Myponga Wine District

The Myponga Wine District includes wineries, the Southern Fleuieu Wine Region in the area surrounding Myponga, Sellicks Beach, Sellicks Hill. This district is close to the coast and the proximity to the water merates the climate. The big, prominent hills of Sellicks Hill Range roll down towards Gulf St Vincent and the broad sandy beaches run north towards Adelaide. Sellicks Beach is one of the few beaches where parking is allowed on the sand and it's as popular with families for its safe swimming as it is with surf fishermen. There are good boat launching facilities and excellent windsurfing when off-shore winds prevail. For a bite to eat, the historic Victory Hotel has commanding views over the area and has been delighting travellers for years. Myponga is at the centre of rich grazing and dairy country, where herds of Friesian cows are often joined at dusk by mobs of Grey kangaroos. Much of the region's water comes from the nearby reservoir, on which the thriving local floriculture and specialist nurseries depend. Most of the wineries are located in the area between Sellicks Beach and Willunga Hill.

The Southern Fleurieu Wine Region includes five districts : Delamere ; Yankalilla ; Mount Compass ; Myponga ; Victor Harbor

Geoff Merrill Wines is situated at the historic Mount Hurtle Winery-dating back more than 100 years to 1897.

A large family of geese and ducks also inhabit the winery grounds and dam near the front entrance to the estate. Geoff Merrill’s winemaking philosophy is to produce wine that allows regional, varietal and vintage expression, without excessive winemaker intervention. Great wine is a matter of balance and his passion for subtle, elegant and harmonious flavours in wine is well documented. He believes that maturation, both in barrel and particularly in bottle, prior to release, plays an important role in achieving this aim.
