Our Story

Miles From Nowhere

Found in 2007, by veteran wine producers. Miles From Nowhere is a dedication to the Tate family's patriarch that arrived in Australia from the Ukraine over 100 years ago, and felt every bit Miles From Nowhere.

Franklin and Heather Tate - Founders

Have been working in the wine industry together since 1986, but Franklin had his start earlier, planting his parents first vines in 1973.

Their goal of Miles From Nowhere is for every glass to express their love and passion of the Margaret River region.

Frederique Perrin - Director of Winemaking

Prior to joining us, Frederique was the Technical Director at Cape Mentelle in Margaret River for the last five years. She has qualifications in Viticulture, Oenology and Wine Business in both France and Australia and has made wine for the last 22 years in France, Australia, the United States and Latin America.

Frederique’s philosophy

“My belief is that most wines are made to be shared and drunk. I don’t know any winegrower who creates wines as collectable only, even the rarest. Rather than objects of flavour dissection and complicated food pairings, I would like the wines I make to create occasions for passionate conversations, new friendships and sheer enjoyment. In addition, no great wine is made in the cellar, doctoring mediocre grapes. The devil is in the details of the viticulture and on that front, I am delighted to add my expertise to the Miles From Nowhere team.”
