Samuel's Gorge Winery
Samuel's Gorge is a mosaic of dreams, with a principal philosophy of people and place.
Housed in a farm shed built in 1853, the winery and cellar door sits atop a ridge. Our winery overlooks the spectacular Onkaparinga River National Park to the North, and to the South, the ocean.
The Samuel's Gorge label is an impression of the rugged landscape that is viewed from the winery; look closer and see our storyboard within the tiles. At Samuel's Gorge we focus on five key varietals; Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvèdre, Graciano and Tempranillo.
The wines of Samuel's Gorge are crafted by hand and reflect the landscape in which we work. We reference history for texture, complexity and harmony. We engage patient techniques, utilising indigenous yeast, ensuring our ferments are long and slow. Our winery is under the cover of a lean to and at night a ceiling of stars.
Driven by aromatics, texture, silkiness and intrigue our wines are great to drink now and yet have structural support and intensity that ensures they cellar well. Samuel's Gorge wines reflect the unique vintage conditions and represent the personality and the imagination of the makers.
