About Ricca Terra

Their vision was to plant, nurture & make wine from grape varieties best suited to Australia’s warm & dry climate. Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot quickly made way for Nero d’Avola, Montepulciano, Tinta Barroca, Fiano, Vermentino and many other Mediterranean varieties.

Ricca Terra is recognised for its innovation, leadership & vision, which helps contribute to the future reputation & excitement of Australian Wine. Winner of the Gourmet Traveller Viticulturist of the Year, Ashley & Holly have challenged tradition & forged lasting change with their vineyards & wines.

Ricca Terra is made up of ten individual vineyards located in Barmera, South Australia.
In total, the vineyards occupy 70 hectares of land, which were originally farmed by returned soldiers from the first & second World Wars.  Some of these original soldier settlement vineyards still exist and are the true treasures of Ricca Terra.
The dry & warm growing conditions of Barmera, means vineyards in the region (Riverland) rely on irrigation from the Murray River.  The use of Mediterranean grape varieties (Nero d’Avola, Montepulciano, Tinta Barroca, Vermentino & many others), adoption of drought tolerant rootstocks, using water saving mulches and implementing premium viticultural techniques & technology, means Ricca Terra grows grapes and makes wines with minimal inputs & limits its environmental footprint.
Aligning climatic conditions with grape variety that allow for sustainable farming and the crafting of premium wines is the core philosophy that drives Ricca Terra’s vision of creating one of Australia’s great vineyards.
