The Sidewood Winery was built to accommodate small to medium size batches of fruit specific to the needs of the Adelaide Hills. Clients can choose between driving the style or working closely with Darryl and the team, guiding them through the process from start to finish. This maximizes the potential of your grapes to become exceptional wine.
The winery is equipped with:
In 2016 Sidewood commenced canning and kegging of cider with the addition of a bottling line for still and sparkling wine in September 2017.
The bottling line is the first of its kind for the Adelaide Hills region servicing the Hills and beyond. It has a capacity to bottle up to 3000 bottles per hour, which is the equivalent of 5 million bottles per annum.
The bottling line was chosen specifically for its ability to bottle wines, ciders and various other packages under pressure and offers a lot of flexibility allowing for small batch bottling sizes.
Bringing a contract bottling facility to the Adelaide Hills offers a fantastic opportunity for local producers including small producers to produce sparkling wines including Moscato, Prosecco and other sparkling products, within close proximity to their production areas.
Part of the winery encompasses a cider production facility which can accommodate most styles of cider making. This includes processing apples through the mill or utilising your contract juice through the processing facilities, all of which can be kegged, bottled or canned on site.
