Kies – The Taste of Happiness
Tina and Michael Kies opened the cellar door in 1985. Tina remembers the opening well, “it really was just a run down little cottage, once used as a Chaff Mill…”
The little cottage was subsequently renovated, with the help of family and opened in January 1985. The day of the opening was stinking hot (40°c) and there was no air–conditioning; to top it all off Tina was pregnant and nearly due with Bronson, her eldest son…” From 1985 the Kies Family Wines philosophy was “not to get bigger just get better”.
The Kies Family focus has always been on “quality not quantity”. This is why they keep their wine production small so as to keep the quality and its distinctive varietal characters. The Monkey Nut Cafe was added on to the Cellar door, opening in 2006! Now skipping forward a few years, 2020 saw the opening of the brand new state of the art winery!
Walking winery and vineyard tours have been added to the whole Kies experience, so you can learn how their wine is made right from the vines to the bottle!
Every time we share Kies Family Wines with our clients, they remain long term fans of the wines and the people. Now its your turn!
