Given the long association between this property and its’ industrious creative pioneers, I am pleased to report that the new custodians of the land are equally motivated to leave their own mark on the region. The Usher and Morgan families, who purchased the holding in 2006, have generously unmasked a part of their beautiful property and feel both honoured and privelaged to be able to share this region of barely describable beauty with you. S O M E FAC T S The Overflow Estate 1895 is a Boutique Vineyard and Cellar Door hand crafted into the surroundings of Lake Wyaralong. David Morgan, part owner and creative genius behind the venture, said it best when describing how they achieved such a collaborative result mixing business with landscape and history – “Everything has an origin. Things we can see, smell, taste, hear and touch have survived. Those that we cannot, have not. We are here to see that everything else remains”. The facility offers a wonderful select menu of local delights from the gourmet cafe and proudly offers wine — exclusively produced from the vines of the estate. The Vineyard which was established in 2010, is home to over 2500 vines of select varieties ideally suited to the local climate and soil types. The results I can attest after ample sampling, are a delicate pleasure to consume and complement locally grown produce perfectly. The history of the property is fascinating. The Overflow Estate 1895 is just a small part of a larger working rural property venture set upon 4000 acres within the Scenic Rim, only 60 minutes by car from the city or the coast. I won’t spoil the party, take five minutes and get online or better yet go for a short drive and visit for yourself.
