The False Cape Vineyard was selected for its Terra Rosa soils, North Facing slopes and its proximity to the South Coast. False Cape was named after a nearby coastal landmark, it is located in the picturesque Willson River Valley at the East end of Kangaroo Island.
The varieties planted are Cabernet, Shiraz, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Riesling. The vineyard is grown as naturally and organically as possible. All our reds are dry grown with a lower yield giving great intensity and flavour to the grapes.
False Cape Wines can be enjoyed at Kangaroo Island local restaurants, hotels, bottle shops and our New Cellar Door In December 2019.
