Swings & Roundabouts


Our team are well credentialed, serious winemaking chaps who have according to writer Ray Jordan won a staggering list of awards. But while stern faced about the wine itself, the rest is pretty relaxed. Margaret River is a cool and casual place to hang out so you'll find the personalities here very friendly and far from intimidating.


Swings & Roundabout's Chief Winemaker and one of Margaret River’s most well respected and talented in the industry — Brian Fletcher.

Brian studied oenology at Charles Sturt University and began his career in winemaking in 1980 in Australia. Brian is an extremely versatile winemaker with a multitude of awards to his name. He is one of Margaret River’s most acclaimed wine makers with over thirty five years of experience making wine all over the world.

He has held a number of prestigious winemaking positions including Production Director for Casa Vinicola Calatrasi in Sicily and Chief winemaker for Evans & Tate. Although he is a household name in Margaret River and a veteran winemaker for the region, he is somewhat of a quiet achiever and prefers to stay out of the limelight and in the vineyard with his beloved vines.
