We are always mindful that every bottle bears our family name, so our family’s reputation resides in every bottle of wine we make.


Atkins Family Vineyards is an Adelaide Hills wine company owned by Sam and Rachel Atkins.

The Atkins Family started farming in the Adelaide Hills in 1929 when Hastings ‘Bill’ Atkins purchased “Yarrawee” at Meadows, in the picturesque southern Adelaide Hills.

Bill farmed the land until the age of 97 and ‘Atkins Farm’, as it is known today, continues to be managed by the family.

Our family vineyard is just 10 km south from Atkins Farm and represents the family’s continuing passion for the region, the land and the Australian Wine Industry (which included Bill’s wife Gwen’s father, who was one of South Australia’s earliest winemakers).


Working from paddock to plate, we are involved in every aspect of growing our fruit through sustainable vineyard practices; to making the wine and branding; and selling the product to ensure maximum enjoyment.

While we are respectful of our past, we have an insatiable desire to improve and grow, and develop a legacy that will truly stand the test of time.
