Bay of Shoals Wines

Come and taste award winning wines at our boutique, coastal winery just 5 minutes North of Kingscote. Enjoy delicious local produce whilst you soak in the spectacular ocean and vineyard views from the cellar door.

The Bay of Shoals Wines Estate is built on the historic Reeves Farm, one of South Australia’s first settlements. John Willoughby purchased the property in 1992 and planted the first vine cuttings in 1993. The Cellar Door opened in Easter 2006 and our first estate made wines followed in 2007. We currently have 10 hectares of established vines and a further 10 hectares of newly planted vines. There are nine different varieties of grapes grown on the property, many of which are available for tasting.

The distinctive pelican labeling on the Bay of Shoals Wine bottles has been created in memory of Milton Turner who started the pelican feeding on the beach in front of the vineyards. The unique ocean views over the vines is what makes tasting at Bay of Shoals Wines such a special experience.  The nautical theme and historic boat collection has been a labour of love for owner John Willoughby who first fell in love with Kangaroo Island when he sailed the North Coast of KI in 1963.
