    Springs Road Kangaroo Island

    Springs Road Kangaroo Island

    Springs Road runs East-West across the Northern part of Kangaroo Island, South Australia. Spring Road vineyard was established in 1994 on a small sheep property about 7km west of Kingscote.

    Springs Road Wines is owned and operated by Joch Bosworth and Louise Hemsley-Smith from McLaren Vale’s Battle of Bosworth wines.

    Wines are 100% estate-grown and hand-made from the low-yielding vines which are now well over 20 years old.

    The Springs Road wine label is adapted from Louis Freycinet’s 1808 map of Southern Australia ‘Terre Napoléon.’

    We make small volumes of Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and a Cabernet Sauvignon/ Shiraz blend.

    Their Kangaroo Island wines are available at their cellar door (and online) located off Springs Road but accessed opposite 761 Playford Highway (just up from Frog and Roses Cafe), in Cygnet River.
