Established in 1981, Haselgrove is surrounded by over 10 hectares of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mataro vines – with the Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon vines dating back more than 60 years. We also work with a group of dedicated McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills growers. Although renowned for producing rich and robust award winning reds from McLaren Vale, our whites are also making ripples with wine writers and on the wine show circuit.
The gods were smiling the day that Haselgrove came to life. The site was chosen for a number of reasons, including aspect and soil composition, but lets face it, we are in the heart of Australian wine country and a perfect place to create world class, iconic and award winning wines.
Although established in 1981, it wasn’t until 1999 that the winery as it stands today was built. Change again was afoot, when in 2008 over a game of cards and couple of hearty reds four Italian-Australian industry veterans decided to purchase Haselgrove. Don Totino, Don Luca, Steve Maglieri and Tony Carrocci went to work injecting a heap of passion and ultimately revamping the brand, it’s presentation and its entire range of wines.
Over the past 2 years, Haselgrove has been awarded the Dark Horse Winery of the Year 2015 and achieved a 5 star rating by James Halliday. In addition, we have accumulated numerous trophy’s and gold medals on the national and international wine show circuit, including over 10 wines with a 90+ Halliday rating and 6 wines with a 90+ Parker rating. We are also very proud to be associated with Qantas and Korean Airlines where our wines are served to First and Business Class passengers.
