Wrattonbully - A secluded area of World Heritage-listed ancient geology, originally settled by hardworking farming pioneers, and more recently chosen for its ideal viticultural attributes.
The Wrattonbully wine region is quickly becoming recognised as a region blessed with ideal winegrowing attributes – rich, free-draining soils and a reliable cool climate. This area was once submerged by sea but approximately 1 million years ago the sea began to recede, leaving fourteen stranded coastlines between the Naracoorte Range (near the Nolan Wine Company vineyard) and the current coastline. The World Heritage Listed Naracoorte Caves are in the Wrattonbully wine region. The limestone base and terra rossa soils, as well as other free draining soils in the region make ideal viticultural land.
