A love of fine wine, an appreciation of art and care for the environment has created our winery, “Kings of Kangaroo Ground”.
Kangaroo Ground is unique. An oasis of deep rich volcanic soils amid an ancient landscape where vines now grow and the kangaroos still graze.
Owner and Winemaker Ken King planted the vineyard in 1990, selecting the early ripening Burgundy varieties Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The vines are vigorous but kept in balance by dry growing techniques and three hand prunings per year.
Contrary to conventional wisdom, the vineyard is planted on a south slope to deliberately delay the ripening of the fruit to enable full varietal flavours to develop.
All wines are made on site, capturing the moment when the grapes are at their peak and transferring that instant to the glass.
“To promote the traditional art of winemaking utilising age old practices and minimal winemaker intervention; we want our wines to make themselves”
