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. Most wines are 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 Urban Cellar is open for Tastings & Sales every Wed/Thurs/Fri/Sat between 11am-4pm at the Margaret River Collaborative:
91 Bussell Highway, Margaret River – bottom of the main street near the Bakery and Clayhouse Gallery.
Our Winery is located a few minutes south-west of the Margaret River township, although it is not open to the general public. Tastings at the winery are by appointment only. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange. Typically, we offer a private tour and tasting from barrel, followed by a selection of current bottled releases.
Wines made by the Amato Vino team fall under two distinct labels, briefly explained here…
