Who are Illalangi?
The name ‘Illalangi’ comes from to the Aboriginal word meaning “home on hill”, incredibly fitting for this hidden gem in Waikerie.
Their label also draws inspiration from the Aboriginal myth of the Rainbow Serpent, a powerful symbol that holds control over life’s most precious resource, water, and is the lifeblood to the semi-arid region of the Riverland.
The Gorman’s came into business out of passion for the region. This entrepreneurial family fell in love with the region and its amazing clean green produce, made possible by its Mediterranean climate, and have pursued it as their own success story.
We love to eat, and share amazing Riverland and South Australian produce and encourage people to cook, and support our amazing producers.
Keryn & John Gorman
Why you’ll love their produce…
Through travelling the world and then experimenting with local ingredients, Keryn and John have developed an iconic signature range of single estate, small batch wines and extra virgin olive oil.
As well as this there is an ever-expanding unique range of gourmet products featuring local fresh produce and native ingredients.
Their extra virgin olive oil is set above the rest after being one of the first in SA to store in casks, providing premium storage for what is essentially “just olive juice”, so you will enjoy its health benefits and amazing fresh taste until the last drop.
Their commitment to quality shows, with the award-winning Caramelised Wattleseed Balsamic, which took home a silver medal at the Sydney Fine Food Show in 2010. Enjoy the saltbush blend of their native dukkah, with Riverland almonds and pistachios, sunflower kernels, sesame seeds and pine nuts blended with their signature native herbs and spices.
The Illalangi wines are an in-demand scarcity, showing off the new world varietals emerging into the SA wine scene.
