Langhorne Creek is home to the six generation grape growing families in Langhorne Creek years of winemaking
Much of Langhorne Creek wine region sits atop an ancient natural floodplain between the Bremer and Angas Rivers on the shores of Lake Alexandrina and it was these fertile alluvial soils that attracted white settlers to the region.
The history of white settlement of Langhorne Creek began with Alfred ‘The Liar’ Langhorne, a cattle drover renowned for his dishonest dealings. Alfred brought animals overland to a property known as Langhorne Station during the 1840s and the place where he traversed the Bremer River was referred to as Langhorne’s Crossing.
From this the current name Langhorne Creek evolved, even though there is no waterway named Langhorne Creek.
