The reason for Trials is to bring consumers the best value wines. The two on special this weekend explore what is possible from the bargain country of Langhorne Creek, while the other searches for ways to show the beauty of an antique Barossa variety, the long forgotten Bonvedro, originally from Portugual. .. more...

It is appropriate for winemakers to experiment and these may make little steps or giant leaps. I doubt there is a winery in Australia where one or other trials or experiment is not underway - it's just the nature of progressing thoughts. .. more...

Region: Barossa Valley
We likely will never know what varieties were planted back in the pioneering days of the 1840s though likely a wide mix of varieties of which one should have been Grenache as it thrives in warm regions. Those first reds would have been field blends of many varieties and the division of vineyards into varietal types  more detail...
Region: Barossa Valley
Glug is a supporter of Semillon from the Barossa Valley as we find an appeal in whites ripened in a warm climate. Semillon is a complex variety and changes its character with the climate of the vineyard. This means wonderful examples come from the Lower and Upper Hunter a climate which can verge on sub-tropical and  more detail...

At Glug we barrel age small amounts of precious Barossa Shiraz which we make and buy from local artisans. This Stockwell Creek is part of a few barrels we purchased from a grower-maker.

Perfecting The Late Afternoon Red
Region: McLaren Vale, SA
Experiments began over 10 years ago, back in 2009, to develop a sappy, tasty red to open after a luncheon white.
