The Ingoldby family
has been associated with McLaren Vale winemaking heritage for more than a hundred years
Since inaugural release Ingoldby have enjoyed a stunning run of success at national wine shows. It was in 1973 that Jim Ingoldby finally adorned the label of traditional McLaren Vale wines with the family name. From the outset Jim and his Ingoldby wines were unashamedly proud of their McLaren Vale heritage. The region is often referred to as the middle palate of the Australian wine industry. The Ingoldby's innate skill at managing vines and soils which they have husbanded for generations yields splendid fruit with concentrated flavours. Their fruit has been the secret ingredient in many of Australia's most cherished wines. Ingoldby's Cabernet is highly valued and still sought by some of the nation's most popular brands.
 Ingoldby

Ingoldby based its success on two classic red varieties that represent brilliantly the unique qualities of the McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. From 1986, the Ingoldby reds began a stunning run of success at the show level, and the Cabernet Sauvignon has been highly acclaimed to this day.

Ingoldby operates vineyards which have been in the family for generations, with additional fruit provided by long term contract growers. The wines exhibit rich fruit flavours that are enhanced by the judicious use of new and aged oak. Ingoldby has also established a range of white wines that impress McLaren Vale's traditional red wine enthusiasts.

It is always a special moment to have hard work recognised and for people to acknowledge that your wine stands out above all others in it's class. Ingoldby couldn't be prouder of their winemaking team. And once you have tried Ingoldby wines, we know you will want to share the secret with friends.

As McLaren Vale is best known for Cabernet and Shiraz, Ingoldby has been traditionally associated with its full flavoured reds. Ingoldby's flagship wine, the Golden Vine Reserve Shiraz has been the most widely acclaimed release within the Ingoldby repertoire.

With the the success of Ingoldby Chardonnay taking top Gold trophy at the Royal Queensland Wine Show, they have demonstrated their talents at producing a range of extremely high quality wines against traditional expectations that full flavoured reds are what the region does best. The outstanding fruit driven flavours of the 2004 Chardonnay wowed judges at the Bendigo Bank Royal Queensland Wine Show securing the highest accolade in its class winning Top Gold and 2 further trophies. Proudly crafted in the traditional McLaren Vale style, the 2004 possesses an intensely flavoured fruit palate derived from a long and dry vintage.

Owned and operated
by the Bowen family, Bowen Estate lies towards the southern end of the famous Coonawarra wine region
Proprietor/ winemakers Doug and Emma Bowen, graduated from Roseworthy College in 1971 and Charles Sturt University in 1996, respectively. Starting with bare paddocks that had until then been part of a dairy farm, the vineyard area was originally 12 hectares. Established in 1972 on prime Terra Rossa soil, the first vintage from Bowen Estate was 1975. The Cellar Door tasting and sales facility was opened to the public in 1977. The South Block, originally a sheep farm was purchased in 1986. In 1996 a property with some established vines, was purchased directly on their northern boundary.
 Bowen Estate

The property now consists of three blocks, South, Home and North and the total vineyard area is 34 hectares. Bowen Estate vineyard is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz with smaller plantings of Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. After several vintages of wine produced under the stars, a Mount Gambier limestone winery was built. The Honourable David Tonkin Premier of South Australia officially opened this building on 2nd November 1980.

In the vineyard at Bowen Estate, all vines are individually pruned by hand to ensure each vine produces maximum quality. Hand pruning enables the winemakers to restrict the crop size that results in wines that are full in body and have great depth of colour and longevity. The pruning and trellising of the vines is done with specific consideration being given to the growing habits of each variety of grapes in the vineyard.

This has allowed the production of a very open crop of grapes that is well ripened in the cool Coonawarra climate. Crop levels are restricted to approximately 6 tonnes per hectare for red varieties and 8.5 tonnes for Chardonnay. At this cropping level Doug Bowen feels maximum quality is ensured.

The grapes are harvested and crushed within an hour of picking. In the winery, the grapes are fermented at cool temperatures and after fermentation the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc are aged in French and Russian oak and Shiraz in American Oak barriques. Approximately one third new oak is used each year and after 22-24 months in wood the wine is bottled ready for release.

Much of the philosophy for the style of wine produced begins with the vineyard. Firstly, the location of is on the traditional prime terra rossa soil of Coonawarra. This is of the utmost importance. Secondly, there is a very strong belief in the traditional hand pruning of vines, combined with an arch cane trellis system. This improves the evenness of budburst, bunch exposure and ripeness, but more importantly, this method of pruning ensures a balanced vine. Therefore the vine will produce fruit of optimum quality. It is this optimum fruit that makes bench mark wines which reflect the true characteristics of Coonawarra - strong varietal aromas, big flavours and soft balanced tannins.

