The definitive guide to Australian Wines
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.
