Set on the Bremer flood plain between Lake Alexandrina and the foothills of the Mount Lofty Ranges, Langhorne Creek is at the centre of one of Australia’s oldest wine growing areas.

Dowager duchess among the regional wineries is Bleasdale which has remained in the same family since founder Frank Potts, who paid $614 for 126ha of river flats in 1850, planted 12ha of shiraz and verdelho vines in 1860. Amazingly, the original red gum press built by Potts to crush his first grapes is still in working condition.

Robust reds remain the signature wine locally and the Creek has produced more fruit for winners of Australia’s most coveted red wine award, the Jimmy Watson Trophy, than any other grape-growing region.

A 45-minute drive south-east from Adelaide, Langhorne Creek is part of the Alexandrina Council which presides over 1826sqkm of the Fleurieu Peninsula. It is a beautiful, scenic corner of South Australia, embracing farmland, vineyards, hills, the lower reaches of the Murray River, sea and, of course, the spectacular lake from which the council takes its name.
