Crafting Fine Wines Since 2006

Atticus Wines is a small, privately owned, boutique winery dedicated to crafting Fine Wines in the heart of Margaret River, Western Australia.

Ever thought about retiring your day job to live out your dreams?

Ron Fraser, Owner and Managing Director of Atticus Wines did just that. 

More than 20 years ago...

Ron Fraser, a wine retailer and lover of fine wines, set out to further explore his passion for exceptional wines while showcasing the beautiful region in which he lived, Margaret River, Western Australia. 

Margaret River was once a sleepy community of surfers and dairy farmers, however thanks to a group of trailblazing winemakers (many of whom had never made wine before!), the region built a global reputation for outstanding Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.

After a long search for the perfect location, Ron finally found a vineyard he believed would produce the premium-quality grapes he needed to support his vision. Planting commenced in the newly established Atticus Wines in 1997.

After selling fruit to the local wineries for the first five vintages, Ron knew the vines were mature enough to produce high-quality fruit. Along with his winemaker, he set out to craft the unique wines that he felt the vineyard was capable of producing.

Our Premium Range of Wines Speak for Themselves 

In 2006 the first Chapman Grove wines were released onto the market and a decade later, Ron’s ambitions were more than met.

Chapman Grove wines have been elevated to a 5 Red Star Rated Winery, and has take out the top prize at numerous award shows including three trophies and four gold medals at the prestigious Sydney Royal Wine Show in 2011 making it the Most Outstanding WA Producer at the show.
