A five star rating in James Halliday’s definitive Australian Wine Companion since 2012 ranks Flametree Wines in the top 5% of all of Australia’s wineries.

Flametree Wines is located on the picturesque shores of Geographe Bay, half way between Busselton and Dunsborough, at the gateway to one of the world’s great wine producing regions – the Margaret River Wine Region.

The Flametree is an Australian native tree that provides a spectacular display of flowers. However, it only blooms if the conditions affecting climate, soil, frost, wind and place of planting are in harmony.  Perfume, structure and elegance are the three essential elements to produce beautifully crafted and distinct wines. These are represented by the three leaves in the Flametree logo.

By winning Australia’s most well-known and respected wine accolade, the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy (Australia’s most prestigious wine award), with their first ever red wine, Flametree Wines quickly captured the attention of wine media, trade and consumers.

Cliff Royle is Flametree’s General Manager and Chief Winemaker, and skilfully supported by Winery Manager and Winemaker Julian Scott.

Cliff has been making world class wines in the Margaret River region for many years and comes to Flametree Wines after twelve years as Chief Winemaker at Voyager Estate.  Amongst a number of impressive accolades, Cliff was awarded Winemaker of the Year by Winestate Magazine in 2003, was a finalist in the Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine Winemaker of the Year in 2005 and has been a senior judge at the Royal Melbourne Wine Show and Perth Royal Wine Awards over a number of years.  Langton’s Master of Wine, Andrew Caillard, said “Winemaker Cliff Royle is regarded by critics as one of the most gifted winemakers of his generation.”

Julian’s strong background in chemistry, with an emphasis on winery research into techniques and styles, led to positions as Winemaker at both Stella Bella and Hamelin Bay Wines.  Over the years Julian has gained exposure to a variety of winemaking philosophies by completing several vintages in the United States, South Africa, France and Spain.
