An exciting wine region in Australia, Wrattonbully lies between two areas - Padthaway and Coonawarra - on the Limestone Coast of South Australia. The terra rossa-rich, rolling hill country of South Australia’s Naracoorte Ranges now plays home to nearly fifty grape growers and twenty wine producers, across a diverse range of both prominent Australian wine companies to boutique family-owned businesses.
This award-winning Australian wine region is certainly no longer one of the industry’s best-kept secrets, and there is a BIG reason why… it’s big, bold, delicious reds, specifically Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The unique characteristics of Wrattonbully fruit has gained worldwide attention and has also lent itself to creating great Chardonnay despite Wrattonbully predominantly being a red grape area.
Amongst the regions growing national and international accolades for wine making, the area is replete with incredible natural attractions including the world heritage listed Limestone Caves, the Naracoorte Caves. During vineyard development, many new caves were discovered, some containing significant ancient fossils and prehistoric remains. Take a short one and a half hour flight from Sydney, or make it part of a road trip, with a breezy four hour drive from Melbourne or Adelaide.
