climate The Wrattonbully Wine Region includes wineries along Riddoch Highway between Naracoorte and Wrattonbully and near the towns of Hynam, Apsley, Koppamurra, Struan and Joanna in the Limestone Coast Zone. The Wrattonbully wine region, has a reputation for producing outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz wines. The region includes several ranges including Caves Range, Hynam Range, Stewarts Range, and the Naracoorte Range which is also known as the Kanawinka escarpment. Most of the vineyards are planted on gentle gradient hilly slopes the western side of the ranges, at elevations of about 75 to 100 m above sea level . This elevation, soils and undulation means the vineyard sites are quite distinct to those in the other Limestone Coast Regions. Being inland from the coast the climate is more continental with mean temperature in January of 20.2 degrees C. The rainfall during the growing season, from October to April, is relatively low at about 200 - 235 mm (8-9 inches). Bore water from the extensive underground reserves is used to provide supplementary irrigation. The soils feature terra rossa soils over a limestone base. The first vines were planted in 1968, but most plantings occurred in the 1990s. Visitors can enjoy extraordinary limestone cave systems throughout the area. The best are the caves at the Naracoorte Caves National Park, which includes about 25 large and spectacular caves featuring cathedral domes, stalactites and stalagmites. There is an excellent range of accommodation from hotels and motels to farmstays, Bed and Breakfasts and a variety of houses, flats and other to self contained accommodation. Most of the local wineries and pubs serve local wines.
