Wine voices: Kate Morgan, Winemaker, Ipso Facto, Fraser Gallop

“There is so much going on in Margaret River right now, it’s really exciting. The original producers of the region are still making brilliant wines and they’re still evolving their style, still being creative. And then you have your up and coming producers, younger guys as well as some of the older guys doing their own thing as well and branching out. People playing with different styles, people playing with different varieties, there is so much going on in our region. We’re a very collaborative bunch and share ideas, taste and see what each other are doing. It’s just a brilliant time to be here.”
