Chapman Grove are dedicated to crafting fine wines from the Margaret River region of Western Australia
As a wine retailer and lover of fine wines, Ron Fraser recognised many years ago the potential of the Margaret River region to produce great wine. He decided in 1987 that this was where he wanted to make world-class wine and build a wine company which would be recognised as one of the major producers in the Margaret River region creating exceptional wines. After a long search for the perfect location, Ron finally found a vineyard that he believed would produce the premium quality grapes he needed to support his vision and planting commenced in the newly established Chapman Grove Vineyard in 1997.
After selling fruit to the local wineries for the first five vintages, Ron felt that the vines were mature enough to start to produce high quality fruit. With Winemaker Bruce Dukes, he set out to craft the unique wines that he felt the vineyard was capable of producing. In 2006 the first Chapman Grove wines were released onto the market. Over a decade later it is clear that Ron’s ambitions have been more than met. After gaining entry into James Halliday’s Wine Companion in 2009, in three short years Chapman Grove has now been elevated to a 5 Red Star Rated Winery, and has won numerous awards at wine shows including most recently 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.
The Chapman Grove Wines philosophy is to strive to produce the best possible fruit from which to create world-class wines. Varieties best suited to the Margaret River climate are grown, and French oak is used to bring out the flavour of the terroir producing a true expression of the region.
With award-winning wines across multiple price points under the three Chapman Grove labels: Atticus, Chapman Grove and Dreaming Dog, Chapman Grove offers a wide variety and great opportunity for the consumer to taste the best that Margaret River has to offer.
Crafting outstanding wines from quality estate grown fruit from the Margaret River region, the Atticus range strives to achieve the best the Margaret River terroir can offer. Atticus wines focus on the classic varieties of Cabernet, Shiraz, Chardonnay and also Bordeaux-styled, barrel-aged Sauvignon Blanc Semillon. The Atticus wines are small in volume but great in stature, and are only produced when the fruit harvested is of the highest quality. Ron Fraser named the super-premium range Atticus after his wife pointed out that he shared his philosophy on life with the crusading lawyer Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird, Just because things have always been done a certain way doesn’t mean they can’t be done differently.
The Chapman Grove range of wines are estate grown at the Chapman Grove Vineyard and are produced in Margaret River. They are designed to be approachable, unpretentious and distinctive. These wines are made with life, food and friends in mind. They are expressions of the variety and are ready to drink now or cellar and enjoy later.
