Stanton & Killeen
The Stanton and Killeen property is situated three kilometres due west of Rutherglen on the Murray Valley Highway on gently undulating picturesque farming country. Over 300 hectares are devoted to mixed farming enterprises while 30 hectares of the best well drained soils are planted to vines with an annual production of approximately 250 tonnes.

The soil ranges in quality from gravel ridges to red loam on the slopes under which lies a porous clay. It is on these latter soils that the classic muscat, tokay and full bodied dry reds are produced. Some of the original vineyards planted by Jack Stanton in 1921 are still in production and produce some of the finest fruit in the district.

The most notable being the old shiraz vines which produce the now famous "Jacks Block Shiraz” dry red while also providing the blockbuster blending material for the equally famous Stanton and Killeen Vintage Port. Other grape varieties planted at Stanton and Killeen include Chardonnay, Durif, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Muscat, Muscadelle and the port varieties of Touriga Nacional, Tinto Cao, Tinta Barroca and Tinta Roriz.
