McLaren Vale has its roots from Oxenberry Farm; it was here in 1840 in this picturesque green lush valley where Devonshire farmers William Colton and Charles Hewett set up with their respective families to start new lives in Australia. They landed in Adelaide from England late in 1839 and soon made the trek to the Southern Vales and chose a location near a freshwater spring and built their homes on adjoining parcels of land that had been only been surveyed by John McLaren the year before. The soil was rich and ideal for cattle and livestock and all manner of gardens and crops could be cultivated. Hewett named his property ‘Oxenberry Farm’ and Colton opted for ‘Lower Oxenberry Farm’. Their pioneering spirit, blood, sweat and tears laid the foundations for what has become one of the great wine regions of Australia.

Oxenberry wines represent the combined experience of over 120 years in viticulture, winemaking and geographical knowledge of the Scarpantoni family. The red wines in particular highlight the strengths of certain varieties in differing McLaren Vale geographical locations, and careful consideration has been made to make the best suited varieties of the region into their optimum style of wines rather than trying to make popular varieties into popular styles. To this end the wines will most always be mixed varieties and very limited in production.
