The Barossa is Australia’s most famous wine region and has the oldest bearing Shiraz in the world.
Thankfully it has been my home since 1980 and I have been fortunate to be amongst an amazing group of people here for a long time – winemakers, vignerons and of course friends.
Sorby Adams Wines is our family brand (Anna Louisa Sorby married Augustus Crichton Adams in the early 1800’s in Hertfordshire and has been our family name ever since) and we are proud to show you what we do.
The journey commenced in 1980 when Simon, fresh out of Year 12 at School in Adelaide accepted a vintage role with family owned Yalumba Winery in the Barossa. What started as a 3 month casual position progressed to a career with Yalumba and into the role of Red Winemaker at age 26 and then Chief Winemaker at 33.
Our wines are availble for tasting and sales at Taste Eden Valley, 6 Washington Street, Angaston.
