The Stonehaven winery and vineyards are situated in the Limestone Coast, the area in South Australia that stretches from Padthaway in the north to the Southern Ocean. It is one of Australia's pre-eminent wine regions and is characterised by fertile Terra Rossa soils over a limestone base.
These conditions combined with an abundant supply of artesian water form ideal conditions for viticultural production. A fact borne out by continuing vintages of exceptional wines.
The name 'Stonehaven' was bestowed by the Scottish pioneers who settled in the Limestone Coast region. The original parcel of land which was know as 'Stonehaven' is now the site of the current Wrattonbully vineyard. The region's natural advantages provided the basis for productive and prosperous communities that have gone on to establish a long tradition of working the land. This is a heritage that today finds expression in viticulture and the production of fine wines.
The southermost of Stonehaven's vineyards are to be found in the Coonawarra. This long established region is renowned for its rich and fertile 'Terra Rossa' soils and the magnificent full-bodied red wines that are associated with the area.
