South Australia; The Heart of Australian Wine
South Australia is internationally renowned for some of the most famous regions and celebrated estates, with some of the oldest vines in the country.
With production dating back to the early 1840s, our innovative and entrepreneurial wine producers combine old and new world technologies to create wine that truly honours the fruit.
South Australia produces almost 50% of Australia’s annual production and importantly more than 80% of the premium production.
Having survived the great phylloxera plagues that wiped out many interstate and international vines, we have some of the oldest surviving vineyards in the World.
At Cape Barren Wines we proudly participate in sustainable agriculture and the protection of our fragile environment, retaining our world-class grape growing status.
