It’s hard to believe how far and fast Kilikanoon has risen since being established in 1997 with 14 acres of vines. In 2002 Kilikanoon won 6 of the 7 available Trophies at the Clare Valley wine show. In 2013 James Halliday named Kilikanoon as his winery of the year. Today Kilikanoon has over 700 acres of vines, and sources additional fruit from some of the best growers in the Barossa Valley, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale.

130km north of Adelaide (and west of the Barossa), the Clare Valley sits within a high-altitude pocket granting the vineyards cool to cold nights with long, warm to hot summer days.

There are several sub-regions in the 35km stretch of valley, pocketed with varying soils, altitudes and climates. West-facing, high-altitude slopes benefit from drying afternoon sun in summer, producing some of the regions best vintages. The vines are planted from 400 to 500 metres (1,300 to 1,600 ft). The higher altitude, compared to other wine regions in South Australia, ensures cool nights even during the heat of summer allowing the fruit to ripen more evenly and slowly. Soil is a mix of red to brown-grey over basement rock.
