We love the Margaret River region; sometimes dusty, sometimes lush, but beautifully isolated, it allows us to focus on crafting wines that capture the soul of the ‘terroirs’ and the varietals that come alive here.
Our name Miles from Nowhere not only alludes to the geographic remoteness of the vineyard, but also in recognition of our forebears who arrived in Australia some 100 years ago from the Ukraine, bewildered by what they were confronted with in their new home country, and feeling every bit Miles from Nowhere.
Franklin & Heather Tate turned their attention to their favourite vineyard in 2001. Eager to capture the unique and truly special terroir of Margaret River, they were convinced that their Miamup Vineyard was the perfect place to make it happen.
They say you never get a second chance to do something you love but Miles from Nowhere is just that – a renaissance of exciting wines from Heather and Franklin’s premium vineyards.
