READ ABOUT Cascabel Winery...

Based at the southern end of McLaren Vale, on the slopes of the Sellicks Hill Range, Cascabel takes its name for a small Spanish bell, symbolic of festivity, and good times.

Established in 1997 with plantings of southern Rhone and Spanish grape varieties, Cascabel is owned and operated by husband and wife team Duncan Ferguson and Susana Fernandez. Susana’s Spanish heritage has seen this couple put considerable effort into their plantings of Spanish varietals, which have produced some particularly fine Tempranillo, Graciano and Monastrell.

Cascabel Philosophy

Each Cascabel wine is a reflection of variety and soil with an essence of the winemaker’s personality thrown in.

Cascabel Winemaking

From crushing the grapes to the bottling process, all winemaking takes place at Cascabel’s winery. The emphasis is on European winemaking techniques using grapes that are handpicked, dry grown and from low yielding vines.

The quality of the wine can in part be attributed to the wide range of winemaking experience undertaken by Duncan and Susana including time in the Rhone Valley and Bordeaux in France, Germany’s Mosel Region, Trentino in Sicily and parts of New Zealand.

Cascabel Wine Types

Cascabel wines maintain a definite Spanish influence with varieties such as Temparnillo, Monastrell, Graciano, Grenache and Carinena grown. French varieties complement the range, including Roussane, Viognier, Shiraz and Cinsault.
