Willunga 100 takes great pride in its award-winning McLaren Vale wines.
McLaren Vale has great geological diversity from sub-region to sub-region, and the soils are among the oldest in the world estimated at over 500 million years. This, along with the mediterranean climate and old vines, combine to produce low yields and stunning, concentrated fruit.
The name Willunga 100 comes from the historic ‘Hundred' of Willunga that was established in 1839, only three years after the settlement of South Australia. At the time, 100 households were needed to occupy an area in order to qualify for a place on the map, this was called a ‘Hundred'. Today, the Hundred of Willunga is where much of the winery's fruit comes from.
The tree featured on Willunga 100 bottles is an old River Red Gum that stands tall over the vineyards. It was well over a hundred years old when the first vines were planted in Australia in the 1840s.
