Pine Drive Vineyards
Our Pine Drive Vineyards are located directly between the Moppa and Ebenezer sub districts along Pine Drive in the Barossa Valley. We call this area Moppa Dunes.
Location, Location, Location
We call this area Moppa Dunes as it is extremely rare and the only area in the Barossa that has extensive sand drift dunes which were deposited over 18,000 years ago during particularly fierce winds that blew during the colder period when more of the coastline was exposed.
Max Schubert (creator of the reknowned Penfolds Grange) spoke in glowing terms of the wines that come from this region and this is supported by current winemakers today.
Many of the vineyards in this sub region make wine that are included in Grange or are of renowned quality.
The 8.5 ha of vineyards are planted out in the following way:
Vineyard 1 – 1.66 ha of Shiraz planted in 1964
Vineyard 2 – 3.07 ha of Shiraz planted in 1990
Vineyard 3 – 1.58 ha of Shiraz planted in 1993
Vineyard 4 – 2.14 ha of Shiraz planted in 2017
All vines are all hand pruned and hand picked.
The vineyard is drip irrigated via water from the dam on the property.
