Mr. Riggs Wine Co.
OverviewMr Riggs was founded in 2001 by winemaker Ben Riggs. The winery is positioned at the premium end of the ladder, using Ben's extensive contacts with growers to cherry pick fruit from Adelaide Hills, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale, among other sites.
Mr. Riggs' winemaking philosophy is to make unpretentious wines that express the essence of the vineyard and the region's terroir in a style that Ben enjoys drinking; big, rich and complex, but also with finesse, texture and elegance, the latter not necessarily being traits Ben possesses.
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.
