The Roy Kidman Wine Co is a boutique family owned and operated wine business based in the famous Coonawarra wine region in south eastern South Australia. We enjoy an idyllic grape growing climate in a classically picturesque countryside setting complemented by Coonawarra's established reputation for producing wines of world class quality.
Our family have been growing wine grapes in Coonawarra since 1970 when 3.2 hectares of Shiraz were established on the famous Terra Rossa strip, complementing our Merino sheep flock and beef cattle herd. We remained one of the smallest growers in Coonawarra until 1994 when we established more vineyards to meet the demand for Coonawarra grapes, particularly Cabernet Sauvignon.
A 6 hectare block planted in 1994 soon became a consistent supplier of quality Cabernet Sauvignon to some of Coonawarra’s most famous wine labels. By 2000 we had 58 hectares planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot and the first Viognier in the region.
Since 2004 we have been able to select premium parcels of grapes, the pick of our vineyards, for our own wines.
We take great pride in our personalised hands-on approach in presenting our carefully crafted selection of fine wines for your appreciation and enjoyment.
