Stories

There are about 300 of us scattered across the Hills.

Real people, working in small vineyards and artisanal wineries, hand making wines with personality and purity. 

There are 90 Adelaide Hills wine labels, 50 cellar doors and dozens and dozens of 
generous hearted food producers – from cheese wrights and pickle makers to growers and lamb producers.

We like sharing our wines and our food with people who feel the same passion for an authentic life, well lived.

Perfect Pinot
In a state known more for its traditional, warmer-region robust reds like shiraz and cabernet, Pinot Noir is the variety with a genuine affinity for cooler climate conditions.
One Sparkling Day
Renowned for the region’s cool climate wines such as its award-winning chardonnay and pinot noir, it’s only natural that these classic sparkling wine varieties, famous for their role in French Champagne, now have found their way into an exciting range of bubbly Hills beauties.
Cool New Shiraz
Most people will quickly pinpoint districts like The Barossa and McLaren Vale, which have established a certain reputation with their warm-climate wines, but the biggest trend in the past decade has been the shift to cooler climate styles of red wines like shiraz grown and crafted in The Adelaide Hills.
ALTR – A food and wine experiment
In May 2016 the winemakers of the Adelaide Hills created ALTR. An experiment in foraging, designed to open minds and alter perspectives of the Adelaide Hills’ rich food and wine culture.
Adelaide Hills Chardonnay is Number One, Two and Three
The Adelaide Hills is claiming the mantle as the home of “modern” Australian Chardonnay, following a recent hat trick by Bird in Hand Wines.
Crisper, Cleaner Gruner Veltliner
While it might sound like the sigh a Boer farmer makes when adjusting his hernia, Gruner Veltliner (pronounced ‘grooner velt leaner’) is actually a noble and highly sought after white wine.
Jimmy Watson Trophy for Hills Shiraz
Nothing puts a winemaker (and a wine region) on the Australian wine consumer's GPS quite like a Jimmy Watson win. And when it is a trifecta of firsts – for SC Pannell Wines, for the Adelaide Hills and for Adelaide Hills Shiraz then the moment is especially sweet.
Adelaide Hills Celebrates Best Vintage in a Decade
“The usual challenge we have in the Hills is summer or autumn rain which can cause problems at harvest, but this year it has been perfect. Warm days and cool nights and no rain means that we were finished by the end of March and the quality and yields are excellent."
