Our Review

Scott Longbottom and Cheryl Merrett are 3rd-generation farmers in Padthaway. They commenced planting the vineyard in 1995 on the family property and now there are shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay and merlot. Initially the majority of the grapes were sold, but increasing quantities held for the Farmer’s Leap label have seen production rise. Exports to Canada, Singapore, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong and China.

The Longbottom family have been farming in Padthaway, South Australia since 1938. Onions, sheep and cattle have long been their main stay. In 1993 the first vines were planted. Now over 400 ha are dedicated to wine grape production with 6 varieties being produced Outstanding fruit quality across all of our grape varieties, combined with our uncontrived winemaking style, see’s Farmer’s Leap deliver a quality bottle of wine you can trust.
