Langhorne Creek has a wine history dating back to 1850. Traditionally a red wine growing district well known for its full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and red blends. With a surprisingly cool climate, the region also produces exceptionally flavoured white and fortified wines.
60km South-East of Adelaide
Defined by Mount Lofty Ranges to the West and North and Lake Alexandrina to the South. On average around 20-50 metres above sea level. Langhorne Creek’s fertile soils are predominantly deep, alluvial sandy loams that vary in colour from red-brown to dark grey, with patches of black, self-mulching clays. All soil types promote vine vigour, generous canopies and cropping levels.
The growing season climate is predominantly shaped by the onshore southerly winds blowing directly from the Southern Ocean across Lake Alexandrina.
