The Winery

Our first vintage in 1986 required one 1500 litre stainless steel tank and five barrels. We continued this way until 1990, when 80 tonnes were processed during our first truly commercial vintage. Today 600 tonnes are processed for the Scotchmans Hill wines, as well as contract winemaking for a number of local clients.

The winery today is a modern facility featuring an 8000 cubic metre temperature controlled barrel hall that houses up to 1000 barrels. The winemaking equipment ranges from modern and progressive through to traditional. Our ultimate aim is to produce highly individualistic wines by using both modern and traditional winemaking techniques.
