We like to think of ourselves as a humble winery producing great things. Our family owned and operated business, crafts some of The Limestone Coast’s and Australia’s finest cool climate wines.

Finding the balance between the old and new - where timeless craftsmanship meets state of the art processing equipment - the original Stonehaven facility from which we now operate won international acclaim as Winery Of The World at the 2001 San Francisco wine awards. The Winery is surrounded by 36ha of vineyards on famous Padthaway Limestone. When only the best will do, we source fruit from the six flagship regions of The Limestone Coast, providing a wide range of varieties and the best grapes from each terroir.

As the gateway to the internationally acclaimed wine regions of South Australia, we invite you to see what goes on behind our cellar doors, meet our people, and of course sample what we are most proud of: our wine.
