Foggo Wines is a small family-owned winery and cellar door making fine wine from some of the oldest vines in the South Australian McLaren Vale region.

Despite the relatively new name, Foggo Wines has a long and interesting past. The main vineyard was originally planted by prominent regional growers, the Foggo family, in 1915. The winemaking brand was established in 1987 as Curtis Wines, but renamed Foggo Wines by its new owners Herb and Sandie Van De Wiel.

The husband and wife team are second-generation viticulturists from McLaren Vale. For more than two decades they had supplied high profile labels such as Noon, Rosemount and Kangarilla. The Van De Wiels know a thing or two about prime turf. So when they'd set their sights on the striking old, gnarled vines at Foggos Road, they decided to buy up and give winemaking a go.

The Van De Wiels believe their hands-on role from grape-growing to winemaking gives Foggo Wines a quality assurance tick: 'By managing the entire process we are able to maintain the integrity of the brand,' says Herb.
