Dandelion Vineyards

Proper fun, Proper wines!

Why Are They So Fabulous?

South Australian power couple Elena and Zar Brooks (plus Madison the wine dog) are famed amongst wine folk.

Not only that, their Dandelion wines are well loved by critics and wine drinkers Australia wide!

Dandelion Vineyards is a unique fusion of vineyards and vignerons.

Their wines represent decades of experience, blending the fruit of their heirloom vineyards with the finest traditions of artisan winemaking. Dandelion Vineyards combination of old vineyards and young winemaker and a couple of mates to help out in-between makes for the ideal Aussie winery.

Dandelion’s philosophy?

“Our vineyards are our family, their wines our children.  Serious stuff, certainly. Proper fun, absolutely.”


We can all get behind that!

Growing their own grapes plus sourcing from the best of family vineyards means the Brooks’ nurture the unique character of these vineyards and express them in their wines.

“The lifelong search to appreciate and understand the essence of wine, its terroir, leads us on a vinous treasure hunt, following the Dandelion’s Wishing Clock if you will, that always inspires.”


Separating single sites, and even single soil types, vine by vine if need be.

Now that’s dedication.

Cheers all the Dandy Lion’s!
