Brackenwood Vineyard was purchased by Damon Nagel in 2003, after first being planted in 1998. It is a 60 Acre property with 18.5 acres under vine and 15 acres of native scrub. It is situated 360m to 410m above sea level with an average rainfall of 1000ml per annum giving the vineyard the second wettest sub-region and the second coldest sub-region in Adelaide Hills.

The soil profile is made up of Iron Stone & Quartz and was originally planted to Shiraz and Cabernet, with Cabernet being grafted early to Riesling. The vineyard is now planted out with Riesling, Barbera, Gamay, Shiraz, Nebbiolo, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc.

The vineyard was converted to Biodynamic practices in 2010. All Brackenwood wines are produced without the addition of acid or yeast nutrients, all ferments relying on wild yeast and bio dynamically farmed estate grapes.

While Brackenwood wholeheartedly believe in the biodynamic winemaking philosophy, the real benefit has to be in the enjoyment of the wines themselves.
Using biodynamic principles allows Brackenwood to capture regional character and vintage variation. This comes from handpicking grapes in small batches, which are then wild fermented using the vineyard’s indigenous yeasts. Maturation takes place in French and Hungarian oak barriques and minimal filtration allows our wines to develop to their full potential.
