A Serendipitous Tale
Owner Richard Drake-Brockman is the great grandson of regional pioneer Grace Bussell, whose family first settled in the Margaret River region in 1830. Grace is famous for her courage as a 16-year-old when, with aboriginal stockman Sam Isaacs, she rescued the survivors of the Georgette shipwreck at Redgate Beach. Her husband, Frederick Brockman is known for his exploration of the Kimberley. He read about Graces feat in the newspaper and was so impressed, he rode 300km on horseback to meet her. This romantic tale ended happily when they married in 1882.
In a stroke of serendipity, Hamelin Bays vineyard and winery is located at the intersection of the Brockman and Bussell Highways, which were named in honour of these two pioneering families.
The unique Five Ashes vineyard is one of Margaret Rivers most picturesque vineyards.
