Padthaway is about a thirty minute drive south of Keith. It’s close to the Coonawarra, Wrattonbully and Mount Benson wine regions. Rows of vineyards thread down either side of the Riddoch Highway.
Padthaway, like many South Australian wine regions, has a warm climate and good rainfall. Its terra rossa soil gives grapes a special flavour, due to limestone layers. This produces wine with great flavour and intensity. Grape vines span more than 62 kilometres of land.
Padthaway has a cluster of small shops located in the heart of town, with a park, playground and skate park.
There are a couple of cellar doors in the region, where you can taste the renowned Padthaway Shiraz and Chardonnay. These are Henry’s Drive Cellar Door and Padthaway Estate Cellar Door. The Padthaway General Store Bottle Shop is fully stocked with the beautiful local “drop”.
While you’re here, explore Padthaway Conservation Park or play a round of golf at Padthaway Golf Course.
Padthaway, there’s great wine and plenty to explore.
