Winemaking and viticulture can be quite complicated, yet wonderfully simple at the same time. I consider the past 400 years of our Italian traditions and the last 175 of our Barossa winemaking heritage, while using an analytical and scientific approach to understand our soil health and our vine tissue.
An Ancestor vine has stood strong and proud for at least one hundred and twenty five years — a living tribute to the early European settlers of Barossa. Their genetic material has helped to populate the region with
irreplaceable old stocks that underpin our viticultural tradition. They tend to be dry-grown, low-yielding vines with great intensity of flavour, and are believed to be among the oldest producing vines in the world.
Regarded as the most prestigious wine region in Australia, 60km north of Adelaide, in South Australia. Traditional owners the Ngadjuri and Peramangk, lived on and facilitated the land. The area was rich in supplies, including plants for food and medicine, animals for meat and plenty of fresh water.
