Langhorne Creek has been a wine growing region since 1860 and in recent times has attracted a number of Australia’s larger winemakers.
Most rain falls during winter and spring, with established wineries using an irrigation system to divert the Bremer River and deliberately flood the land in late winter. The newer vineyards also use conventional drip irrigation.
The main wine styles produced include Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, which are also commonly used as blends.
