Take It To The Grave
Take it to the Grave is a range of regional South Australian wines created by Corey Ryan and Nicholas Crampton. Sourced from Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra, Barossa Valley and Langhorne Creek the Take it to the Grave wines unlock the secrets of winemaking to deliver incredible value and quality.



Take it to the Grave is made in two locations – the first being at Jim Zerella’s winery in McLaren Vale as well as Corey Ryan’s Sons of Eden Winery in the Barossa Valley. Jim Zerella is one of the largest wine growers in the region, managing over a 1000 acres of vineyards and at the recent McLaren Vale wine show he won 5 trophies, including Best Small Wine. Corey Ryan was a QANTAS Winemaker of the Year finalist in 2016 and makes some of the finest wines in the Barossa Valley. Both wineries make small-batch, hand crafted wines using minimal intervention techniques.
Langhorne Creek
Less than an hour drive south east of Adelaide, you'll find the country town of Langhorne Creek. It's full of family wine growers some who've been making wine in the area for up to six generations. It's most well known for producing red wines of high quality, in particular Cabernet and Shiraz.



Langhorne Creek experiences ocean breezes which moderate the otherwise warm climate. The town is on the banks of the north to south flowing Bremer River which flows on to Lake Alexandrina. The river frequently floods across the vineyards (particularly in winter) bringing up silts which contribute to the regions terroir.



Whilst it may still not be the most well known of South Australia's many wine regions, plenty of outstanding wine comes from there.

Campbell Mattinson
A different face to Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon. It includes, interestingly enough, 10% shiraz.



If this doesn’t fly off the shelves then something is awfully wrong. It’s brilliant drinking and value. Sweet black berries, licorice, menthol and florals. It’s all up front and it all goes down a treat. It’s made to pop and pour in the best of ways. Don’t cellar. Drink now. Done. Sorted.

Brightly fruited and beautifully aromatic, the bouquet shows cassis, dark plum, blueberry compote and mint chocolate characters with a hint of cedar complexity. It is succulent and rounded on the palate, and displays attractive fruit intensity backed by fine, chalky tannins, leading to a sustained juicy finish.
