Whistling Kite Biodynamic Wines is the culmination of almost two decades of organic and sustainable farming practices. From our "traditional" varieties (Chardonnay & Shiraz), to emerging, or alternative varieties (Montepulciano & Petit Manseng), all of our wines have a unique flavour and each create their own drinking experience, expressing the variety's character and reflecting the unique terroir of the vineyard.
Whistling Kite Wines are expertly made by our friends Eric and Jenny Semmler of 919 Wines. With our encouragement, and Tony’s in particular, 919 Wines is joining us on the Biodynamic journey. Eric and Jenny have over 40 years' combined winemaking experience and have received many accolades, including Winestate Magazine's Winemaker of the Year 2014. In Eric's own words...
"I have often found that a high quality wine, which exhibits complexity, balance, harmony and a sense of place, will often take you on a journey of discovery, will be an adventure, or when enjoyed with good food and good company will create a memorable occasion for many years into the future."
Set your watch to river time and spend the days visiting wineries, farmers’ markets, a micro brewery and friendly pubs – unexpected experiences wait for you in the Riverland.
Only a 90 minute drive from Adelaide to Blanchetown, or from Mildura (Victoria) to Renmark, you will find some of the best food and wine on the Murray River- along with unique wilderness environment of wetlands and floodplain forest created by 375 kilometres of meandering Murray River, Australia’s longest waterway.
With its ochre- coloured cliffs, water sports, delicious produce, proud pioneer history and vibrant art scene, the Riverland offers something special for every type of traveller.
