Mount Benson Wineries and Vineyards

The Mount Benson wine region is a promising and rapidly growing region located on the western edge of the Limestone Coast. Millions of years ago the Limestone Coast was covered in water, with the expansion of the polar icecaps the seas retreated to leave a layer of soft limestone. This soil is ideal for viticulture as it retains water under the rich topsoils. The cool maritime climate also helps.

The area is truly beautiful with several vineyards sitting on the coast. This close proximity to the ocean often gives a soft aroma of sea air to the bouquet of the wines.

There are several cellar doors in the region which promote its citrus infused whites and full fragrant and highly coloured reds. The prominent varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
