Langhorne Creek is on the Fleurieu Peninsula of South Australia, 70km from Adelaide. The region is located between the Adelaide Hills and Lake Alexandrina.
It is considered a cool climate wine region, with mean January temperature of 19.9°C days. Significantly cooler than McLaren Vale 21.7°C and the Barossa at 21.4°C. This is thanks to the southerly breeze coming off Lake Alexandrina cooling, often referred to as the 'Lake Doctor'. The lake is a 600 square kilometre body of fresh water, at the end of the Murray Darling River system. 3 times the size of Sydney Harbour!
The influence it has to the regions climate is dramatic; it moderates summer heat and mitigates winter frosts.
Langhorne Creek’s fertile soils are predominantly deep, alluvial sandy loams that vary in colour from red-brown to dark grey, with patches of black, self-mulching clays.
Home to many wineries including Bleasdale, Bremerton, and Lake Breeze.
