Wicks Estate is a family owned and operated wine company producing premium wines in the Adelaide Hills, one of Australia's premier cool climate wine growing regions. The Wicks family has a long history of involvement in agriculture in the region, originally operating an orchard and nursery at Highbury before the establishment of the Woodside vineyard and winery. In late 1999 the 54 hectare property at Woodside was chosen for its unique aspects and diversity of terrain. Today, Wicks Estate is gaining a reputation as the rising superstar of the Adelaide Hills. Tim and Simon Wicks, with winemaker Leigh Ratzmer are crafting stylish, elegant cool climate wines.
