The geologically diverse vineyards bring their own unique characteristics influencing the character of each grape variety.
The rich history of South Australian winemaking dates back to the early 19th century, with the first vine being planted in 1836. Millon Wines, caretakers of the land and vines, ensure the utmost care for our environment and the local community. Become part of the complexity of our story by sharing a glass of wine with us.
The Eden Valley, which forms part of the greater Barossa region, is located around 75 km from the city of Adelaide. Winemaking history in the region dates back to the mid 1800’s. Our vineyard was first planted in 1999 with Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, followed by Riesling and Frontignac in 2001. In more recent years we have planted alternative varieties such as Tempranillo and Pinot Grigio.
The Clare Valley is one of Australia’s oldest wine regions with more than 160 years of winemaking history. Located about 100 km north of Adelaide, the Clare has warm days, cool nights and minimal summer rain. These factors provide the preconditions to make outstanding wine. When combined with the terra-rossa soil that is throughout the district, Clare has a rare ability to produce top class Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and world class Riesling.
Located in South Australia on only a relatively small area of land, the diverse nature of the landscape, from flat plains to rolling hills, as well as its varied soil types, make the Barossa Valley ideal for growing an impressive number of different grape varieties. Barossa Shiraz is particularly noteworthy and is widely considered the regions signature variety. In fact, the Barossa Valley is said to be home to some of the oldest Shiraz vines in the world.
