Established in 2003 by owner and winemaker Brad Wehr, Amato Vino embraces a minimal intervention winemaking philosophy, focused on ancient techniques, natural processes, gentle fruit handling, wild-ferments and minimal science. This old-school approach permits an exciting range of creativity within the estate's eclectic variety of wines produced from impressive fruit parcels in Margaret River and the Riverland region of South-Eastern Australia.
The three brands within Wehr's portfolio are Wine by Brad, Mantra and Amato Vino, encompassing lesser-seen varieties like Nero d'Avola, Fiano, Bela, Montepulciano, Nebbiolo, Teroldego, Carignano, Graciano, Tannat, Tempranillo and Trosseau, alongside regional favourits; Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.
