The Islander Estate Vineyards are the home of French winemaker Jacques Lurton, who founded the 300-hectare property near Parndana located in the heartland of Kangaroo Island. Jacques considers the soils to be similar to those of Fitou in Languedoc-Rousillon, Southern France. He finds Kangaroo Island to be a very interesting place to grow grapes as there is an immense amount of variation in terroir: soils, rainfall, aspect and style, all of which influence the resulting wine.
