Adelaide Hills Vineyard_01.jpg

Situated east of Adelaide, the long and narrow Adelaide Hills wine region runs through the southern Mount Lofty Ranges. It is one of South Australia's largest and most diverse wine regions, stretching from the edge of the Barossa and Eden Valleys in the north, to the boundaries of McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek in the south.

The region is renowned for its variation in mesoclimates, with topography ranging from gently rolling hills to deep gullies with steep slopes. The majority of vineyards lie within an altitude of 400 - 700 metres with average rainfall 1,250mm.

A handful of varieties thrive and prosper in these diverse conditions, with grapes developing complex flavours, structured backbones and great persistence. Among the most prosperous varieties are Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Shiraz.
