The Pioneer Road story reflects the transition of Langhorne Creek from a primarily farming and horticultural area south of Adelaide, to one of South Australia’s major wine producing regions. Pioneer Road pays homage to a bygone era, before the region’s idyllic grape growing conditions were fully realised. The region’s wine industry was born in the 1860s, however its presence was overshadowed by other agricultural ventures such as dairy, fruit, wheat and beef. It was a century after the first grapes were planted that Langhorne Creek’s prominence as a grape growing and wine producing region became recognised by winemakers and wine writers.
Over the last two decades, the area under vines has expanded rapidly and, while retaining its unique sense of history, “The Creek” has become recognised for producing consistent and affordable, quality wines.
Project Wine has partnered with two of Langhorne Creek’s most experienced independent growers to source the fruit for the Pioneer Road range.
Pioneer Road works with growers to select specific premium vineyard sites, selectively prune and harvest them at optimum flavour ripeness, and have the fruit delivered to the Winery within 15 minutes.
Pioneer Road offers a selection of varietal wines, which carry the hallmarks for which Langhorne Creek has become renowned – consistent quality wines that offer varietal definition, fruit generosity and great value for money
