About Us

The Watkins family have deep roots in South Australia and entered the wine industry in 1997 when David & Ros Watkins purchased land and planted a vineyard in South Australia. Over the following 22 years the meticulous attention to detail in the vineyard, unwavering adherence to sustainable viticultural practices and contemporary, diverse winemaking techniques allowed the Watkins family to realise their initial goal of becoming a producer of high-end fruit and premium bulk wines.

After perfecting their craft and supplying some of South Australia’s most renowned brands, the new generation of siblings Ben, Sam & Jo were ready to take the reigns. The time felt right to launch a Watkins family branded wine portfolio in 2019. Critical acclaim and accolades have been commonplace from the outset with wine show trophies and accolades from James Suckling, Wine Enthusiast, Halliday Wine Companion and many other leading wine critics.

With a focus on quality, sustainability and organic viticulture, along with a superb range of varietals and wine styles, Watkins are now ready to make their mark on the international wine scene
