James' Review

Paul and Kathy Drogemuller established Paracombe Wines in 1983 in the wake of the devastating Ash Wednesday bushfires. The winery is located high on a plateau at Paracombe, looking out over the Mount Lofty Ranges, and the vineyard is run with minimal irrigation and hand-pruning to keep yields low. The wines are made onsite, with every part of the production process through to distribution handled from there. Exports to Canada, Denmark, Sweden, Indonesia, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Japan and China.

About this winery

Paracombe Wines is an award winning, family-owned, premium Adelaide Hills wine producer. Paul and Kathy Drogemuller established Paracombe Wines in 1983 following the devastating Ash Wednesday bushfires. Their vineyard and winery is uniquely located high on a plateau at Paracombe, with spectacular views of the Mt Lofty Ranges.

Low yields, minimal irrigation and hand pruning ensure only the best grape flavour and quality. The Drogemullers have a great appreciation of the environment and work in harmony with nature in the vineyard and winery. This is supported by specialized care in winemaking, with maturation in the underground cellars, to create truly handcrafted wines, which have gained recognition both within Australia and internationally.

Paul and Kathy share a passion and commitment to produce distinctive wines displaying finesse and varietal intensity. Their specialized range includes fresh, crisp whites and rich, spicy reds for enjoyment on every occasion.

Paracombe wines are made to enjoy by people who are completely passionate about what they do.
