Ege pioneered the production of Mead and sold his crop of wine grapes to some of Australia's most eminent brands before founding his own label in 1971, with the object of converting the high quality fruit into pure, estate made wines. Since establishment, Dennis Wines have collected over 200 medals at national and international wine shows, twice claiming the revered Bushing King awards for best wine at the McLaren Vale Winemakers Exhibition. The tradition continues of producing vintages of the finest quality McLaren Vale wine.
The estate's Nindethana Vineyard is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, and Shiraz, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The property is beautifully situated at McLaren Flat at the base of Mount Lofty Ranges where the soil, climate and rainfall are ideal for the purpose.
