Waterhouse Range Vineyard
Waterhouse Range Vineyard is situated on 57 Ha (141 acres) in the heart of the Robe Wine Region, some 15km south-east of Robe. Robe is located 340km south east of Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia. This is a part of the overall Limestone Coast zone which also includes other sub-regions such as Coonawarra, Padthaway, Wrattonbully, Mt Benson and Mt Gambier.
The vineyard was conceived by Robe personalities, brothers Bill & Mick Quinlan-Watson, following encouragement from Southcorp Wines. They approached a group of investors and Waterhouse Range was born!
