The Islander Estate Vineyards Pty Ltd


Discover French wine expertise blended with the unique natural environment and maritime grape growing conditions of Kangaroo Island.

The Islander Estate Vineyards was established by renowned Bordeaux winemaker Jacques Lurton after falling love with the natural beauty of Kangaroo Island and recognising the region’s enormous viticultural potential.

The third largest island in Australia, Kangaroo Island offers near perfect growing conditions for wine grapes, including a cool, Mediterranean climate that allows for slow even ripening, significant factors in producing The Islander Estate Wines

Jacques established a modern 70 tonne winery onsite at the vineyard at the heart of the Cygnet Valley in the centre of the Island in 2000. Today The Islander Estate enjoys a 5-star Halliday rating for its outstanding cool climate wines.

Join us at our intimate Wine Tasting Room to experience The Islander Estate range. Centrally located at Cygnet River, take part in a guided tasting before relaxing with your favourite wine on the deck.

The Tasting Room is open 6 days a week (closed Wed) from 12 noon to 5.00pm
