Description

Amato Vino are small-batch artisan winemakers based in the Margaret River wine region, Western Australia.

 

The winemaking philosophy is ‘lo-fi’, in that we embrace wild-ferments, minimal adjustments in the winery, gentle handling. Wines are typically unfined and unfiltered. We are hands-on in terms of the grunt work, the care and guidance, but with a hands off approach to the science of winemaking, using little or no inputs and employing traditional processes. An old-school approach yet with a modern flare for creativity and adventure.

 

Established in 2003 by owner/winemaker Brad Wehr, the labels and wine styles have continued to grow, covering traditional Margaret River varietals through to some eclectic and unusual grape varieties and winemaking methods.

 

Our winery is located a few minutes south-west of the Margaret River township. We work with a core group of independent growers who share our philosophy, employing organic and sustainable farming practices.

 

Our wines

AMATO VINO ‘wilds’

 The ‘wilds’ are home to our emerging Mediterranean varieties, micro-batches, skinsy ferments and other eclectic wines. Featuring single vineyards, hand-picks, natural ferments – and incorporating minimal winemaking input and unconventional vessels for fermentation/maturation – this is the wild stuff.

 

Packaged under labels bearing in-house artworks/designs/photography the ‘wilds’ include Teroldego, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Primitivo, Marsanne, Trousseau, Savagnin.

 

AMATO VINO ‘mantra’

The ‘mantra’ series is all about the classic Margies grape varieties, albeit with the Amato Vino lo-fi twist. The emphasis is on vineyard site & fruit purity, working with small fruit parcels to bring out the best from the each site. Wild ferments (open and barrel), no adds, no fining and filtration are all central to the mix.

 

Wines include a Barrel-aged Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.

 

AMATO VINO ‘fusa’

‘Fusa’… the home for our blends (foo-za). Utilising emerging/alternative varieties as the basis for the blends we’re seeking to create juicy, fresh drinkability, yet complex and alluring wines – packed with flavour but oh-so light on their feet. The Bianco and Rosso are fruit-forward, fleshy and flavoursome versions of some of our favourite grape 

varieties and are made for short to mid-term drinking.

 

Private winery tours/tasting are available by appointment, please contact [email protected] for more info

Description

Stella Bella began in 1996 from a fusion of two of the region’s great wine minds, Stuart Pym and Janice McDonald.  With the aim to craft wines that would rival Australia’s best, in 1999 the first 200 cases of barrel-aged Semillon Sauvignon Blanc were highly successful and the winery has flourished ever since. These days winemaking is headed by Luke Joliffe, and viticulture by Steve Martin.

Stella Bella crafts wine under five labels from its four vineyards located throughout southern Margaret River. The south of the region is known for its longer, cooler ripening period, producing wines with higher natural acidity, delicate precision and femininity, reminiscent of a “cool climate” wine style.

The Wines
Stella Bella first shot to fame with its Suckfizzle, a Bordeaux-inspired Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blend. In addition to making Margaret River’s usual suspects, the winery pushes new frontiers with its sangiovese rosé, a small-batch pinot gris and sweet moscato. The wines are made in small batches enabling the winemakers enhance the best characteristics of each fruit parcel to make unique, quality wines.

Wine Tasting
Stella Bella operates from a charming little cellar door on Rosa Brook Road just minutes from Margaret River town. Our friendly and knowledgeable team welcome you to taste through our portfolio of wines, while learning about Stella Bella and the beautiful Margaret River Region. Visitors can also enjoy wine by the glass and BYO picnic options. Group tastings can be arranged in advance.

Dogs are welcome at the estate grounds but must be kept on a lead for their own safety.
