Restless River is owned and run by Craig and Anne Wessels, who acquired the 20ha farm in 2004 and started developing it. Winemaking started in the garage before the winery was built. The couple moved onto the farm in 2008. The vines however, preceded their arrival and were first planted in 1998. Under the Wessels', the first vintage from 7ha of vines came in 2005, with the Restless River label launched in 2012. Its wines include Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
