Paracombe is family owned and operated by the Drogemuller family. It is located in the Adelaide Hills South Australia on an ancient plateau with 1.7-billion-year-old soil and 425 meters (~1400 ft) above sea level. The soils are layered with ironstone, buckshot gravel and quartz, a deeply historic remnant from an ancient riverbed with life giving, underground spring water. The vines grow deep and draw up minerals which along with minimal irrigation contribute a strong influence in wine style and flavor. The climate is cool with warm sunshine during the day and dropped temperatures at night help produce superb fruit flavor, well balanced with natural acid. These factors provide the ability to produce a wonderful range of fine wine.
The Drogemuller’s care deeply about the environment, carefully managing the vineyards and wine production to be sustainable with nature and use organic growing practices.
