The Possums Vineyards were established by Dr John Possingham and Carol Summers in 1984. The grapes harvested from Blewitt Springs were sold to neighbouring winemakers in the McLaren Vale wine region. The first Possums Vineyard Shiraz wine was made in 2000 and became popular with wine critics both in Australia, U.K and the U.S.A. using contract winemaking facilities. Construction of the Possums Winery began in 2004 at Blewitt Springs, the same year the Trophy winning Possums Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was created.

Historically speaking...

This particular full bodied white wine varietal retains a strong association with the Northern Rhône Valley in France; Condrieu to be more specific, where it is the only permitted white wine grape for this region.
