Cape Barren Wines first vintage was in 1999, and the philosophy has and always will be to source the very highest quality of grapes, from regions most suited to each variety, and then craft exceptional world class wines of outstanding value.
The reds are produced from the world renowned McLaren Vale region, from vines older than 45 years, and up to 120 years old. These seriously old vines produce wines of supreme concentration and complexity not seen in younger vines.
The whites are sourced from Adelaide Hills vineyards grown above 400 metres from sea level. Here the temperatures drop dramatically, especially at night, and the soils can be demanding and unforgiving, leading to smaller, more intensely flavoured fruit.
