Adinfern Estate Wines

Farming has long been a tradition for the Smith family, and today at Adinfern Estate that tradition remains strong. Flocks of sheep have been replaced by g rape vines, and the family packs pallets of wine instead of bales of wool. With 40 acres of vineyard grown using minimal spraying, Adinfern Estate produces premium dry white and red wines along with a range of sweeter, sparkling and fortified wines.

Merv and Jan Smith, along with their son Ian, continue to work the land that has been in the Smith family for over sixty years. The farm is still home to traditional farm animals, with sheep grazing in the vineyard keeping down the grass and ducks waddling their way through the sea of vines making a meal out of any insects they might find.

With a history of traditional agriculture as producers of prime lamb, the family is now proud of the awards they have received from around Australia for their premium wines. Overlooking Adinfern Estate stands the original group settlement cottage, for this is old farming country.

Group settlers arrived in the 1920s, transforming the heavily timbered land to dairy farms, however with the harsh conditions that they were unprepared for, many walked off the land hungry and penniless. Others, like Merv’s parents who moved to the region several decades later, endured the hardships of farming life running dairy cattle for milk and cream, and sheep for meat and wool. At Adinfern Estate the old world meets the new; from wool to wine, the Smith family tradition continues.
