The producer –
As treacherous as it is beautiful, Western Australia’s rugged southwest coastline is littered with shipwrecks the wreck of the Ringbolt being one of them. Sunk in the late 1800s in what is now known as Ringbolt Bay, located on the southern tip of the Margaret River wine region, adjacent to Cape Leeuwin.
Around 1920, the WA and UK governments established a Group Settlement Scheme for people seeking a new and better life in unchartered lands in Western Australia. Faced with the prospect of living in extremely tough conditions, most of the settlers despaired and moved away, but a few remained and were the forefathers of the Margaret River wine region planting the first vines in the 19th century and developed in 1965 by Dr John Gladstone whose report on the suitablility of Western Australia for vine growing persuaded more vineyards to be established.
Margaret River region enjoys a temperate, maritime climate with high winter rainfall and sea breezes to cool the precious fruit wonderful conditions for growing superior Cabernet Sauvignon.
