James' Review

The Conte family has a large vineyard, predominantly established since 1960 but with 2.5ha of shiraz planted 100 years earlier. The vineyard includes shiraz, grenache, cabernet sauvignon, sauvignon blanc and chardonnay. While continuing to sell a large proportion of the production, winemaking has become a larger part of the business. Exports to the US, Canada and china.

About this winery

The Estate situated in Mclaren Vale, universally recognised as one of Australia’s premier wine producing regions, has not only provided Steve and Maria with years of hard work and wonderful tasting vintages but also many happy memories of raising the family – Dianna, Clara, Linda and Danial in an environment discovering that the very best things in life are free.

Winemaker Danial the youngest of the four producing excellent premium wines, winning awards and positive reviews overseas and domestically. Sales and Marketer Dianna the eldest of the four has gained export success selling into Singapore, China, USA and Canada.

The families achievements have driven them to reach their well earned success in the wine industry and their ` Passion for wine reflected in every glass ‘motto is very much apart of their winemaking.
