Our Story

 

Women in tasting room

Foggo Wines is one of McLaren Vale's hidden gems. Small in stature, but big in heart, our independent winery produces some of McLaren Vale’s most exceptional hand-crafted wines and fortifieds.

We are the home to the Crackin’ Shiraz, the spicy Garnacha, the dark and beguiling Cabernet Sauvignon and the crisp and dry Sangiovese Rosé.

We also produce 10 unique and out-of-the-box fortifieds – earning us the mantle of McLaren Vale’s ‘Home of the Fortified.’ Think La Dolce Vita Foggocello, Golden Muscat, Obilivion Syrah Fortified and Gilded Goddess Apera…..

“Our fave in the ‘little known hidden gem’ category…..no flashy architecturally designed cellar door, restaurant or tourist buses, just beautiful handcrafted wines.” J.F Heard

Foggo’s 20-acre boutique vineyard is located in the heart of McLaren Vale at Foggo Road, just around the corner from Pizzatecca and Settler’s Gin.

The main vineyard was originally planted with Shiraz vines by prominent regional growers, the Foggo family, in 1915. Our gnarled, heritage shiraz vines are some of the oldest in the district, and are lovingly tended and hand-picked each vintage to produce the rich and bold shiraz that has become synonymous with the Foggo name. Other grape varieties on the foggo vineyard include Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Chardonnay.

Our vines are watered, nourished, mulched and harvested in harmony with the seasons and as naturally as possible. Many of our heritage vines are handpicked each vintage. Our wines are then pressed and stored in American oak to give them the distinctive foggo richness, aroma and mouth-feel.
