Silos Estate: Cellar Door Tour


Silo's Cellar Door


Tracing its history back to 1870, Silos Estate has been producing a range of premium wines that emphasise the unique characteristics of the Shoalhaven region while its Wileys Creek label sources fruit from other wine growing regions in Australia.

Situated between the mountains and the coast, approximately 12 acres of vineyard have been planted with seven varieties of grapes: Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec which are sold under Silos Estate brand.  The vineyard is not irrigated, taking full advantage of the local maritime Shoalhaven climate, with cool, moderate, sea breezes during the ripening period, allowing the grapes’ entire characters to fully develop.

Silos Estate produces a limited quantity of wines from hand pruned and picked vines.  After harvest all grapes are pressed, fermented in stainless steel vats and matured in vats or oak casks.  Our range of vine holdings are scattered across the ridges and flats of the property ensuring that the final product is truly unique.

In 2007 Wileys Creek was launched to introduce to the Shoalhaven grape varietals from other regions.  Currently the Estate sources fruit from other iconic wine growing regions including Yarra Valley (Victoria); Tumburumba and Hunter Valley (N.S.W); Adelaide Hills and Coonawarra (South Australia) and retails (in addition to the varietals listed above) Guwertztraminer; Riesling; Muscat and Pinot.
