The Barossa Chapters tell the story of Barossa. They are presented as nine individual sections (chapters), each highlighting different elements of the Barossa story. The Rare & Distinguished and Shiraz Chapters highlight the fine wines of Barossa. The Generations, Old Vines, Varieties and Flavours Chapters give glimpses into how the past has created Barossa as we know it today.
“Our old vineyard was planted by the Graetz family in 1848 and is the oldest continuously producing Grenache vineyard in the world. They are not good because they are old, they are old because they’re good. They stayed in the ground all of those years because they produced good wine consistently. In the hotter years they manage the heat better than younger vines, and in wetter years they plod along at about the same pace producing soft, delicate Grenache, year in, year out. Young vines make great wines too but they are more affected by the environment. Our old vines are part of the environment.”
