Morgan Simpson is a small McLaren Vale wine producer located in the foothills of the South Mount Lofty Ranges. Winemaker Richard Simpson (B.App. Science - Wine Science, CSU) selects small parcels of fruit from the families' Clos Robert vineyard (first planted by Robert Allen Simpson in 1972).

The winemaking began with a trial vintage - 2 barriques of Cabernet Sauvignon - in 1997 (Silver medal and 2nd overall in the  National Amateur Wine and Beer Show) followed by the start of a commercial operation in 1998 with our only wine, a Cabernet Sauvignon, winning a Gold medal at the McLaren Vale wine show.

Since then we have won a few more medals and trophies and extended the range somewhat.  The wine is hand made on site using traditional small scale winemaking equipment and batch process methods (basket press, small open fermenters, hand plunge). We combine this with, as far as economically practicable, modern analytical techniques. We are currently crushing about 20 tonnes (Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Mataro, Semillon and Chardonnay).

We have done consistently well in wine shows around Australia.

Currently our wine is available through mail order and a number of retail outlets.

We sometimes make wine with high alcohol levels.
