Willunga 100, take great pride in their award-winning McLaren Vale wines. The small and passionate team have created an exciting and vibrant range that truly showcases the magic of the region.

Before their first vintage in 2005, they explored the region and came across plots of 50-year-old Grenache vines. At the time, most Grenache was destined for blending. They decided this had to change, so they made these vines their focus and gave them the attention they deserved.

McLaren Vale has great geological diversity from sub-region to sub-region, and the soils are among the oldest in the world estimated at over 500 million years. This, along with the mediterranean climate and old vines, combine to produce low yields and stunning, concentrated fruit.

Willunga 100 take their name from the historic ‘Hundred’ of Willunga that was established in 1839, only three years after the settlement of South Australia. At the time, 100 households were needed to occupy an area in order to qualify for a place on the map, this was called a ‘Hundred’. Today, the Hundred of Willunga is where much of the winery's fruit comes from.

The tree featured on the bottles is an old River Red Gum that stands tall over the vineyards. It was well over a hundred years old when the first vines were planted in Australia in the 1840’s.
