The start of wine production in this region dates back to the 1860s brothers Joseph and Henry Best established a vineyard near Concongella. This is now the jewel in the crown of Best’s Wines. This region is ideally suited to Shiraz – intense berry and black pepper characteristics sometimes accompanied by tinges of eucalyptus. Also noted as particularly good for Riesling. The climate is regarded as cool ‘continental’. The main wine styles: Red – Shiraz; Sparkling; White – Riesling.
