  • About

Padthaway, a significant, moderately cool, primarily grape-growing (rather than winemaking) region in the limestone coast zone in the south east of south australia. While all the mainstream varieties are grown, and while grape quality is, as elsewhere, sensitive to yield, Shiraz is a regional speciality, and can produce long-lived wine of high quality. It has just nine producers.
