James' Review

Calabria Family Wines (until 2014 known as Westend Estate) has successfully lifted both the quality and the packaging of its wines. Its 3 Bridges range is anchored on estate vineyards. The operation is moving with the times, increasing its plantings of durif and introducing aglianico, nero d'Avola and St Macaire (on the verge of extinction, and once grown in Bordeaux, this 2ha is the largest planting in the world). Equally importantly, it is casting its net over the Barossa Valley, Hilltops and King Valley premium regions, taking this one step further by acquiring a vineyard in the Barossa Valley (Corner Light Pass Road/Magnolia Road, Vine Vale), and opening a cellar door/restaurant. Exports to the UK, the US and other major markets, including China.
