Sidewood Estate

South Australia | Adelaide Hills

James' Review

Sidewood Estate is part-vineyard and part-horse stables and racehorse training. Owned by Owen and Cassandra Inglis since 2004, both aspects of the business are flourishing. Sidewood Estate lies in the Onkaparinga Valley, with the vines weathering the coolest climate in the Adelaide Hills. Significant expenditure on regeneration of and increase in the size of the vineyards was already well underway when Sidewood obtained a SA State Regional Government Fund grant of $856 000, being part of a $3.5 million expansion of the winery capacity from 500 to 2000 tonnes each vintage. The expenditure includes new bottling and canning facilities capable of handing 400000 bottles of wine and cider annually. Wines are released under the Sidewood Estate, Stable Hill and Mappinga labels, the last the Reserve range. Exports to the UK, the US and other major markets.

About

Sidewood is a privately owned winery nestled in the cool climate region of the Adelaide Hills, the heart of Australian premium wine. Owners and Vignerons, Owen and Cassandra Inglis founded Sidewood in 2004 with a passion to create beautifully balanced and elegant award winning wines of the highest quality. Though history is short, Sidewood has achieved five red-star accreditation from James Halliday and in 2016 became the largest eco sustainable winery in the Adelaide Hills. Sidewood’s portfolio now encompasses four individual vineyards in Oakbank, Echunga, Nairne and Verdun. The original 300 acre Oakbank vineyard is situated in the Onkaparinga Valley, 380m above sea level and is also home to Sidewood’s 40 thoroughbred race horses that fall under the name, Stable Hill Thoroughbreds. Climate, soil type, an unwavering focus on excellence in viticulture combined with hand-picking and fruit selection play a vital role to ensure that only the best fruit is grown and used for Sidewood Wines. Sidewood Wines are made by internationally acclaimed Winemaker, Darryl Catlin at Sidewood’s state of the art winery at Nairne in the Adelaide Hills.
