Krondorf’s story is one of love, faith and hope. Those were the three values held by the Silesian settlers who established the village of Krondorf in the Barossa Valley in 1847. The settlers left a lasting impression on the area’s architecture, farmlands and vineyards, and they pioneered a winemaking tradition that continues to this day.
Oakridge Wines have truly earned their position as being amongst the most respected and admired producers in the Australian wine industry. Pioneers of the upper Yarra Valley, Oakridge saw the potential for making great wine on the rich red volcanic soils of this unique sub-region. They were at the forefront of reviving the Yarra Valley as a wine area in the early 1980s, and today, they have grown to become an internationally recognised wine producer of award-winning wines. Holding an impressive accumulated tally of over 500 domestic and international trophies and medals, Oakridge is a shining light in cool-climate, minimal-intervention viticulture and winemaking.
Chapel Hill is named for the ironstone chapel built by McLaren Vale’s Methodist settlers in 1865. The chapel stood as the heart of the community for 100 years, before it was closed and began to fall into disrepair. In 1972, the chapel was given a new lease on life when it became the centrepiece and namesake of the Chapel Hill Winery.
Regarded as one of the founding fathers of Australian wine, the pioneering John Riddoch was perhaps the first to realise the rich potential of the Coonawarra region. It was 130 years ago that John Riddoch planted the region’s first vines and, in doing so, positioned himself firmly in Australian winemaking history. The award-winning collection that Riddoch Coonawarra Wines produce today, in his name, hail from the very same region.
