His response; 'It costs no more to make good wine than bad wine.' The fully ripened grapes go to the winery and the wine maker uses a bag of tricks to preserve the tastes of nature and get it into a bottle. more...

August 31st, the last day of our Adelaidean-Mount Lofty Festival of Shiraz for 2015. Next time you lift a glass of wine exploring the colour ask yourself where it comes from.

Warmth and the Barossa Valley go together and it makes sense to grow varieties which thrive in a similar warm climate.

WORDS FROM DAVID FARMER
'The enjoyment of wine creates memories and as you move from drinking wine as a daily beverage and begin to try some of the more exotic, expensive and rarified wines so the memories accumulate.

Peter Bond Burgoyne was a most influential UK wine merchant who plundered the best of South Australia and Victoria wines spanning the years 1870s to the 1930s though the company lasted till the 1950s.
