South Australia is filled with stunning vineyards and delicious wines, and while Adelaide Hills winery Artwine has all of that, they also bring something different.
The Woodside winery not only has a gorgeous cellar door, which boasts floor to ceiling glass walls overlooking their beautiful vineyards, but they’re also bringing something new to wine drinkers: European old-world wines that are new to Australia.
Founded by Judy and Glen Kelly, family-run business Artwine has been operating and bringing a large range of new-emerging wine varieties, known as alternative varieties, to the region since 2008. The pioneering winery, which has won more than 25 trophies and numerous medals, was the first to plant Fiano, Graciano, Viognier , Montepulciano and Grenache Gris in the Clare Valley and are still the only Adelaide Hills cellar door offering an estate-grown Prosecco and Albariño.
Judy tells us that in addition to providing new and exciting flavours, Artwine’s offerings benefit the earth.
“These wines are climatically appropriate and more sustainable to our changing environment,” she says.
Artwine currently has 16 wines, with three to come in the next few years, and delicious local produce platters on offer in their gorgeous cellar door. Guests can dine on charcuterie as they try unique wines through an educational yet fun tasting experience. Through the cellar door’s all-glass building, a dream for aesthetic-lovers and architects alike, guests can also take in vineyard views as they wine and dine.
With a name inspired by the owners’ joint love of art, colour, and wine, Artwine is a fun-filled spot to try new wines and see beautiful scenery.
