From the Earth

Founded in 1886 Angove Family Winemakers is one of Australia’s most successful wine businesses – a fifth generation family company with a tradition of excellence and an eye for the future. Our focus on sustainability in all aspect of our winery and vineyards, will ensure we are here for many generations to come. We are committed to private ownership and have confidence that remaining in family hands enables the company to be master of our own destiny and remain true to our stated organic and sustainability aims with a clear focus on building on over 125 years of winemaking excellence.

Soil

The making of great wines begins with the soil. Soil sustains the life of a vine, providing water and nutrients that allow it to flourish and produce grapes of distinctive flavour. A healthy soil with high organic matter provides vines with healthier root systems. The variations in soil across South Australia give rise to an eclectic range of amazing sites for grape growing. From the diversities of McLaren Vale’s dark loam over limestone, sand hills, alluvial plains and black cracking clay to the Terra Rosa of Coonawarra and the Riverland. A kaleidoscope of terroirs and fruit flavours to craft.

Vineyard

Angove Family Winemakers have a diverse range of vineyards across South Australia. We take a holistic approach to growing grapes, we are progressive, generational farmers and have an enduring belief that the land is both an asset and a responsibility

We farm over 500 acres of vineyards across South Australia with one third certified organic meaning we use no artificial herbicides, pesticides and fertilisers. Growing Organic grapes and making Organic wine ensures we are sustainable, are friendly to our environment, have lower pollution and healthier soils that ultimately make better wines. The vines have naturally stronger immune systems and greater resistance to pests, insects and disease

Our McLaren Vale plantings of Shiraz and Grenache contain vines believed to be over 100 years of age. These produce grapes with fantastic flavour and colour concentration and go in to making our top wines

People

A winemaker’s role is to nurture the grapes into wine. With our minimalist and organic philosophy complimented by innovation and hand crafting we aim to make wines that express the soil, sites and season. The Angove team are united in the one purpose, to make the best wine we can every year whilst being environmentally aware and community driven as part of Australian rural life. The vines grow the grapes but it is the people that provide the heart and soul of Angove Family Winemakers.

Wine

Our 100 year old winery has the benefit of both traditional and new techniques for winemaking. Our dedicated Micro Winery handles parcels as small as ½ a tonne. Hand plunging and gentle pumping over extracts colour and flavour. Maturation of our red wines in our cool barrel hall ensures these wines age while retaining freshness and vibrancy. We treat every batch of wine with the upmost respect to ensure flavour and quality across all of our wine ranges. Accredited to the highest standard, our bottling facility ensures our wine is carefully packaged ready to be enjoyed.

Angove Family Winemakers aim is to make wines for all occasions, luxury wines for cellaring or celebration, top shelf wines for enjoying at home or on a special occasion, wines to pair with your favourite home cooked dish and every day wines to share with your family and friends.
