Events and competitions
Margaret River is celebrating 50 years in the making. The first vineyard Vasse Felix was planted in 1967 in response to a 1966 research paper by University of Western Australia agronomist, Dr John Gladstones who identified the region as possessing optimum growing conditions for viticulture.
The Margaret River Wine Association is organising events in Singapore, Sydney and Melbourne over the next month to celebrate this anniversary. We are very excited to be participating in these celebrations. To be in a tasting with the top producers in Margaret River is a treat. The tastings are ordered in terms of the year vines were first planted in each vineyard. And from the list we are one of the oldest with first plantings in 1978, 39 years ago. Isn’t that cool! Please come and join us.
The Sydney tasting is on Thursday 7th September, 6-9pm, Simmer on the Bay, Shore 2/3 Walsh Bay, Hickson Road, Dawes Point, 50+ wines plus canapes. Tickets here. Tickets are $65. Discount code for $15 off: UESYD.

We so wish we were still at the show… It really was great to meet so many lovely people and reconnect with our friends and supporters!
The weekend did get a little emotional and can I share why? So many of you came to our stand saying that you were drawn by our name and brand. You then shared why. Wonderful to hear your appreciation of our creations. And to top it all, you enjoyed the wines – yay!
You even spoilt us with coffee and ice cream. Thanks so much.
It was fantastic to be featured in the Margaret River & Cellaring Sessions in The Riedel Drinks Lab Presented by Nick Ryan.
Hope you have all recovered from the event, hope it will take us a while so that we can continue to relish in it. Thank you all again.

Food. Wine. Music. Friends. The harmonious combination of the four, come alive at the Sunset Wine Event happening this 18th & 19th February at Scarborough Beach, Perth.
It is with great pleasure to announce that UMAMU will be taking part to share with you our beautifully crafted wines. A special treat will be in store for those who come as we will be debuting our award winning, 2010 babies - UMAMU Sauvignon Blanc Semillon & UMAMU Mac’s Chardonnay.
“A prime example of the way the best of these blends - even where Sauvignon Blanc is the dominant partner - can age with intense grace.” - James Halliday
Rated with a high score of 94 points by none other than the highly acclaimed James Halliday; our Sauvignon Blanc Semillon comes beautifully coloured with tones of pale straw and light green hues. The Sauvignon Blanc Semillon gives a refreshing herbaceous and citrus aromas with every whiff and the lovely balanced mouthful will leave you wanting more.
Mac’s Chardonnay on the other hand is unlike the rest of the Chardonnays produced by UMAMU. This luscious bottle is especially unique and is close to our hearts. It is named after UMAMU’s patriarch, Mac in celebration and appreciation of his journey and love for Chardonnay which led him to Margaret River, over 30 years ago. We debut this wine in the same month as Mac’s birthday with much love.
“The bouquet is good but does not prepare you for the intensity and purity of the palate, where white flesh stone fruit and grapefruit draw saliva from every corner of the mouth.” - James Halliday
Each bottle of this lovely Chardonnay contains grapes which have been hand picked in the early mornings of late February. Whole bunched pressed and 100% barrel fermented with a combination of new and old French oak, Mac’s Chardonnay elegantly dances around the palate with its rich and succulent fruit flavours and nutty creamy texture. Just like any ending of a great performance, Mac’s Chardonnay ends smoothly with a buttery lingering finish.
Come, enjoy and experience the fun with us at Booth #18, where you will be able to participate in our exquisite tastings and be one of the first to bring home our latest award-winning wines. If you’re hesitant on purchasing and having to carry our elegant bottles of vino, fret not, as complimentary wine lockers are available throughout the day with every purchase made, leaving you with free hands for more glasses of wine to enjoy.Happening on the 18th and 19th of February, tickets for the Sunset Wine event can be pre-purchased for $28 from Eventbrite or at the gate for $33. Beginning at 2.30pm to 7.30pm both days, we will be joined by many fellow winemakers, brewers, restaurants, and musicians from across Australia.
We look forward to sharing this wonderful experience with you, so don’t miss out!
