The Tweddell family bought a lush, premium property in Adelaide Hills’ Lenswood region in the year 1994. It was planted with high - quality grapevines of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Zinfandel covering 24 hectares of the land. In the year 1996, they received approval to establish their winery. Thus, the second winery of Adelaide Hills, Nepenthe Wines was founded. Nepenthe started producing elegant, flavoursome and marvellous wines of superior quality and intense flavours, which received profound appraisal from critics and consumers alike. These wines captured the varietal and regional characters magnificently, able to paint lovely pictures of Adelaide Hills into the minds of the wine - drinkers. In its first few vintages, Nepenthe was featured in the ‘Top 100’ lists of The UK Time, James Halliday, The International Wine Challenger and The Advertiser. Nepenthe sells nationally as well as internationally, exporting to countries like Hong Kong, Malaysia, Switzerland, Canada, Denmark, Holland and Sweden.
