We reckon most things in life are better when they’re shared.

At our place, that’s done over the table - loaded with backyard produce, a bottle or two of good wine and surrounded by family and friends.

It might be our Greek heritage that inspired us to work the land. Since leaving more than 60 years ago Chris, with his wife Fran, has worked the Terra Rossa soils of Coonawarra, growing tomatoes, lettuces and strawberries before Steven joined his parents in the family business, together planting vines in 1990.

Our two sites feature both the young and the old; regional classics Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot along with Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris.

Through the winter months, the vines share our land with a small trip of goats who maintain the rows, doing their bit to contribute to our micro-climate.

2 lemon trees, 20 apple trees, 300 strawberry plants, 200 bushes of oregano and whatever else Chris has decided to grow on any given day, share the space with our cellar door.

Come visit us and you might chance upon Chris offering up the backyard’s latest bounty or you’ll find us, Steven and Emma Raidis, at the table, glass in hand, ready to share a story or two.

  • Highly recommend while you are in the area. Staff great to deal with too.
  • We were lucky enough to visit this winery for a Spring Shindig. The local chef cooked his famous Greek Charcoal Grill. There was a live rock music and an open fire. Totally friendly and cozy atmosphere. They offered a pretty good deal: $35 per one entry, voucher for a Greek charcoal grill with salad and mashed potato and one Riedel wine glass which we could keep as a souvenir. You can also buy a glass or bottle of wine - we got a bottle for $20 and spent an amazing evening in Coonawarra. Thank you for a great memory.
