Founder and owner of Redgate, the late Bill Ullinger, chose the name not simply because of the nearby eponymous beach, but also because – so it is said – a local farmer (with a prominent red gate at his property) had run an illegal spirit still 100 or so years ago, and its patrons would come to the property and ask whether there was any ‘red gate’ available. True or not, Redgate was one of the early movers in the region, and now has close to 20ha of mature estate plantings (the majority to sauvignon blanc, semillon, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, shiraz and chardonnay, with smaller plantings of chenin blanc and merlot). -JAMES HALLIDAY
We are a small boutique style winery, based on the undulating hills near Redgate Beach.
Established in 1977 by the Ullinger Family, Redgate Wines was one of the first established vineyards in the Margaret River area.
Redgate Wines has preserved the tradition of the family owned and run vineyard producing handcrafted premium wine.
Fruit is harvested on both technical analysis and flavour in the vineyard and the use of premium oak ensures our passion for producing excellent well structured handcrafted wines.
The wine expresses itself through strong elegant reds and rich fruit flavoured whites.
With a wide range of wines as well as dessert wines, a visit to Redgate has something for everyone.
