Margaret River, Australia
See Ringbolt wines we sell
Ringbolt honors the pioneering spirit of the brave souls who settled Margaret River and who were the forefathers of the Margaret River wine region. The coast of Western Australia is the meeting place of the Southern and Indian Oceans and is littered with shipwrecks, including the shipwreck of the Ringbolt which wrecked in the late 1800s near the southern end of the Margaret River peninsula.
The wine industry in Margaret River took off in 1965 after Dr. John Gladstones released a report on the favorable conditions for growing wine grapes there. Peter Gambetta has had a long fascination with the region and its ability to produce world class Cabernet. He studied winemaking at Rosewrothy Agricultural College in the mid-1980s and in 1986 made his first wine in Margaret River. Peter has also done a vinetage in Bordeaux and made wine in the Coonawarra region of South Australia, and has well over twenty years experience working with Cabernet.
The Margaret River wine region enjoys a temperate, maritime climate providing wonderful conditions for the growing of distinctive Cabernet and has become recognized the world over as a premium wine growing region.