The Baileys wine-making
story began in the 1860’s, when Richard Bailey and his young family arrived in Australia
The Baileys set up a store in Glenrowan to supply miners on nearby goldfields. This store was located alongside the famous Anne Jones Inn where the Kelly gang siege was to take place. As the gold fields dried up and the miners moved on, the Bailey family turned to farming instead, settling their property near Glenrowan. Back then, rural life was tough and lonely, and the Glenrowan countryside was barren and unforgiving. But the Baileys family persevered on their property named “Bundarra”: eventually planting one of the district’s first vineyards.
 Baileys Glenrowan

In 1870, Richard and his son Varley proudly produced their first vintage. It was gold of a very different hue, but gold nevertheless, and the birth of an Australian legend! The Bailey property remained a winemaking success from then on: with the winemaking mantle passed on from father to son through the generations. During that time, the region was terrorised by the infamous bushranger Ned Kelly, who was finally captured in 1880 at Glenrowan - just a short gallop from Baileys.

Far more terrifying than Ned though, was the outbreak in 1890’s of Phylloxera. Whilst only tiny, the parasitic pest Phylloxera devastated Victoria’s early wine industry. Many vineyards were ordered to destroy their vines, and many heartbroken winemakers simply walked off their ravaged land, never to return. But once the Phylloxera scourge had passed, the Baileys family replanted in 1904 on Phylloxera resistant root-stock -- and soon the family’s famous red wine flowed again.

The original 1904 Block, planted with Shiraz, continues to produce outstanding wines to this day

The Baileys of Glenrowan Shiraz, full of flavour, quickly built a reputation and a loyal following. Further plantings of Shiraz, Muscat and Tokay took place in the 1920's. Recent improvements to the Baileys of Glenrowan site have ensured the success of the winery for generations to come. Plantings throughout the 1950’s to the 1990’s have seen the vineyards increase to 143 hectares, with an annual crush of 1600 -1800 tonnes.

The historic Glenrowan wine region is renowned for its luscious fortified wines and rich red wine styles, a product of the area's deep, red granite soils. The region is bordered by the Ovens River to the north and the Hume Freeway to the south. Most cellar doors and vineyards in the region are located close to the historic township of Glenrowan, on land that lies between the Warby Ranges and Lake Mokoan. The region's oldest vineyard is Baileys of Glenrowan. Tradition is important at Baileys, with many heritage buildings and historic artefacts on display - providing a real glimpse into Australia's colourful rural past. Apart from its intensely flavoured wines, the Glenrowan area also produces a range of stone fruit - such as juicy nectarines, peaches and cherries - plus deliciously sweet strawberries.

New, state-of-the art winemaking equipment was built at Baileys in 1998. At the same time, the 100 year-old basket press was restored to ensure that the tradition lives on in all of Bailey's wines. The restoration and upgrade of the winery cellar door in 2000 completed the recent improvements and enabled the sharing of heritage and the full Baileys experience with the winery's visitors.

Two Paddocks is
a small family wine producing business that is entirely dedicated to making great wine
Two Paddocks' three vineyards are located in Central Otago on the South Island of New Zealand. From this golden countryside, where old trails still wind through historic gold mines and ice blue lakes nestle below rugged mountains, comes some of the world's best Pinot Noir, a wine that will rival the great Pinot Noirs of Burgundy. It's the region's continental climate with its hot dry summers, cool autumns, and cold winters that provides the perfect environment to nurture the perfect grape. Add to that warm days and cool nights for colour and stability and the wine that results is nothing less than excellence.
 Two Paddocks

The winery started in 1993 with modest ambitions and initial plantings of five acres of Pinot Noir at the original little vineyard at Gibbston, Central Otago in the deep south of New Zealand. At the same time, winery friend Roger Donaldson planted the land next door, hence the name Two Paddocks. (Roger’s paddock proved to be a slow starter. His brand Sleeping Dogs, takes its name from the first film he and Two Paddocks winemaker Sam Neill made together.)

Sam wanted to produce a good Pinot Noir that would, at the very least, be enjoyed by family and friends. Admittedly, Sam's friends will pretty much drink anything, so this didn't seem too hard. The first vintage in 1997 was much better than hoped, in spite of a difficult growing season. 1998 was a more distinguished vintage, and in 1999 a world class Pinot was produced. Here was a wine of considerable complexity with an amazing nose, delicious fruit and a good lengthy finish.

Since that time with each successive vintage, Two Paddocks have produced a Pinot Noir that has done the winemakers proud and is to be frank, too good to be wasted on the close circle of friends. While Sam Neill and friends' generous thirst accounts for the occasional scarcity of Two Paddocks Pinot, the ambition has become to produce year after year, the world’s best Pinot Noir

Two Paddocks original vineyard has now been augmented by two other small, superbly sited vineyards in the Alexandra district. Alex Paddocks is a 7-acre vineyard on a very beautiful terrace above the Earnscleugh Valley, and sits under some very striking rocky headlands. Planted with Burgundian Pinot vines (5, 6, 115) in 1998, the Two Paddocks Last Chance Pinot Noir is from this single vineyard (first vintage 2002). The Last Chance name comes from an old gold miners watercourse that runs through the yard, dating from the 1860s.

In 2000 Redbank was aquired, a lovely-sheltered sixty acres also in the Earnscleugh Valley, which nestles between two dramatic rocky escarpments. More Burgundian clones have been planted here. As a departure, some Riesling here, and we grow medicinal and culinary herbs as well. We inherited a still at Redbank, which we use to distill a brilliant essential oil from the English and French lavenders we grow on the property.
