Ulithorne was created in 1950 by Bob Whiting when he planted the first vines that would upon their maturity produce the first Ulithorne wines. The commitment to nurture the individual characters from the vines and present the best that the land can offer in each of the wines, has supported Ulithorne in becoming an iconic South Australian wine brand. The diversity of the wine range demonstrates the diversity of land from which we farm the vines and the characters that each variety exhibits in each individual block.
Today Ulithorne's winemaking focuses on recognising the characteristics of each individual parcel of land – altitude, aspect, temperature, and soil. This leads to small batches of wine that can be hard to find but are always eagerly sought by enthusiasts.
We are confident that those who know and appreciate our wines, share some of our own attributes – the willingness to take time, consider and place important value on origin and authenticity.

Altus: High (Latin)
The Ulithorne Altus range of wines are a new addition to the Ulithorne portolio. This collection of wines from the Adelaide Hills offers varietals that are harvested at peak flavour development, when the vibrancy and perfume of each variety is most expressive.
These wines are bottled while young, fresh, and vibrant and are well suited to early consumption.
The Altus range consists of: Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, Shiraz
DONA & EPOCH
Dona: a gift (Latin)
The 'Dona' collection of wines are a step up from the 'Altus' in terms of winemaking intervention and complexity.
The red grapes are left longer for development on the vines in McLaren Vale, allowing for deeper and richer berry flavours.
Dona range includes: GSM, Shiraz, Shiraz Grenache, Blanc
Epoch: beginning of a new era (Latin)
The 'Epoch' Rosé is sourced from a single vineyard in McLaren Vale, creating more intensity, depth and expression.
NOVA DUO, SPECIALIS, MAGNUM OPUS
Nova Duo: fresh two (Latin)
Specialis: special (Latin)
Magnum Opus: a great work (Latin)
