Wehl's Mount Benson Vineyards was the first established vineyard (1989) in the fantastic Mount Benson Wine Region which was planted and run by the Wehl family. Nestled 2 kilometers inland from the Great Southern Ocean on the Western coast stretches of the famous Limestone Coast of Southern South Australia. The popular tourist Mecca of Robe Township is only a short 15 minute drive to the south.

The fantastic Mediterranean climate aided by the limestone filtered spring water and ancient coastal soils lends itself brilliantly to growing and ripening some of Australia's most popular varieties.

A number of viticultural challenges have been met and overcome by the use of local weather knowledge as the Wehl family were long time fisherpeople.Fishing for the famous Southern Rock Lobster and various other seafood along the nutrient rich coast. Fed by the deep cool waters rising from the depths beyond the Australian Continental Shelf which skirts the coast only 20 nautical miles out to sea. Wine and grape growing is now the family passion and has been for nearly 20 years.

The Wehl's are people comfortable in their surrounds of coast to the West, the Woakwine Ranges a kilometer to the East and house and cellar door surrounded be expansive lawns with hand reared orphaned native animals roaming freely sharing, but mostly providing ambience.
