Langhorne Creek takes its name from Alfred Langhorne, a cattleman who rested his cattle on the surrounding floodplains of the Bremer River after crossing it on his way to the Adelaide markets in the 1840s.
For over 120 years Langhorne Creek has been consistently supplying high quality fruit to many leading labels of wineries in other regions. “The middle palate of red wines in Australia” has been Langhorne Creeks position amongst Australian wine producers, but over the past 15 years or so it has emerged as an incredibly strong premium wine producing region in its own right.
Today vineyards of the Langhorne Creek Region total approximately 6,500 hectares, making it Australias largest premium red wine grape growing region; it is red wine country.
The DNA of Langhorne Creek is comprised of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Malbec, and the uniqueness of the flood plains adds to the quality of the fruit grown in this region.
