Dr John Gladstones
The now-famous paper published by Dr John Gladstones in the 1960's identified Margaret River as a perfect place for premium wine, writing; “… I believe Margaret River will with time become one of the world’s great wine regions."
In conjunction with scientific research by Professor Harold Olmo from America, Dr Gladstone's findings have been proven by the capability of Margaret River’s soils and micro-climates to produce world-class wines. That it has come so far in less than 50 years is a tribute not only to natural advantage, but also very largely to the skill and dedication of the pioneering vignerons and winemakers. And with few of the wines yet to fully mature, surely the best is still to come.
