A winery on Kangaroo Island is being influenced by Europe, in particular France, from growing the grapes through to storing the wine. French winemaker Jacques Lurton chose Kangaroo Island as the location for his Australian winery, Islander Estate Wines. The winery is spread over 11 hectares and produces about 70 tonnes of grapes a year.
