Winery Backgrounds:

Hentley Farm
Set on the red-brown soils of the western Barossa Valley, Hentley Farm founders Keith and Alison Hentschke acquired the 150 acre vineyard and mixed farming property in the 1990s. Following extensive research to find out where the best red wine grapes in the Barossa Valley were being produced, their studies led them towards the rich red soils of the Seppeltsfield area. Keith used an old soil map from the 1950s to strategically locate the best parcels of land and after a number of years acquired Hentley Farm. With a focus on perfecting the vineyards, the first wines weren’t released from the property until 2002. The estate was extended with the purchase of the neighboring high quality Clos Otto block in 2004.

Oliver’s Taranga
William and Elizabeth Oliver arrived from Scotland in 1839 to settle at McLaren Vale. Six generations later, members of the family are still living on the Whitehill and Taranga farms. The Taranga property has 15 varieties planted. In 2011 the family celebrated 170 years of grape growing.

Majella Wines
Majella Wines is a family owned winery based in the famous Coonawarra wine region in South Australia, home to some of Australia’s greatest wines. The winery was completed in late 1998 and Majella’s winemaker Bruce Gregory has made every bottle of Majella ever released.

Thorn-Clarke
With a family history in the Barossa region dating back to the 1850s and estate grown vineyards now totaling over 270 hectares, Thorn-Clarke produces a range of award winning Barossa Valley red and Eden Valley white wines. The winery is one of the largest family-owned estate-based businesses in the Barossa.

TurkeyFlat Vineyards
Turkey Flat wines began in 1847 when Johann Frederick August Fiedler planted Shiraz vines near Bethany Creek. The vines planted in 1847 are some of the oldest vines used for commercial wine production today and believed to be the world’s oldest vines that have been authenticated. The Turkey Flat vineyards and winery are now situated on the historic Section One property in the centre of the Barossa.

Farmer’s Leap
When Scott Longbottom and Cheryl Merrett took the leap to plant vines on their Padthaway land in 1993, they applied the know-how handed down from three generations of farmers. This place is part of their DNA. Much like Scott and Cheryl, the wines are honest and approachable, wines they are proud to put on the table and enjoy with their friends. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are all produced under the Farmer’s Leap and Random Shot labels.

Henschke
Henschke is a family-owned, 148-year-old Australian winery, located in Keyneton, South Australia in the Eden Valley wine region. Regarded as the best medium-sized red wine producer in Australia, Henschke has gone from strength to strength over the past three decades under the guidance of winemaker Stephen and viticulturist Prue Henschke.

Highbank
Highbank Wines is a classic, small, family winery on a raised section of rich, red, terra rossa soil – the soil that makes the Coonawarra such a prized wine region world wide. Highbank’s premium handcrafted wines have gaining attention from wine enthusiasts and are regularly sighted on the wine lists of Australia’s top restaurants.

Sons of Eden
Sons of Eden has a simple philosophy to produce wines with flavour and personality from vineyards of unique character within the world class Barossa region. Sons of Eden takes its name from the two partners, Winemaker Corey Ryan and Viticulturist Simon Cowham, who both learned and refined their trades in the vineyards and cellars of Eden Valley. The winery specialises in varieties that the Barossa produces to the highest standard. Varieties such as Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre from the Barossa Valley and Riesling from the Eden Valley. Open link to learn more about the Valleys of the Barossa.

St Hallett
Strong long-term relationships with focused and passionate growers give St Hallett access to the Barossa’s most prized vineyards with some dating back over 100 years. Over time St Hallett has built up a deep understanding of the rich tapestry of sites and climates in the Barossa and with it an appreciation of both dedicated growers and quality vines.

Hither and Yon
Owned by brothers Richard and Malcolm Leaske and based in McLaren Vale, Hither & Yon crafts a unique range of wines from varying sites within McLaren Vale each year. Richard manages all the vineyards and makes the wines, Malcolm handles production, sales and the historic cellar door
