History of Caudo

What makes Caudo so unique?

Firstly, our steadfast commitment to preserving the river and surrounding wildlife.

Our vineyard is a rich abundance of Australian wildlife, from kangaroos who nibble on our lush, green lawns to the countless flocks of native bird species that make their home in the giant River Red Gums adorning our riverfront.

The river itself, a 60-million-year-old water source, supports a plethora of fish, frogs and other species, and therefore maintaining the ecological balance is imperative.

As modern-day Vignerons, Caudo Vineyard has drawn on the expertise of world leaders in dryland agriculture. We have adopted many of their techniques, to maximise efficiency and minimise wastage, to ensure the environment continues to thrive. State of the art technology, coupled with a premium growing location, minimises the threat of disease and allows Caudo to produce wines of exceptional quality year after year.

Caudo is committed to maintaining a haven for the local wildlife, as well as preserving and respecting the River Murray so that future generations may also draw enjoyment from it years from now.

In addition, Caudo Vineyard is respectful of its rich history.

Originally, the property was established in the late 1800s, and became a successful rose farm.

We continue to celebrate the history of the property by naming the wines after the varieties of roses that were grown there, including Peace Chardonnay, Honour Shiraz, and Olympiad Merlot.

The preservation of the land’s history is of the utmost importance to Caudo Vineyard.

Everything from our logo, wines, beer, vineyard block names, original buildings, and monuments erected are to share and remember stories of the past.

Finally, Caudo Vineyard’s commitment to excellence in everything we do.

Regretfully due to the damage we received to our grounds and buildings from the 2022 River Murray floods, our Cellar door is now PERMANENTLY CLOSED.

But don’t be dismayed….
