We reckon most things in life are better when they’re shared.

At our place, that’s done over the table - loaded with backyard produce, a bottle or two of good wine and surrounded by family and friends.

It might be our Greek heritage that inspired us to work the land. Since leaving more than 60 years ago Chris, with his wife Fran, has worked the Terra Rossa soils of Coonawarra, growing tomatoes, lettuces and strawberries before Steven joined his parents in the family business, together planting vines in 1990.

Our two sites feature both the young and the old; regional classics Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot along with Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris.

Through the winter months, the vines share our land with a small trip of goats who maintain the rows, doing their bit to contribute to our micro-climate.

2 lemon trees, 20 apple trees, 300 strawberry plants, 200 bushes of oregano and whatever else Chris has decided to grow on any given day, share the space with our cellar door.

Come visit us and you might chance upon Chris offering up the backyard’s latest bounty or you’ll find us, Steven and Emma Raidis, at the table, glass in hand, ready to share a story or two.

  • Lovely cellar door located in the township of Penola. A great range of wines and fantastic staff. Loved the art work on the walls by a local artist. Well worth a visit. If you need a nibble you can build your own platter with locally made produce and sit in front of the fire and enjoy a glass of wine.
  • Being a Wine enthusiast and learner, I loved my experience at Raidis Estate. Wines were beautiful and served by winemaker and Owner ( Steven ) . Loved the 2016 Billy Cab Sav.
