OUR REGIONS

Barossa Valley

Incorporating both the Barossa and Eden Valleys, this is one of the only wine regions in Australia to have neighbouring warm and cool climate growing conditions.  

The Barossa is well-known across the world for producing some of the best Australian fruit varieties that go to make some of our finest wines.

Incorporating both the Barossa and Eden Valleys, this is one of the only wine regions in Australia to have neighbouring warm and cool climate growing conditions.

With such a diversity of growing conditions and soil types across both valleys, and vineyards that have been tended by hand for many generations, we are proud to source fruit here and to produce a Grenache we love to share.

Best known for: Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling

Climate

  • The region has a Mediterranean climate ideal for full-bodied red wines, excellent fortified wines and generally robust white wines.
  • The climate ranges from warm on the valley floor to cool at the higher altitudes in the hills surrounding the Valley.
  • The region has a large diurnal temperature range, high maximum temperatures, high sunshine days and  low humidity and rainfall.

Soil

  • The complex system of valleys and twisting hills results in a variety of slopes, aspects and sites.
