Ngeringa

At the base of the Mount Barker summit along the southern end of the Adelaide Hills sits a small straw-bale winery. To either side nestle three small vineyards. The vines are small by design but they are sturdy and glowing with the health and self-sufficiency that their biodynamic condition harnesses. A small herd of Scottish Highland cattle graze in the neighbouring paddocks, with hay and grain growing in additional fields. Sheep roam the vineyard in winter and a flock of chickens and guinea fowl remain permanent residents amongst the vines. A small orchard and large vegetable garden give fresh produce to the vintage crew and to one of Adelaide's top restaurants. This is Erinn & Janet Klein's way of life and it is the way they create wines of distinction, with vitality of fruit and of a traditional style with elegance and structure. This is NGERINGA.
Ngeringa Vineyard covered with netsEstablished in 2001 and now with 5 hectares of vines planted across 2 vineyard sites (Mt Barker Springs and Nairne), 4 hectares of olive grove, a small herd of Scottish Highland Cattle, sheep, chickens, ducks & guinea fowl, hay pastures, revegetation areas and an enormous veggie garden, the ideal of achieving a closed farm unit is well on the way.
“Our approach to both the growing and the making of the wine is purposely traditional doing much in the vineyard by hand and being as least interventionist in the winemaking as possible. We are aiming to create wines of a traditional style with elegance and structure. Our minimalist approach favours hand harvest and small batch winemaking, only wild fermentation and the use of minimal new (French) oak. We hope the result is wine with vitality and integrity, genuinely expressing the fruit from which it was made. ”
