This is the venture of John and Sarae Adamopoulos, who (in 2008) acquired 12ha of shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and merlot which had been planted in 1997. John's father and uncles have grown grapes in McLaren Vale since migrating to Australia from Greece in the '50s and '60s, and he has now followed in their footsteps. In a prior life John was an engineer and thereafter and engineering teacher, but he is now the full-time carer for ShowBlock Estate. Exports to Hong Kong and Taiwan.
At ShowBlock Estate Wines we grow grapes for flavour not schedules and make wine for friends not shareholders. Sensual and sophisticated, single vineyard wines from South Australia's beautiful Fleurieu Peninsular.
