Mount Benson

Mount Benson is the only sub-wine region actually located on the coast. The first vines were planted around two decades ago, and the region is still revealing its true colours. The large venture, Norfolk Rise (Lot 102, Limestone Coast Rd, Mount Benson, (08) 8768 5080), established by an international company, indicates the area’s promise. Try the Norfolk Rise shiraz. Other wineries to visit are Wehl’s Mt Benson Vineyards (Wrights Bay Rd, Mount Benson, (08) 8768 6251), Cape Jaffa Wines (Limestone Coast Rd, Mount Benson via Robe, (08) 8768 5053) and Ralph Fowler Wines (101 Limestone Coast Rd, Mount Benson, (08) 8768 5000), which is also the cellar door for Frog Island, inland from Robe.
