What do you love most about your re­gion? We source fruit from a num­ber of wine re­gions – pri­mar­ily Clare Val­ley, but also the River­land, McLaren Vale and Barossa – and they all have a great abil­ity to grow grapes that make great wine eas­ily. The soils are ge­o­log­i­cally old, so not rich, and they are freedrain­ing in the sum­mer and au­tumn days, which, to­gether with the dry air, make for in­tense, rich and bal­anced wines. It is hard to find bad food or bad wine in South Aus­tralia!

What should we make time for at your cel­lar door this sum­mer? We were one of the first winer­ies to set up a cel­lar door in the Ade­laide CBD, so come and visit to try our wines, along with the wines of our friends, per­haps paired with a cheese plat­ter. You could even try a spicy ver­mentino to­gether with aged goat’s cheese, salt-bush leaves and green ants. Yes, green ants – they are very good!
