Finniss River Vineyard, SA 2/13 Cadell St, Goolwa SA 5214
Our family owned vineyard is located 75kms south of Adelaide, in the cool maritime climate of South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula, known as the Currency Creek wine region. The first vines were planted in 1999, and includes Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.Over the years to combat South Australia’s dry summer periods, major infrastructure works have taken place to help drought proof the vineyard, and provide a system of underground irrigation. With the cooler maritime climate providing perfect growing conditions, coupled with the abundance of water, and our philosophy of small batch production, our vineyard produces consistently high quality wines that display bold fruit and characterise the terroir of the vineyard. Our passion for wine was sparked by our parents long ago, and in early 2014, the perfect opportunity arose for us to follow their combined passion, and we took the plunge and bought the Finniss River Vineyard.
