About Atticus Wines
About Atticus Wines is a small, privately owned, boutique winery dedicated to crafting Fine Wines in the heart of Margaret River, Western Australia.
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.
L’Atelier by Aramis Vineyards was founded in 2012, dedicated to supplying a hand-selected range of quality wines to the independent on and off trade. From small beginnings we now operate across NSW, QLD, VIC and WA as well as in our home state of South Australia. Our distribution company was founded on our absolute belief that there was nobody better to represent our McLaren Vale brand than our own team. From that point our mission was clear - to bring together a collection of wine that would complement and match the quality of our own, and to present these to premium retail and hospitality trade across Australia. We believe in working collaboratively with carefully selected producers from Australia and beyond, each sharing the same passion and commitment to quality. Inspired by the Ateliers of 19th century Paris, we see ourselves as a meeting place for highly talented craftspeople at the top of their trade. Our portfolio consists of premium boutique wines from across Australia, New Zealand, Italy and Spain, all carefully selected to represent the very essence of their region, but most importantly at approachable price-points. We do not aim to build a trophy cabinet, we believe that you do not have to spend a fortune to drink like a king, and our selection reflects our ability to seek out wines that consistently over-deliver and represent the very best value.
