At Hahndorf Hill we are on a journey to introduce into Australia the wonderful, food-friendly grape varieties of Austria. We specialise in delicious Austrian-varietal wines and other cool-climate classics in the beautiful Adelaide Hills wine region.
Our boutique vineyard is located at the edge of the historic, German-heritage village of Hahndorf. Here we are growing and pioneering the Austrian grape varieties of Blaufrankisch, Gruner Veltliner, Zweigelt and St Laurent - all varieties that have an incredible affinity with a broad range of cuisines and food types.
We also produce the cool-climate classics for which the Adelaide Hills wine region is renowned - Pinot Grigio, Shiraz and fresh, dry Rosé.
Our most important asset - that allows us to produce wines of quality and distinction - is our diverse range of extraordinary soils at our Hahndorf Hill vineyard.
