Step Rd source fruit from the finest vineyards in South Australia. The classic combination of high altitudes in Adelaide Hills, 400-500m above sea level, high winter rainfall and cool summers, produce fruit of supreme quality. Shallow, shaly soils, washed by centuries of rainfall, ensure low yielding vines, with intensely flavoured fruit. Long, cool ripening periods, with night-time temperatures as low as 3-4°C, allow fruit flavours to develop and concentrate to their optimum level. Showing elegance and finesse, undoubtedly this region produces some of Australia’s finest white table wines.

The Step Rd winery was built with dual goals, wine quality and environment protection. A 5,000 tonne winery its layout and operation were designed for efficiency and resource, and to be mindful of the occupational health and welfare of the staff, and the environment. All liquid waste is stored in plastic-lined dams to prevent seepage into the precious water table, before being treated to remove damaging chemicals and salinity, then recycled as irrigation on the vineyard.

Similarly, all solid waste of skins, stalks and seeds are mulched and returned to the vineyard to enhance and improve the soil, as well as reducing the irrigation requirement by up to 25%. Step Rd Winery is not only the pinnacle of winemaking quality but is at the forefront in the conservation of the environment and that extremely valuable and diminishing resource, clean water.
