Margaret River’s world-class wine region is located in the South West of Western Australia.  Surrounded by ocean, the area is blessed with a maritime climate; wet winters and mild, dry summers.  Fine wines, abundant local gourmet food, pristine beaches and majestic forests combine to make the region a favourite tourist destination. Ancestral ties with the area date back to the first European settlement. Owner Richard Drake-Brockman is the great grandson of Grace Bussell, whose family first settled in the Margaret River region in 1830. Grace is famous for her courage as a 16 year old when in 1876, with aboriginal stockman Sam Isaacs, she rescued the survivors of the ‘Georgette’ shipwreck at Redgate Beach. Richard’s great grandfather Frederick Brockman, known for his exploration of the Kimberley, read about Grace’s feat in the newspaper and was so impressed he rode 300km on horseback to meet her! This romantic tale ended happily when they married in 1882. In a stroke of serendipity, Hamelin Bay’s vineyard and winery is fittingly located at the intersection of the Brockman and Bussell Highways, which were named in honour of these two pioneering families.
