The story begins in 1974; when the wine industry in Margaret River was in start-up mode. John Evans and John Tate saw the potential of the region for producing first-class wines so planted a vineyard they named ‘Redbrook’. The two gentlemen were passionate about creating the best wines they could from their vineyard.
Over four decades later Margaret River ranks amongst the world’s elite wine growing regions. Redbrook is one of the oldest and most prestigious vineyards in Margaret River and is the centerpiece of our property. The passion displayed by our founders has endured and is a key reason why Evans & Tate is one of Australia’s favourite and most successful Margaret River wineries today.
Metricup Road runs through the heart of Margaret River and since 1974, the lush vineyards of Evans & Tate have lined their way along Metricup Road as you travel through the region.
