On the outskirts of Gumeracha, amongst the Adelaide Hills, the Chain of Ponds winery was established in 1985 on soils that have housed vineyards since Australia’s early colonial days.
Grapes were originally planted on a small block to test the suitability of various grape varieties in what was then an emerging cool climate region. Today, young winemaker Greg Clack along with the Chain of Ponds team, pride themselves on producing ‘quality wines with a difference’, using the best fruit from the best vineyards in the Adelaide Hills.
The Chain of Ponds Name
Chain of Ponds takes its name from the nearby township and a creek that ran from Kersbrook to the River Torrens in South Australia, around 1918. Until quite recently, the region was dotted with small chain-like ponds that never dried up even during hot, dry summers. Although most of the waterholes have since disappeared, the memory of them and their namesake live on.
Chain of Ponds Wine Types
Chain of Ponds is dedicated to producing wines that showcase its cool Adelaide Hills origins. As a consequence only grape varieties that suit such climate have been planted including white varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay. The red selection encompasses Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon as well as Sangiovese, Pinot Noir, Barbera and Nebbiolo.
Chain of Ponds Wine Range
The Chain of Ponds portfolio includes the following brands: Icon Series, Novello, Pilot Block, Ponds Series, Tribute Series and Cachet.

This Cabernet is not named after Mozart but it’s a fine and harmonious orchestration of flavours that hums an elegiac tune. The Adelaide Hills is not famed for this variety but this wine makes a convincing argument for why it should be taken more ...
