King River Estate was established in 1990 after Trevor Knaggs and his Father Colin planted vines on the Estate. Traditional French varieties were planted first but now there are also alternative varieties. The varities are; Pinot Gris, Vermentino, Viognier, Chardonnay, Merlot, Shiraz, Sangiovese, Barbera, Sagantino, Lagrein, Saperavi. The vineyard is run using Biodynamic practices which makes the estate sustainable and preserves the land for future generations. The winery uses minimal intervention in the winemaking process which uses wild yeast (natural ferments) allowing the wine to show its true personality. The winery, cellar door and fully self contained guesthouse (which sleeps nine) is located directly across the road from the beautiful crystal clear flowing water of the King River where you can catch fresh fish, such as Cod and Trout, when in season.
