As in all granite areas the soils in this region are sandy and often have low fertility, thus providing a basis for successful viticulture. Modern viticulture in the region was pioneered by the Plunkett family and by Dr Peter Tisdall who established the Mount Helen Vineyard. Several new wineries have been established over the past decade or so.
There are quite a number of large vineyards which provide fruit to wineries outside the region, for example Domain Chandon uses cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from this region for its sparkling wines. No doubt we will be hearing more about this region in the future.
