Experience Karatta Wines

We are a family business owned by David & Peg Woods, who bought their farm, Griffin Pastoral Company in 1975, some 42 years ago.

Our Winery and Vineyards are located at the family property on the Limestone Coast, just 10 minutes drive from the township centre of Robe on the road towards the Coonawarra, the Robe-Penola Road.

Experience the unique coastal hinterland of the wild Robe region – a windswept landscape that produces wines of subtlety, richness and beauty.

All of our wines, (bar the cheeky Moscato) are Estate Grown and produced.  Watch this space over the next few months for the release of our new “K” Range.

Visit our Tasting Room in the Main Street of Robe, 41b Victoria Street.

Here at Karatta we have 2 options for you:

Option 1 Taste our Karatta House Range, Complimentary

Option 2 Experience our Wildflowers Reds, $10 per head

These four wines are matched with Robe Dairy Labneh, Truffled Limestone Coast Honey & Fennel Tarallini.  The cost of this tasting is waived on purchase of any wines in the Wildflowers Wine Range.

See the Tasting Room page for opening hours and further information.

Learn about the Process

Karatta Wines is situated in the wild coastal hinterland of Robe and have an extensive portfolio of estate grown varietals.  We are committed to the production of ready to drink wines that authentically reflect the maritime climate:  characterised by soft, elegant reds and crisp whites.

The Karatta Wine Company owns 2 vineyards, Tenison and 12 Mile.

“Tenison Vineyard” is located close to our original farm known as “Frog Island”.  This farm has been in the family for over 20 years. Established in 1997, the Tenison Vineyard is named after a family relative and local identity, Father Julian Tenison Woods.  The vineyard is ideally situated on the east facing slopes of the Dairy Range.

“12 Mile Vineyard” was acquired in 2003 in association with the 12 Mile Winery.  This vineyard is exactly 12 miles from Robe via the main road and is near the first camp used by the Chinese whilst trekking from Robe to the Victorian goldfields.

Both have the famous terra rossa soil over limestone.  Being close to the Great Southern Ocean, they also benefit from the maritime climate with long ripening periods.
