Mike Press Wines
Mike Press Wines, located in the internationally acclaimed wine region of the Adelaide Hills in South Australia, sets the benchmark for quality wine at an outstanding price. With a string of awards, the secret to its success lies in a nurtured vineyard, more than four decades of experience, and a commitment to the consumer.
Mike Press started his career with the best, working alongside Max Schubert at Penfolds before moving to Seppelts, and as chief winemaker for Mildara Bass, before planting his vineyard in 1998 to focus on growing quality grapes to on-sell. Boasting 85 acres of scenic beauty, Kenton Valley Vineyards, was chosen because of its cool climate, its altitude of 500 metres above sea level, and its rainfall, which is similar to Bordeaux in France. With a staunch belief that good quality wine comes from a good vineyard, and a hands on approach, Mike is personally involved in every stage of the winemaking - from working the vineyard to bottling and even delivering the wines around South Australia.
James Halliday, Australias leading voice on wine says of Mike Press Wines: “Ive decided to give this winery five stars because there is no other producer offering estate-grown and made wines at prices to compete with these.”
