Mr Riggs Wine Company

South Australia | McLaren Vale

Our Review

With over a quarter of a century of winemaking experience, Ben Riggs is well established under his own banner. Ben sources the best fruit from individual vineyards in McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills, Langhorne Creek, Coonawarra and from his own Piebald Gully Vineyard (shiraz and viognier). Each wine expresses the essence of not only the vineyard but also the region’s terroir. The vision of the Mr Riggs brand is unpretentious and personal: ‘To make the wines I love to drink’. He drinks very well. Exports to the US, Canada, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Singapore, NZ, Hong Kong and China.

About

Mr. Riggs can be summed up in two words; Winemaker's Wine. Built on the winemaker's long held dream to make icon wines from icon regions, the wines express the essence of the vineyard and variety in a style that is big, rich and complex, but also with finesse, texture and elegance. Based in his beloved McLaren Vale, Ben Riggs also teams up with renowned growers from other tried and tested regions including Clare Valley, Barossa Valley, Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra and McLaren Vale. The philosophy behind all wines from Mr. Riggs; “I make wines I love to drink!”
