Braydun Hill Vineyard is an 8ha property next to the Onkaparinga Gorge National Park, with spectacular views overlooking South Australia's McLaren Vale to the south and the Onkaparinga estuary and the ocean to the west. .

For many generations, Braydun Hill has been used as a grazing property, for cattle, sheep and angora goats. The ideal grape growing position led to the decision to plant the vineyard in the mid 1990s, and in 1998 the first vines were planted. The decision was made at the time to aim to produce top quality grapes from the Shiraz variety which traditionally has been used to make the very best full bodied red wine.

Combining the tradition of grazing and grape growing, Carol and Tony (the owners of Braydun Hill) move their sheep into the vineyard straight after vintage where they stay until budburst in the spring. Permanent pasture between the rows provides good feed, and in return the sheep provide natural fertiliser for the vines.
