Kersbrook Hill

We are a family owned & operated Vineyard, Winery & Cellar Door located in the Adelaide Hills in the small township of Kersbrook. Kersbrook Hill is a premium 5 star producer specialising in premium cool climate wines & cider.
Kersbrook Hill Wines was established in 1997 by Managing Director Paul Clark with the purchase of the current Kersbrook property. The first planting were undertaken in a small 0.4 hectare vineyard site which now supplies the premium Shiraz “Don’s Acre”.

The best way to explain the vision we have for Kersbrook Hill Wines & Cider is through our motto “Quality, Imagination, Style”. We aim to produce wines of the highest possible quality, in a style that is truly distinctive and providing both the connoisseur and the everyday drinker with an experience to remember.
In order to achieve this we have limited the vineyards fruit production to a maximum of 3 tonnes per acre, (less than half a tonne in the case of “Dons Acre”). This results in fruit with amazing flavours and levels of intensity producing wine that fits our vision. We also like to experiment with new and different styles to create “Small Batch” wines that catch the imagination and delight the senses, most of these are only available from our cellar door.

In June 2009 Paul and Mary opened the Kersbrook Hill Cellar Door in the Main Street of Kersbrook. We have utilised two existing buildings in Kersbrook that were no longer being used, one being the old Kersbrook CFS Station, the other is the Kersbrook Cold Store – Farmers CO-OP. With a few minor and not so minor modifications we have transformed them into our Cellar Door & Winery. These modifications are still continuing today seeing us make the most of our somewhat limited space.

In 2012 we started to expand into contract winemaking and contract bottling for other Adelaide Hills and Barossa Wineries and also began a more managed approach to marketing our Products and Services which has proved a success.

January 2nd 2015 was a day that changed us as people as well as our business as we know it. The Sampson Flat Bush Fire ravaged our Bagshaw Road Property sparing only our family home. The vineyard burnt, our sheds containing our plant and equipment and so much more. The fire was devastating, but like most things in life there has been so much good to have come out of the fire. We could only look at it as an opportunity to do things better, to make the most of the clean slate we were handed.
