Vineyards

Callipari has approximately 40 hectares of vines planted to specially selected vines.

Each of the cuttings (vines) for the vineyard were taken from selected vineyards that we knew had made outstanding wines. “Good wine is made in the vineyard”

Callipari grow their grapes in two areas of the Murray Darling. The Karkarooc vineyard grows all the red varieties and Nichols Point vineyard grows the white wine varieties.

The Karkarooc vineyard  is planted to; Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Grenache, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The Grenache & Cabernet Franc in the vineyard was first planted in 1995 with the first wine made in 1997. The Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot were planted in 1997 with the first vintage from these vines released in 2000.

The Nichols Point vineyard is the original vineyard owned by the Callipari family, Giuseppe having purchased the property in 1956. The original Sultana & Waltham Cross vineyard was upgraded to Chardonnay in 2001 with the first crush of Chardonnay in 2002.
