In a thrilling evolution of our journey, Artisans of Barossa proudly announces an expansive new chapter that reaches beyond the soils of the Barossa to embrace wines of the world that match our commitment to celebrating the art of small-batch wines. 

We are delighted to introduce an exquisite selection of international small-batch wines from some of the world's most revered wine-producing regions, starting with the sparkling hills of Champagne.

Spotlight on Bruno Paillard Champagne

We are thrilled to spotlight our first international winery, Bruno Paillard, from the revered vineyards of Champagne, France. With a family lineage in Champagne back to the 1700s, Paillard founded his house in 1981 at the young age of 27 and by 1988, Hugh Johnson had already defined the house as "A small but prestigious young champagne house with excellent silky vintages and non vintage!". In 1983, Paillard became the first champagne producer to display the disgorgement date on every single bottle. In 1994, he bought his first vineyard: three grand Cru hectares in Oger in the Côte des Blancs, marking the beginning of the patient creation of a remarkable vineyard that today covers 25 hectares, 12 of which are Grand Cru, providing more than half of the Maison's needs. The remainder are from the same independent growers from more than 30 villages, who have been Paillard's partners for many years.

At the forefront of their offerings, we introduce their exquisite Bruno Paillard Premièe Cuvée Extra-Brut (6g/l), a testament to the precision and finesse of Paillard's winemaking philosophy. Blended only from first pressings from 35 different crus of Champagne, this cuvée embodies the elegance and complexity that Champagne lovers covet. Aged for three years on lees and six months post disgorgement, it creates a rich house style. Alongside, we are excited to present the Bruno Paillard Prèmiere Dosage : Zéro, a remarkable expression of purity and balance. This cuvée stands out for its significant portion of reserve wine (50%) and the bold decision to eschew the addition of any dosage, allowing the terroir's true character to shine through, offering a crisp, unadulterated tasting experience that captures the essence of Champagne's unique landscape. These selections from Champagne Bruno Paillard exemplify the winemaking and innovative spirit that Artisans of Barossa seek to share with the world.
