VINEYARD 

The ‘Wyebo’ vineyard is in Oakbank in the Adelaide Hills. Wyebo is an Aboriginal word meaning ‘small’. Leo O'Leary (David's Grandfather) purchased the property in 1912 and it continues to remain in the family to this day. The high altitude and cool nights in the Adelaide Hills are ideal for slow and even ripening producing wines with character and purity of fruit. The soils are red loam over quartz and schist, ensuring they are well drained, giving consistency and balance for the vine.
