The Paracombe vineyard and winery is located high on a plateau at Paracombe in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia.
Paul and Kathy Drogemuller established Paracombe Wines in 1983 following the Ash Wednesday bushfires.
The property, a former dairy farm was totally ravaged by the bushfire, despite the devastation, Paul and Kathy could see great potential as a vineyard site and commenced plantings which has grown to close to 16 hectares today.
Together with hard work and vision they designed and built a fully operational winery with facility to crush around 1000 tonnes of fruit.
The Drogemuller’‘s Paracombe vineyard lies 425 metres above sea level. Soil is lean with ironstone, buckshot gravel and quartz, an interesting remnant from an ancient riverbed. These characters along with minimal irrigation contribute a strong influence in wine style and flavour.
