About

Anvers is the French name for the Belgian city of Antwerpen as it is called in Flemish, or Antwerp as it is known in English. Anvers is the home town of Myriam Keoghan and also where Wayne and Myriam first met in 1983.

At Anvers, quality is more than paramount – it is everything!

Anvers’ grapes are sourced from low-yielding vineyards in the world-renowned regions of McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek, as well as from Anvers’ Estate vineyard nestled near Kangarilla in the Adelaide Hills - where 16 hectares is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier.

Grapes sourced from these regions lead to the creation of wines displaying big, bold, intense flavours, yet a tantalising elegance and softness. These qualities have become the hallmarks of Anvers Wines.

First-class grapes, traditional techniques, and a staunch ‘quality not quantity’ mindset are the three main contributors that have lead to Anvers’ quite remarkable success - with both critics and the public.
