READ ABOUT Mr. Riggs Winery...

Ben Riggs spent 21 vintages at Wirra Wirra winery, predominately as the winemaker, before deciding to bring to life his vision of his own label. And experience shows in the wines – the red wines particularly display unusual balance for their big, rich frames, something that many producers fail to achieve. White wine does tend to be an after thought, though the Adelaide Hills Riesling is set at a cunning and delicious off-dry level. The headlining Mr Riggs Shiraz is a whopper, but appealing in its muscularity and density.

A cellar door is located in McLaren Vale, sharing the space with Penny’s Hill wines. Vineyard sites a predominately located in McLaren Vale, but fruit is also sourced from Adelaide Hills and Langhorne Creek.

Mr Riggs Winery

The winery, as shared with Penny’s Hill, utilises the best of Ben Riggs broad winery knowledge with new oak, stainless steel and modern technique, though Riggs does draw on his vast European wine making experience to fine tune wines and imbue additional character.
