Cellar Door & Wine Sales
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 Chief Winemaker and Viticulturist, and is the driver of the stylistic wines of Wangolina today. Our 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 you will find our vineyards and Wine Room.
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.
Our varieties include Sauvignon Blanc- our hero white; 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. We source alternative varieties Tempranillo, Lagrein and Frontignac from within the Limestone Coast to extend our range of wines. We enjoy these varieties and are passionate about putting forward a broad portfolio for our consumers to enjoy. We have also engaged in a ‘Kindergarten’ trial block at Wangolina of alternative varieties such as ‘Grüner Veltliner’ and we look forward to their progression and introduction into the region.
We are a small team of passionate people that love where we live and are proud to produce wines that are enjoyed and sought after. We live on the land, within the region and we indulge in the coastal way of life. Visit our wine room today to discover the home and the heart of Mt Benson, Wangolina.
