Paracombe Shiraz is an outstanding award-winning Shiraz handcrafted by Paul and Kathy Drogemuller high in the picturesque Adelaide Hills. Rich and concentrated with layers of cherry and plum fruit, spice, hints of dark chocolate and subtle oak.
The remarkable Paracombe wines story started in 1983 following the Ash Wednesday bushfires when Paul and Kathy Drogemuller bought an old dairy farm at Paracombe in the Adelaide Hills in South Australia. With no background or experience in grape growing or winemaking, they planted a vineyard and so began their dream.
In typical Australian style, they started making wine in a tin shed with a couple of old milk tanks, a small crusher and home built basket press. Paracombe Wines was launched in 1992.
Together with hard work, passion and vision Paul and Kathy expanded the vineyard, designed and built a winery with facility to crush up to 2000 tonnes of fruit, underground cellars and stunning cellar door. Son Ben works in the family business and daughter Sarah in hospitality, helping out with events. The Drogemuller family and Paracombe’s dedicated, dynamic team have worked together to build a very successful, award winning, family business.
Paracombe wines are proudly handcrafted from the beginning to the end, with grape growing, winemaking, storage, packaging and distribution all done on site ensuring complete care for the production of beautiful wine made to enjoy.
The Paracombe family vineyard and winery is located high on a plateau at Paracombe in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia with spectacular views of the Mount Lofty ranges.
The Drogemuller’s Paracombe vineyard lies 425 metres above sea level. Soil is lean with ironstone, buckshot gravel and quartz, an interesting remnant from an ancient riverbed. These characters along with minimal irrigation contribute a strong influence in wine style and flavour.
Low yields, minimal irrigation and hand cane pruning ensure only the best grape flavour and quality for Paracombe’s premium wines.
