Garry's family has lived on Kangaroo Island for three generations, farming high quality beef cattle and lambs. Garry and Gael are now also producing their own boutique medal winning wines.
The fruit is all hand selected and picked, ensuring that only the best quality fruit reaches the bottle at Rookery Wines.
Garry and Gael Lovering have established 3.2ha of cabernet sauvignon and 1.6ha of shiraz, with smaller plantings of sauvignon blanc, tempranillo, saperavi, sangiovese, chardonnay, merlot, petit verdot, riesling and zinfandel.
Their wine is a bottled ambassador for one of the most beautiful, pristine and isolated environments in Australia and some would say the world. Making the most of this maritime environment we grow fruit that is rich and robust with intense aromas and full flavours, that is handcrafted into exceptional wine.
Kangaroo Island is located 15 kms from the mainland of South Australia, a place of genuine magic with its aquatic life, amazing coastline sculpture, wild flowers and prolific native fauna.
