“Things in life are better when they’re shared”. At Raidis Estate that’s done over the table – loaded with backyard produce, a bottle or two of good wine and surrounded by family and friends.
It might be their Greek heritage that inspired the Raidis family to work the land. Since leaving more than 60 years ago Chris, with his wife Fran, has worked the Terra Rossa soils of Coonawarra, growing tomatoes, lettuces and strawberries before Steven joined his parents in the family business, together planting vines in 1990.
Two vineyard sites feature both the young and the old; regional classics Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot along with Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris.
2 lemon trees, 20 apple trees, 300 strawberry plants, 200 bushes of oregano and whatever else Chris has decided to grow on any given day, share the space with the Raidis Estate cellar door.
Visit the cellar door and you might chance upon Chris offering up the backyard’s latest bounty or you’ll find a husband and wife (the winemaking duo), Steven and Emma Raidis, at the table, glass in hand, ready to share a story or two.
Thursday – Monday 12pm – 5.30pm and by appointment at all other times.
Call Steven – 0417 834 195 or Emma – 0419 805 845
