Background

Mount Benson is a viticultural area situated on the coast of South Australia, 300 km south of Adelaide. The region lies south of the estuary of the Murray River, the Coorong and north of the historic township of Robe. It is comprised of rolling hills of red sandy loam soil over a free draining limestone base - known as 'terra rossa' soil - the very same as in Coonawarra. Long sunshine hours and summer temperatures are tempered by cooling sea breezes due to the proximity to the Great Southern Ocean which favours viticulture in this area. The moderate climate factors together with the special soil are the essential elements for premium grape growing.
