This is definitely South Australia's best kept secret!
Langhorne Creek is one of the largest wine grape producing regions in South Australia and yet few people have heard of it.

First a bit of history...
The area was founded on the broad flood plain influenced by the local Bremer and Angas Rivers and dominated by magnificent River Red Gums.
The name Langhorne Creek acknowledges Alfred Langhorne, a cattle drover, who brought animals overland to a property known as Langhorne's Station during the 1840s. The place where Alfred Langhorne traversed the Bremer River was referred to as Langhorne's Crossing, and from this the current name Langhorne Creek evolved.
Frank Potts travelling through the region, recognised the potential of the area and settled in 1850 on the ancient flood plain. He planted the first grapes in the district in the 1860s at the now heritage listed Bleasdale Winery.
The wine region has a proud history of family owned and run vineyards and wineries with the oldest existing vine platings being 113 year old Shiraz on the historic Metala property. These vines still produce premium wine grapes Thfor Metala Black Label wines and their own label Brothers in Arms.
People that had been to Langhorne Creek knew how special this place really was. The storiesabout legends, the intimate surrounds and of course the quality wines.
