Shingleback Vineyards

Shingleback is one of the great success stories of the McLaren Vale region, a story that is being exported to most corners of the world. Award winning winemakers John Davey and Dan Hills know that the success of their award winning wines starts in the vineyard. And a successful vineyard needs a successful irrigation system. 

HydroPlan has provided irrigation design and advisory services to Kym and John Davey and their team since they developed their first vineyards in the 1990s. The challenges included the rationalisation and integration of groundwater, recycled water and surface water on their vineyard as it developed in stages, as well as integration with neighbouring vineyards. A great team and a state of the art pumping, filtration, fertigation and control system ensures the great wines keep coming!
