Beautiful Cellar Door! This small family run winery is a must see. Just down the road from Cape Jaffa Winery and worth the drive! All hand production from pruning to production. We had a long talk with Ralph's wine and learnt their long history of involvement in the wine industry going back to her childhood. Wines excellent and incredibly good... More

Had a long conversation with Ralph Fowler who was working the cellar door, really interesting guy and with some great wines (ended up buying more here than anywhere else!). He also has wines made by his daughter to try, which are a different style and pretty good value. Would highly recommend this place as I thought the stuff we tried... More

Wow nearly missed this winery but we turned around and it was well worth the visit. Staff were so welcoming and friendly, very happy to let you sample and give advice on wines. Prices were very reasonable.

We have been wanting to visit this winery for ages and had the opportunity yesterday. Superb quality with, as other reviewers have noted, a brilliant winemaker who is also the cellar doorsman. This little winery, which helps out other small producers in the region is a retirement business for a guy who used to work as winemaker for Leconfield in... More

Arguably the best Shiraz I've ever tasted. A great wine & will last for years. I've just drank my last 1999 Ralph Fowler Shiraz & it was still a great drink.

A very nicely presented cellar door, likeable owner ready with easy conversation. You also get to try wines from the owner's daughter's winery Frog Island, so a very neat way of comparing wine styles. Some pretty nice wines too!

We didn't have any expectations other than the cellar door had been recommended to us whilst staying in Robe. Don't expect any fancy trappings of the bigger vineyards, what you have here is so much better. Firstly, Ralph Fowler attends to you himself, he's a very personable man. Ralph has done what many would love to but never have the... More

An extremely intering small vineyard where the wine maker Ralph Fowler has brought to the region a french influence. His Vignoer is outstanding and all wines reasonable priced. Only too happy to explain the vintages the area and the growing conditions

We stopped here on the way to Robe this winter. We did not know much about the winery except for its reputation. In fact we did not know much about the Mt Benson wineries before our trip South. This winery has cellar door sales (not many of the region's wineries do) so we decided to give it a go. We... More
