Banrock Station wines typify everything Australian; bold, generous and full of character. Flavoursome and easy-drinking with appeal to palates the world over, Banrock Station wines are full flavoured, and value for money with varietal integrity, demonstrating respect for the good earth from which they have come.
Since 1995, Banrock Station has delivered quality wines to people across the globe, while making a significant and lasting contribution to environmental projects that are “helping protect our beautiful planet.”
For nearly 20 years, the Banrock Station Environmental Trust has re-invested profits from the sale of Banrock Station wines into environmental projects around the world, and our commitment to date exceeds AUD$6 million to more than 130 projects in 13 countries to help protect our beautiful planet.
We take great pride in a brand that has enabled consumers to make a genuine contribution to global conservation. Thanks for raising a glass to help protect our beautiful planet.
Located in South Australia, 214km north east of Adelaide, Banrock Station spans 4,700 acres on the banks of the River Murray, with 1,500 acres of premium wine grapes. Purchased in 1995 in a joint partnership with Landcare to restore 2,500 acres of wetlands, Banrock Station is now recognised under the Ramsar Convention as internationally important.
From around the world we’ve selected grape varieties that produce excellent fruit in the South Australian climate. Banrock Station wines typify everything Australian; bold, generous and full of character.
Our range embraces well-loved traditional styles and innovations for today’s adventurous palates. From table wines to the ever popular refreshing and spritzed moscatos, and sparkling. New takes on ‘old’ varieties, such as our enticing Shiraz Rosé, capture the mood of contemporary dining and wine enjoyment.
Mediterranean varieties are well suited to the warmer climatic conditions of our vineyards in addition to offering an adventure to the senses. Raised in Australian soil and sun, these wines blend their Mediterranean heritage with the unique nuances of our country.
A unique pairing of Good Earth and Fine Wine, Banrock Station’s climate is ideal for producing wonderful fruit-driven, innovative wine styles, all of which can be enjoyed at our Wine Centre or over a relaxed lunch enjoying local produce dining at our café on the deck overlooking the wetland and network of self-guided walking trails.
The vineyards at Banrock Station are surrounded by an internationally significant wetland environment on the banks of the ‘Mighty Murray’, Australia’s largest river. We like to think that the abundance of local flora and fauna – some of which are rare and endangered – contribute to the character of our wines where fruity notes and a playfulness on the palate are hallmarks of the Banrock range.
The Riverland region provides ideal warm climate grape growing conditions for a range of varieties, and it’s not unusual to see kangaroos and wallabies sheltering from the hot summer sun in the shade of our grape vines. Tourists and locals alike can also be found sheltering nearby in our award winning Banrock Station Wine and Wetland Centre with its stunning deck overlooking the wetlands and network of self-guided walking trails.
“Our environmental initiatives are such an exciting part of our focus and demonstrate that wine production and conservation go hand-in-hand. I’ve been lucky enough to visit some of our international projects and have really enjoyed meeting with some of our consumers who love our wine and are keen to hear more about our work.”
