Scarpantoni pride themselves on making wine from fruit grown to their own vineyards. The sites are scattered around McLaren Vale, all enjoy their own soil profiles, aspects and exposure, factors which influence the grapes, ultimately defining the character of the finished wines. Scarpantoni's vineyards were planted by the family themselves, except for one. Block 3 was established in the 1940s, now source to a pure, single vineyard wine. Block 3 runs along the right hand side of the Scarpantoni wineworks, on a patch of sandy soil which retains moisture at lower depths, ensuring natural nourishment for the deep rooted vines throughout the most severe of droughts. It yields a harvest of the most remarkable quality Shiraz.

After a year in barrel, the rigorous task of assemblage is undertaken over the course of several weeks, more than twenty different parcels are assessed to determine the final School Block.

Domenico Scarpantoni immigrated to Australia in 1952, travelling and working around the country before settling in with Thomas Hardy and Sons at Tintara in the McLaren Vale

McLaren Vale is a picturesque country town approximately 45 km south of Adelaide, South Australia. With its vineyards sprawling over hundreds of undulating kilometres, it is the toast of South Australia's world-renowned Fleurieu Peninsular.

Scarpantoni

The town is bordered to the North, South and East by the ancient rolling Willunga Hills, while to the West lies the sparkling waters of the Gulf of St. Vincent.

With the sea being so close, less than 10km from the centre of town, the climate is quite moderate, almost Mediterranean.

Domenico soon discovered the region was ideal for viticulture and it was there in 1958 that he bought his first property of just 5.6 hectares.

Later he was to become vineyard manager for Seaview Wines of McLaren Vale and was responsible for the contoured vineyards that Seaview were renowned for in the 1960s. In 1968, the original school property of 20 hectares was purchased in the adjacent town of McLaren Flat.

In the years following, a further 12 hectares of adjoining land was purchased, making him one of the largest growers in the region at that time. In 1979, the winery was built with the aid of his wife Paula and two sons, Michael and Filippo, on the McLaren Flat property, with only a percentage of the tonnage harvest released onto the market under the Scarpantoni label.
