Planning a Classic night in

– George Stupart


Some days there seems to be more time devoted to talking and writing about wine than actually sitting down and enjoying the stuff. At Evans & Tate we pride ourselves on producing wines of integrity that capture the essence of the grape, the region and most importantly, the consumer. We also pride ourselves on having a range of wines that are regionally authentic, readily accessible and great value for money.

With this mission in mind, we have crafted the Margaret River Classic range for everyday people who love a glass of wine with everyday food.

Now that the hard works done, grab a glass, fill a plate and enjoy!
