Description

Hamelin Bay Wines was established by the Drake-Brockman family in 1992. The family-run vineyard features a restaurant and cellar door and is built upon a unique family history in the region.

A Serendipitous Tale
Owner Richard Drake-Brockman is the great grandson of regional pioneer Grace Bussell, whose family first settled in the Margaret River region in 1830. Grace is famous for her courage as a 16-year-old when, with aboriginal stockman Sam Isaacs, she rescued the survivors of the ‘Georgette’ shipwreck at Redgate Beach. Her husband, Frederick Brockman is known for his exploration of the Kimberley. He read about Grace’s feat in the newspaper and was so impressed, he rode 300km on horseback to meet her. This romantic tale ended happily when they married in 1882.

In a stroke of serendipity, Hamelin Bay’s vineyard and winery is located at the intersection of the Brockman and Bussell Highways, which were named in honour of these two pioneering families.

The Wines
The unique Five Ashes vineyard is one of Margaret River’s most picturesque vineyards. The moderate maritime climate and a north facing ridge of prime gravely loam soils are ideal for premium quality grape growing.  The white wines exude freshness and elegance, and the red wines have restrained power and depth. Since first vintage in 1996, Hamelin Bay has been awarded more than 10 major wine show trophies and numerous gold, silver and bronze medals.

Wine Tasting
The cellar door sits on a peaceful valley slope overlooking the vines, an idyllic lake and rolling hills surrounded by Marri forest. Follow a magnificent granite entry through to the contemporary tasting space daily, from 10am to 4.45pm for wine tasting.

The Food
The Restaurant is offers sweeping views over the Five Ashes vineyard and the Rushy Creek valley below, with a background of tall Marri and Karri trees. Open for lunch and dinner the menus incorporate fresh, local seasonal ingredients in a laid-back and generous country style. Save room from for the house-made ice-cream sandwiches, which take a local twist on a classic Australian favourite treat.
