Bleasdale Vineyards

Website: www.bleasdale.com.au (opens a new window)

The historic Bleasdale vineyards were founded in 1850 by Frank Potts, who arrived in South Australia from Portsmouth, England in 1836. Potts spotted the potential of the rich alluvial soils of the area and the impact of the Bremer River on which the isolated, tiny town of Langhorne Creek region depends for flood irrigation. His sons and grandsons operated and built up the winery, and Bleasdale is now solely owned and run by fourth and fifth generation members of the Potts family. Their property, much of which enjoys conservation status, offers a fascinating insight into the history of Australia’s early settlers.

The cellars at Bleasdale are a national monument, constructed from red gumwood and limestone, and some of the original winemaking equipment is still occasionally used. Nevertheless, the emphasis here is on using modern technology to produce wines of consistently high quality. Until the 1990s much of the region’s fruit went into multi-regional blends and it was only when a group of long-term family growers – including Bleasdale – started promoting 100% Langhorne Creek wines that the region became recognised in its own right.

We are proud that The Society’s Spicy Australian Red, a robust and generous blend, true to the Bleasdale spirit, originates from these family vineyards. ...Show Less

"Was not sure what to expect when I ordered this, what a great find, fruity and extremely moreish, loved it and will certainly be keeping stock of this...can't wait to sit out in the sun and drink this one!"

Mr Graeme Grady (28-Apr-2013)


"Very smooth to drink, this wine was drunk on a sunny afternoon/early evening and went down a treat. I found it very more-ish and indeed was glad I had ordered more than the one bottle."

Mr John Cartwright (25-Jul-2012)


"Gorgeous wine! We usually buy the Jacobs Creek sparkling shiraz (from a well known supermarket) which we enjoy; but we were pleased to find that the Bleasdale is far superior. Smooth and easy to drink! We will definitely order more."

Mr Najam Asghar (06-Dec-2011)


"This is a sublime wine perfect for a summer's barbeque or as a substitute for champagne in terms of a celebratory sparkler!"

Mr Christopher Hall (30-Dec-2009)
