Monterra is a brand split across the Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale. Mike Farmilo is the winemaker here, former maker of Penfolds Grange and twice winner of the Jimmy Watson trophy. Brad Rey is also heavily involved (Zonte’s Footstep). The quality of the reds is superb, as the medal cabinet attests.
