Langhorne Creek, SA

Langhorne Creek is located in the Limestone Coast region of South Australia. Langhorne Creek is at the centre of one of Australia’s oldest wine growing areas. Among the regional wineries is Bleasdale which has remained in the same family since founder Frank Potts, planted 12 ha 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 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.

Langhorne Creek is part of the Alexandrina Council which presides over 1826 sq klm of the Fleurieu Peninsula. It is a beautiful, scenic corner of South Australia, embracing farmland, vineyards, hills, and the lower reaches of the Murray River.
