Good Water, Great Wines
Located three hours-drive south east of Adelaide is Padthaway, part of the Limestone Coast Zone. With the first vines planted in 1964, the farming community of Padthaway has traditionally been home to large-scale grapegrowers. In recent years an increasing number of family-owned wineries have begun to make their mark.
Padthaway benefits from readily abundant water, with the region's near proximity to the coast (about 55 kilometres away as the crow flies) ensuring cool evening temperatures even when daytime temperatures soar.
Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay provide the bulk of the region’s harvest, with plantings of Merlot, Pinot Gris and Riesling also making some excellent wines.
