  1. Artisans of Barossa

    Artisans of Barossa

    To be an ‘artisan’ is very much about setting your own path driven by a human desire to explore, experiment and to express ourselves. To create and share things shaped in our mind and made by our own hands for the enjoyment of others. Often proffered with a simple “I made this, please enjoy”. A tinge of pride yes, but hubris never.

  5. Hickinbotham Wines

    Hickinbotham Wines

    You might know a bit more about the wines of Yangarra than you do those of Hickinbotham Clarendon Vineyard but they do share a connection as the Jackson Family own both (along with 34 other wineries around the world). Yangarra’ s winemaker, Pete Fraser also helps out with the production of the Hickinbotham wines. You’ll also be familiar with the ‘output’ of the vineyard which was planted in 1971 but not purchased by the Jackson Family until 2012. It has often supplied fruit for Penfolds Grange, Clarendon Hill Astralis, Wirra Wirra’s Angelus, Hardy’s Eileen Hardy Shiraz and plenty more top end Aussie bottles.

    Dandelion Vineyards make wines from the McLaren Vale, the Barossa, Eden Valley, Adelaide Hills and Fleurieu Peninsula.

    Dandelion was rated as a five star producer in its first year in James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion 2011 (pretty much unheard of) and has improved that to five red stars, Halliday’s highest rating. “Elena is an exceptionally gifted winemaker”. Their first Sauvignon Blanc was awarded the equal highest pointed Sauvignon Blanc in James Halliday’s Wine Companion. They were awarded equal highest pointed Rosé in 2012 and equal highest pointed Eden Valley Shiraz as well.

  10. Tim Smith Wines

    Tim Smith Wines

    Tim Smith Wines was established in 2001 following Tim's return to the Barossa from a winemaking scholarship in the Rhone Valley, awarded by the Barossa Grape and Wine Association.  Tim was selected due to the promise he had shown as a winemaker.

    The Rhone Valley Winemakers Association did the same with a Rhone winemaker heading to Oz. Tim headed to the Rhone to do a vintage there and learn the secrets that make the region tick. Apparently, the Rhonies weren’t too forthcoming with their secrets, nor were they too keen to hear the musings of a New World upstart!

    What Tim did learn by distilling the titbits gleaned from the Rhone Winemakers, sometimes three sheets to the wind in bars at night with poor English/French translation, was that he needed to start his own winery if he truly wanted to make wines which he enjoyed drinking himself. So, Tim Smith Wines was born, albeit initially as a part time thing supported by day jobs.

  11. Claymore Wines

    Claymore Wines

    Year in year out this is one of Australia’s most consistent and consistently underpriced wineries. They offer a level of polish and sophistication we normally (but don’t always) see in reds priced at $50 and over per bottle and are a 5 Star James Halliday rated winery.

    Claymore wines began in 1997 with just a tiny amount of Grenache and Riesling but have flourished into one of the Clare Valley’s best-known producers. They signed a three year contract in 2015 with English Football giants Liverpool much to the dismay of our Manchester United loving tasting panel member, Dan. Although Dan hasn’t let his football bias affect his love of Claymore's offerings!
