Phillip bought into a Private pipeline to deliver River Murray Water to his property providing the opportunity to re-develop his mixed farm into a vineyard.
In 1993 Phillip carefully selected vine material which he used to develop his own vineyard nursery and this was the start of Angas Plains Estate.
In 1994 the first Cabernet Sauvignon was planted.
Together Phillip & Judy continued to develop a new block of vines each year, finishing with Chardonnay in 2002.
In 2002 Angas Plains Estate produced it's first vintage of wine. A very small crush to produce PJ's Cabernet Sauvignon.
In 2003 production increased to produce PJ's Shiraz and PJ's Cabernet Sauvignon, with production increasing year.
While maintaining the supply of grapes to some other buyers also.
In 2005 the wine storage was constructed on the property.
In October 2006 PJ's Cellar door opened and the facilities have been expanding ever since, to ensure visitors can enjoy their visit on our lovely property.
Vistitors to our Cellar door bring little snippets of their lives which key into Angas Plains Wines.
This blending and weaving of stories ranging from how the district and farming have changed.
What's happening in other districts to the joy and heart break of people's life journeys.
It is wonderful to embrace this with others!
