Kangaroo Island Wine Region

Forget the aisles of your local supermarket – this is a food and wine isle you’re not likely to forget.

What’s so special about produce from Kangaroo Island? Maybe it’s because the island is separated from the mainland and remains a clean, green environment, untainted by large-scale development. And many innovative islanders have turned their hands to alternative primary production.

It’s South Australia’s newest wine region with 29 growers and more than 200 hectares of vines. A pristine wilderness Island just off the south coast.

Taste the boutique wines at Sunset Winery, Dudley Wines, Bay of Shoals or Two Wheeler Creek cellar doors. Sample Kangaroo Island’s many other wines and the finest local produce at one of many restaurants and cafes. Take your tastebuds on tour through the island’s growing range of gourmet produce – from award-winning sheep milk cheeses at the Island Pure Sheep Dairy to pure Ligurian honey and olive oil.

Visit Island Pure Sheep Dairy and sample Spanish and Greek sheep milk style cheeses and yoghurt on one of the dairy’s daily tours. Visit between 3-5pm and see the sheep being milked. Your taste buds will discover why more sheep are milked worldwide than cows.

The distinctive taste of marron has found its way into the kitchens of many restaurants around Australia. These freshwater crustaceans look a little like a lobster and are farmed and open to the public at Andermel Marron, close to gorgeous Vivonne Bay.

Kangaroo Island’s apiarists harvest honey from the pure strain Ligurian bees. Clifford’s Honey Farm and Island Bee Hive offer tours daily and there’s an opportunity to buy a range of honey and products – seek out the Island’s famous honey ice cream at Clifford’s!

Come to Kangaroo Island and hear the story of our food and wine first hand from the producer.

“From the Meet and Greet where David asked us about the wines we normally drink, to the scenic tour and the divine wines we tried, it was the best day of our entire holiday. David is a wonderful and fun character that went out of his way to make sure we were enjoying both the wines but also the entire experience. Have recommended him to friends and will tour with him again when we come back to Adelaide. Thanks Mate!”

A fantastic private wine tour run by David. I can’t rave enough about David and he’s ‘magic van’ what we called his very well equipped van and the tour. David listened to what we wanted to do and drink and tailored the day around us. Lunch was included in the bill. We couldn’t believe how quickly the day went and were really happy with the vineyards we visited. David was knowledgeable and fun!”
