Mr. Riggs Wine Co. was founded in 2001 by winemaker Ben Riggs, whose winemaking philosophy is to make unpretentious wines that express the essence of the vineyard and the regions terroir, in a style that Ben enjoys drinking; big, rich and complex, but also with finesses, texture and elegance. Ben sources regional parcels of fruit from McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills and the Coonawarra.
“The aim of all Mr. Riggs wines is to express the essence of the vineyard and varieties, in a style that I enjoy drinking.” – Ben Riggs.
Mr. Riggs wines are stamped with Ben’s considerable European experience, as well as his unique vision for wines produced on his hallowed South Australian stomping ground.
