Doing a little good with every glass you pour.

Kimbolton Wine’s director Nicole Clark always thought wine could be a force for good. Her family loves animals and are frequent visitors to Monarto Safari Park, so in 2021 she approached us about joining forces.

In 2021, Kimbolton Wines released what is now known as ‘The Cheetah wine’, a 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon raising funds for vital cheetah conservation. Cheetah, like more than 70% of species at Monarto Safari Park, are threatened with extinction in the wild. For each bottle sold Kimbolton Wines donates part of the proceeds towards saving cheetah in their natural habitat.

Now, Zoos SA is proud to partner with five additional wineries from the Langhorne Creek region as part of the ‘Grapes for good’ initiative. Kimbolton Wines, Bleasdale, Bremerton, Lake Breeze, The Winehouse and Vineyard Road wineries have come together to create a unique mix of wines to further support our conservation efforts with part proceeds from the sale of these wines supporting Zoos SA’s conservation mission.

‘Grapes for good’ is proof that wine can be a force for good. Every drop can go a little further and make a real difference.

If you care about animals and you love wine, there’s never been a more exciting time to visit our six winery partners based in Langhorne Creek to grab a bottle of our limited-edition ‘Grapes for good’ wines.

With more than 70% of the species at Monarto Safari Park threatened with extinction in the wild, your support is vital and keeps the fight to save these species from extinction alive.

Bleasdale Wines - Zebra - Grapes for Good bottle

Bleasdale

Mulberry Tree Cabernet Sauvignon
For many, the name Mulberry Tree is synonymous with Bleasdale. Named after the century-old mulberry tree in the vineyard, this is an ever reliable Cabernet Sauvignon with aromas of mixed berries, dark chocolate and violets, finishing with soft and subtle tannins.

Supporting the Plains Zebra

With numbers decreasing in the wild, the Plains Zebras could soon be in a ‘stripe’ of trouble.
As Langhorne Creek’s founding winery with over 170 years of history, Bleasdale is proud to be partnering with Monarto Safari Park and Zoos SA to contribute to help save Plains Zebra from extinction.

Bremerton Wines - Lemur - Grapes for Good bottle

Bremerton Wines

Mollie & Merle Verdelho
Verdelho is perfectly suited to our region’s climate and growing conditions. We chose to make a fresh, vibrant style expressing the pure varietal characters.

Cute they may be, but Ring-tailed Lemurs are in deep trouble in the wild. Classified as endangered with habitat loss and poaching the biggest threats to the wild population, Bremerton Wines is proud to support Monarto Safari Park and Zoos SA to help Ring-tailed Lemurs stay a leap ahead of extinction!

Kimbolton Wines - Giraffe- Grapes for Good bottle

Fiano
An ancient Italian wine grape variety, well suited to the growing conditions in Langhorne Creek.
This Fiano shows crisp, citrus characters with delicious fresh pear, honey hints and a rich texture on the palate. Drink now either on its own, with fresh seafood or a delicious goats cheese tart.

Supporting the giraffe

The gentle giants of the savannah, giraffes need our help! With less than 70,000 estimated to roam their home in Africa these animals are at risk of extinction. The population decline has been referred to as a ‘Silent Extinction’. That’s why Kimbolton Wines are joining forces with Monarto Safari Park and Zoos SA to stop the silent extinction and raise funds for giraffe conservation before it’s too late.
