"Grapes were first planted in Wrattonbully in the late 1960s, but it was not until the 1990s that the excellent soils and elevated sites attracted many winemakers. Hardworking farming pioneers settled the Wrattonbully region in 1842, and today the area is still known for its world-class prime lamb, beef and pasture seed productions.
The potential promised by the large tracts of outstanding terra rossa soils over limestone is now being realised, as these vineyards mature and winemakers understand the unique characteristics of Wrattonbully fruit. Limestone caves are a feature of the area, and the Wrattonbully region is home to the World Heritage Listed Naracoorte Caves." - Wine Australia
