Sustainable practices

DogRidge supports vineyard biodiversity and employs modern sustainable viticultural practices that optimize vine health and sun exposure, creating fruit of extraordinary quality.

Named DogRidge for the winemaking family’s extreme love of Curly Coat Retrievers The Dog Ridge’s ecologically driven vineyards typify why the McLaren Vale is such a great winegrowing region. The balanced vines on the estate have consistently produced powerful wines with generous fruit driven spicy flavours and perfumed aromas.

DogRidge is located at the base of The Range overlooking the McLaren Vale wine region. This premium South Australian wine-growing region is known for its consistency and reliability. The DogRidge Vineyards employ modern viticultural practices, which optimise sun exposure and canopy health, resulting in ripe fruit of intense colour and quality. This desirable combination has led to the creation of wines that express outstanding depth of colour, aromatic elegance and richness of flavour.

DogRidge owns 140 acres (56 hectares) and operates established grapevines ranging in age from 2001 plantings to some of the oldest vines remaining in the region today. At the McLaren Flat vineyards, DogRidge boasts some 60+ year-old Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache that form the basis of their bottled product. The soils vary considerably over a small area giving them the opportunity to select small parcels of the best fruit for small batch fermentation.
