Dogridge Vineyards is a family owned venture built up since the first vines were purchased in 1992 by Dave and Jen Wright. They produce a range of boutique wines from their 120 acres of premium McLaren Vale vineyards.

Dogridge is the name of an old-fashioned vine rootstock and strangely it caught
their imagination. Given the main house is on a ridge overlooking the vines, and they are besotted with Curly Coated Retrievers you can figure it out.

So, Dogridge it is, a shared dream that includes art, an intimate cellar door and gallery, heritage vines and, above all, a commitment to distinctive wines that celebrate the beauty around them.

The Cellar Door at DogRidge is not the impersonal big winery tasting, it is as comfortable as the kitchen table but with the best Riedel glassware and the gentle hospitality of their cellar door queen, Jo Thompson.

There is Jen’s fresh baked sour dough bread and fantastic local olive oil to taste and perk up the palate and Dave’s hand-crafted refectory table to sit around while Jo presents theirwines. Jo knows them intimately and is a mine of knowledge about the other wines and personalities of the district.

Tables and chairs outside under the gum trees beside the creek cater for picnics with friends and family. They can also turn out a passable espresso when the need arises.
