 1974 by John Evans & John Tate who found a piece of land on the banks of the Wilybrup River and planted grapes there.  The land appealed to them as it was on free draining gravely soils and had a maritime climate.  They named that first vineyard Redbrook, after Tate’s Daschund.  The wines quickly developed a following and other vineyard plantings followed, all with specific micro-climatic identities.  In 1983 John Tate and his wife Toni bought their partner out and continued to develop a reputation for quality wines.  Still family owned, but now in the safe hands of the McWilliams family, they now produce not only some of the best quality Margaret River wines, but also some of the best value Margaret River wines.

Winemaker Mathew Byrne joined the family owned team in 2001, and his influence on the wines has been immense.  With a winemaking background in Mildura, California and South Africa, and with judging duties at national and international wine shows, Mathew crafts some beautifully structured and elegant wines across a range of price points and is now, himself, one of Margaret River’s most awarded winemakers.  If you can’t find him in the vineyard, he is probably on or under the waves off the stunning Margaret River coast - surfing, fishing or diving.
