Our Facilities

facilitiesThe majority of the families' land holdings were sold between 1988 and 1992 due to the oversupply in Australia of specific varieties of fruit. Since then they have had the luxury of sourcing fruit from the best wine growing regions in Australia.

Fruit is sourced from the Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills, Adelaide Plains and Murrayland regions in South Australia. Long-standing family arrangements with local growers have guaranteed significant quantities of quality fruit.

Until recently, the majority of this fruit had been purchased by larger corporate wine companies to form the basis of major brands sold around the world.

Frank Nardone believes the success of Nardone Baker Wines rests on the network of relationships we have developed with key suppliers such as Boar's Rock, the processing facility selected as the company's key wine making facility.

Nestled amid the rolling hills and vineyards of McLaren Vale in South Australia's Fleurieu region, Boar's Rock boasts state-of-the-art operational, production and reporting procedures to ensure first class handling and storage of Nardone Baker wines.

The experienced team at the helm of Boar's Rock has been involved in the development of such major brands as Seaview, Wynns, Lindemans and Penfolds - it is the selection of such high calibre partners that separates Nardone Baker Wines from many other family owned wine companies.
