Beckett's Flat is a small family-owned winery situated in Australia's foremost and celebrated estate wine region - the Margaret River in Western Australia. The Margaret River appellation of Western Australia is surrounded on three sides by water - Geographe Bay to the North, the Indian Ocean to the West and the cool Southern Ocean (Antarctica, anyone?) to the South.
Western Australia's Margaret River is considered the wine region most like both Napa and Bordeaux in its climate and soil characteristics. The water surrounding this small wine growing region provides warmer nights, cooler days and higher humidity than inland areas. Fog caresses the vines, carried by sea breezes after warm days blessed with plenty of sunshine. The area's soil is developed from granite rock and contains lots of loam and, most significantly, gravel—perfect for hard-working vines which produce grapes of intense flavor.
