IMMERSE

THE ADELAIDE HILLS HAS A LONG DISTINGUISHED PROVENANCE OF FINE WINEMAKING.

PIONEERED IN THE 1840’S, AND RE-BORN IN THE 1970’S WHEN A WAVE OF YOUNG TERROIRISTS BEGAN EXPLORING THE HIGH ALTITUDES AND MYRIAD OF MICROCLIMATES IN THIS ANCIENT AND DIVERSE LANDSCAPE.


Absorb yourself in a century and a half of winemaking – from historic vineyards planted in the 1840s, to the visionary brands established by the modern pioneers of the 1980s and 1990s.

Start in the foothills at...

01 Penfolds Magill Estate, the spiritual birthplace of some of Australia’s most celebrated wines, including Grange.

02 Take a Pinot pilgrimage to Ashton Hills, a distinguished cool climate vineyard site and winery founded in 1982 by pioneer Stephen George.

03 Then get a helicopter view of Hills varieties and styles at Shaw + Smith, with a tutored wine flight experience.

04 Finally, drink in the views and hear the story about one of our founding fathers at Petaluma.
