The Adelaide Hills
The Adelaide Hills is one of the premier cool climate wine regions of Australia and is highly regarded for its production of premium, distinctive, elegant wines.
The Adelaide Hills wine region sits within the Mount Lofty Rangers, a short 35 minute drive East of the Capital City of South Australia, Adelaide.
The region forms a narrow band, approximately 30km wide and 70km long, positioned between the Barossa and Eden Valleys to the North extending to the McLaren Vale wine region in the South.
The Adelaide Hills is made up of a tapestry of vineyards, orchards, forests, dairy and alpaca farms. The region is strikingly beautiful and significantly cooler than the more traditional grape growing regions of South Australia.
Wet winters, followed by the cool spring and moderate, dry summer days, provides ripening conditions ideally suited to growing fruit for wines of elegance, that display an intensity of fruit concentration, flavour and natural minerality appreciated by wine lovers around the world.
Bordering McLaren Vale, the Lloyd Brothers Adelaide Hills Miegunyah Vineyard lies just South of Kuitpo Forest on the Range Road.
First planted in 1997, the property is 110 acres, with an even portion of vineyard to natural Australian bush scrub and grazing land.
Benefiting from the purest of underground water, rich fertile soils and undulating topography, the property has been specifically chosen for the varieties Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio and Shiraz.
The varieties have been planted ensuring their suitability to the specific microclimate found within the property. The fruit is grown to exacting standards, to be made into wine for the Lloyd Brothers Estate range.
