The Knaggs family connection to the King Valley is a long standing one. Three generations ago in the 1930s, Trevor’s grandfather came to the King Valley and began farming sheep. Trevor's father followed in his footsteps but later moved to cattle farming.

Today however, it’s grapes that keeps the connection alive!

A relatively recent addition to the King Valley wine region, King River Estate was born in 1990 after owner and winemaker Trevor Knaggs, with the assistance of his father Colin, planted the first vines – five acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, shortly followed by Merlot.

The first vintage to be sold was 1994 Vintage, which set the ball rolling for King River Estate and since then the vineyard has built a solid reputation for producing elegant, high quality wines which are great with food.
