Our Story

Nestled in the heart of the Adelaide Hills

Nepenthe was established in 1994 driven by the vision to become one of the region’s benchmark wineries, known for producing premium wines that showcase the unique nature of our home.

We adopt a minimal intervention mentality, believing good wine is made in the vineyard. We source from a variety of sites throughout the region to achieve complexity and maintain quality in our wines. Never one to rest on our laurels we are constantly exploring new vineyards and techniques to capture the essence of our micro climates and varieties.

Created at the hands of master craftsmen our wines are vibrant, fresh and textural.

Home to the wild and diverse Adelaide Hills

The Adelaide Hills, a winding maze of rolling peaks and misty gullies, are home to small communities, secluded farmhouses, artisan craftsmen and the Nepenthe vineyards. The diverse landscape creates a variety of microclimates where orchards, farms and wineries take on the challenge of taming the land and now we are ready to share it with the world. The diversity of the Adelaide Hills creates unique microclimates that enable an array of grape varieties to thrive, resulting in a multitude of different wine styles.

We’re proud of our regional heritage as producers of some of Australia’s most celebrated wines and it’s no surprise Nepenthe continues to capture the best of The Hills regional qualities.
