Amato Vino (formerly Wine by Brad) is a fresh and funky wine producer from the Margaret River wine region of Western Australia, specialising in small batch wines.

In 2003 a couple of influential winemakers and shadowy ruffians decided there was some fun to be had by putting together some pretty neat parcels of fruit from the region, creating their own label, releasing it with minimal fuss, and then remaining anonymous until the dust settles.

As best as possible these wines are made to convey Margaret River regionality: a true expression of the varieties and the styles that say Margaret River. Above all they think these wines provide excellent drinkability for your money in an increasingly crowded world of wine.

Local guy Brad Wehr is the CEB (Chief Executive Brad). He has been involved in the wine industry in Margaret River since 1989 when he jumped the fence at the annual Leeuwin Estate concert to catch a blinding Ray Charles performance.

With a CV that includes some of the legends of Margaret River wine (Leeuwin Estate, Xanadu) he was a natural to deal with the day-to-day driving of the brad bus. And he was the only guy called Brad that wanted the job.

The Mantra label consists of wines made from small fruit parcels from independent growers, some single vineyard selections, and classic Margies wine styles. The emphasis here is on site and purity, with minimal inputs or adjustments in the winery. Wild ferments, barrel ferments, little or no fining and filtration are part of the deal. Wines include sauvignon blanc, chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon.

Amato Vino are also the exclusive importers in Australia for the iconic winemakers Bonny Doon Vineyard, as well as a side project from the Doon team known as Birichino Wines.
