Mike Press Wines, located in the internationally acclaimed wine region of Adelaide Hills in South Australia, sets the benchmark for quality wine at an outstanding price.
With a string of awards, the secret to its success lies in a nurtured vineyard,more than four decades of experience, and a commitment to the consumer.
Mike Press started his career with the best, working alongside Max Schubert at Penfolds before moving to Seppelts, and as chief wine maker for Mildara Bass, before planting his vineyard in 1998 to focus on growing quality grapes to on-sell.
Boasting 85 acres of scenic beauty, Kenton Valley Vineyards, was chosen because of its cool climate,its altitude of 500 metres above sea level, and its rainfall,which is similar to Bordeaux in France.
Reviews by the likes of Tyson Stelzer and Campbell Mattinson, led to the wine continually selling out, and in 2008 its Shiraz was bestowed the highest rated wine under $20 at the Edinburgh Great Shiraz Challenge.
In 2009 it was the only 1single1 vineyard in Australia to have three wines in James Halliday's highly acclaimed top 100 wines with its 2008 Chardonnay, 2008 Cabernet and 2008 Shiraz.
In 2010it was listed in James Halliday's top 10 wines for the year; and this year, was named a five star winery in the 2011 edition of James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion.
