Amato Vino Classic Fusions
Amato Vino is known for its mastery with exotic ‘emerging' grape varieties; however, they still know how to handle the classic blends of Margaret River. Familiar fusions of Sauvignon Blanc Semillon and Cabernet Merlot are given the Amato Vino twist, incorporating wild ferments, barrel fermentation, no additions, fining or filtration. But there is no mistaking the regional and varietal hallmarks that place these blends in classic Margaret River territory.

Amato Vino is a small-batch artisan winemaker based in the Margaret River wine region, Western Australia.
Employing a hands-on philosophy in terms of the grunt work, care and guidance, but with a hands-off approach to the science of winemaking, the wines are made using little or no inputs and traditional processes. An old-school approach yet with a modern flare for creativity and adventure.
Our wines are typically alternative varieties, micro-batches and ‘lo-fi’ winemaking styles. Single vineyards, handpicks, natural ferments; incorporating minimal winemaking input, little or no adds, and unconventional vessels for fermentation and maturation – the wild stuff.
The winemaking is ‘lo-fi’, in that we embrace wild-ferments, no/minimal adjustments in the winery, minimal handling, minimal machinery. We use mostly older oak so that there are no distractions to the fruit expression of the wines/varieties from the regions and vineyards they grow, and we also use some unconventional fermentation & maturation vessels, including clay amphorae.
We love exploring unusual and emerging grape varieties and being adventurous in winemaking styles. Volumes can range from 20 dozen of some wines (experiments/explorations!) up to 250 dozen – small by anyone’s standards.
The two growing areas: Margaret River, where the climate is cool-to-mild and alternative varieties are a rarity; and the Riverland (SA), where hot summers are the norm and the region is home to myriad extraordinary grape varieties grown on small plots dotted along the Murray River.
