While others persist with the current, we are willing to do things differently. We create timeless styles that you gravitate towards year after year through trust and familiarity. And in the spirit of unpredictability and intrigue, we create fresh, new styles that have an undeniable allure. Whether you're out dining with friends, enjoying a glass at home or need something special to celebrate with - we make wines that complement your lifestyle. And because we know they taste great, you can be assured that our wines will reflect your great taste.
Our wines are made for you, not winemakers. We love to engage you with our ability to surprise and we want our wines to inspire your own story, your own moments. Because at Evans & Tate, we believe the possibilities are endless.
The winery has a growing international presence and can be found in 14 countries across the world. At home, Evans & Tate is the number one Margaret River producer by value (Nielsen MAT 2012) and is rated as a red five star winery in James Halliday's 2014 Wine Companion.Link to further Information
We are a proud family of winemakers - with a history which dates back over one hundred and thirty years. Our family ties go deep and we always stand together with an unconditional dedication and commitment that's seen us through thick and thin, good times and bad.
We're proud to note that no other Australian winemaker has achieved quite the accolades we have. Year after year we produce wines of such quality, depth and flavour that we've become a fundamental part of Australia's winemaking achievement and are today known as Australia's Most Awarded Winery.
Success like ours, however, does not come overnight. Rather it takes lifetimes of dedication, perseverance, inspiration, innovation and a passion to deliver the best.
The art of winemaking is as much in our blood as the desire to bring only the very best to market. We make wine to be enjoyed by all and we are proud that the fruits of our labour are there for all to savour.
For a real perspective on how strong our heritage of quality wines is, just ask any of the consumers in over 20 countries around the world who have enjoyed our wines since we began in 1877.

The Mount Pleasant range is one of the jewels within the McWilliam's brand. The McWilliam's Mount Pleasant winery is situated on the slopes of the Brokenback Range in the Hunter Valley. The Estate was established in 1921 by the legendary winemaker Maurice O'Shea who also coined the property's name - a name which would go on to grace his wine labels.
The McWilliam family's partnership with Mount Pleasant Estate dates back to 1932 when they purchased a half share of the winery. In 1941, the McWilliam family acquired full ownership of the winery. Holding a special talent for recognising the unique characteristics and longevity of Hunter Valley table wines, Chief Winemaker Maurice O'Shea was encouraged to stay on and pursue his creations. O'Shea brought sophisticated blending and oak treatment techniques to his winemaking and his unique and inspired wines drew praise for their intensity of flavour and significant longevity.Link to further Information
