As the birthplace of wine in South Australia, McLaren Vale's viticultural origins began in the 1800's with many of the region's first families of wine still running their multi-generational businesses today.

With a long and interesting history of winemaking and innovation, family histories have become a rich part of our regional story-telling.

Wineries with multigenerational stories include Oliver's Taranga, d'Arenberg, Kay Brothers, Chalk Hill Wines, Hugh Hamilton, Coriole, Maxwell Wines, Angove - many of whom are now fifth and sixth generation vignerons.

In celebration of these multigenerational stories, years of community service and the identities that love to share their special part of the world, a video was commissioned to celebrate the region's evolution and community comraderie, as told by some of our most iconic personalities.
