Wangolina home to the Goode family for nearly 100 years has a history steeped in agriculture and generational family change. Once a predominantly sheep and cattle business, has now become dual purpose, with vineyards and winemaking at the forefront of this change.
Owner Anita Goode grew up with a dream to be a winemaker after a stint at Wynns, Coonawarra, as a work experience kid back in the early 90’s. A dream that she has gone on to achieve with the Wangolina vineyard plantings on her property in Mt Benson, Limestone Coast SA.
An Oenology degree from Adelaide University and stints overseas in the US and NZ saw her return home with the knowledge and confidence to make and release the range of Wangolina wines in 2002. Anita continues in a role of Maker + Grower and is the creator of the stylistic wines of Wangolina today. Their home is the coastal wine region of Mt Benson, which is part of the pristine and rugged coastline within the Limestone Coast of South Australia. Situated halfway between the beautiful towns of Robe & Kingston SE.
Maritime Mt Benson is a cool climate, boutique region of few producers. But these producers are dynamic, diverse and forward thinking, a collective of passionate winemakers and wine drinkers. With varieties chosen specifically to weather the abundant coastal conditions, we are lucky to live in a place that is climatically beneficial to make wines that are both terroir driven and immediately appealing to today’s consumer.
Their varieties include Grüner Veltliner, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Semillon, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. These varieties are very much a product of the Mt Benson terroir with a cool climate style reflecting through. Descriptors such as elegance, minerality, refreshing, humble, enjoyable and different are but a few. Wangolina also source alternative varieties such as Tempranillo, Lagrein, Montepulciano and Frontignac from within the Limestone Coast to extend the range of wines.
