The Dowie Doole boys established their own McLaren Vale winery in the mid-nineties, having grown increasingly frustrated with watching their grapes being trucked off to other wineries. Their main aim has been to produce classic McLaren Vale wines that are more elegant and refined in style than mainstream Australian wines. Their 50 hectares of vines are spread between their home vineyard and four others: Tintookie, Old Rifle Range, California Road and Wetlands Vineyards. Only the finest fruit is used with state of the art modern winemaking technology.
In addition, the team are committed to increasing bio-diversity in the vineyards. As well as cultivating more uncommon varietals for Australia such as Chenin and Tempranillo, it is their premium Shiraz for which they are best known. Our relationship with Dowie Doole goes back almost ten years; our growing portfolio of Dowie Doole wines is testament to our belief in this estate and our passion for their outstanding wines.
