John Evans and John Tate started planting vines in Wilyabrup, in the heart of Margaret River, in 1974. They named the vineyard Redbrook, after Tate's beloved Daschund.

The Wilyabrup region is renowned for being the source of some of Australia’s best Cabernet Sauvignons and our Redbrook vineyard is no exception. The vineyard is home to some of the oldest vines in Margaret River and the Evans & Tate wines take inspiration from this historic parcel of land.
