With an Artisan joining us every Saturday in May, there is no better place in the Barossa to taste wine with a winemaker. ⁠

Wine Room reservations are essential. ⁠⁠

3 June

James Lienert, the winemaker half of Liernert Vineyards, joins us to launch a very special release. The Laudamus 2018. 

Laudamus, Latin for praise, is Lienert’s flagship Shiraz and is created only in special vintages. A modern interpretation of Barossa Shiraz, with the vineyard playing a significant role. The vineyard in question is the ‘House Block’, the original planting of 1654 Shiraz, planted in 2001 by John and his father. ⁠

The vines sit on a gentle slope with shallow Terra Rossa red clay loam over a limestone band. This allows plenty of good nutrition from the loam but prevents excessive vine activity from the hard limestone barrier underneath. As such, the vines yield much lower and produce exceptional quality fruit.⁠

10 June

The long-awaited release of the newly redesigned, single vineyard and special release wines. The wines have been released via our email database, and the response was swift.

This will likely be the only opportunity to taste these wines with our wine lounge with Peter and Magali, as we expect our allocation to be sold quickly. There are a small number of magnums available as well.

Expect to see Indigine Shiraz Mataro 2021 (93+ points, Campbell Mattinson), La Maline, High Eden Shiraz Viognier 2021 (95 points, Campbell Mattinson), Moppa Shiraz 2021 (95 points, Campbell Mattinson) & the new label, Sol Solice Grenache 2021 (95 points, Campbell Mattinson) a selection of their finest Grenache of the vintage.


17 June

Coinciding with International Chenin Blanc Day, Jason Schwarz joins us to show the ageing potential of Chenin Blanc, the highly revered grape variety from its home in the Loire Valley. It's not often Chenin Blanc gets its day in the sun in the Barossa, and Jason will be bringing special back vintage wines from his personal cellar.


24 June 

The wines of Hobbs of Barossa Ranges come high up in Flaxman Valley. Joing Greg and Allison and hearing how their leaf change to raise the kids in the countryside turned into a full-blown passion.

The story of Hobbs began in 1995 when Greg and Allison’s next-door neighbour and outstanding winemaker Chris Ringland made their first few vintages. Much has happened since then!

Artisans of Barossa is where you can enjoy everything that is good about the Barossa region, be it in a glass or on a plate.⁠

Here’s how it works: 

Each Saturday, we have one of our Artisans in our Wine Room and Essen, our contemporary, innovative interpretation of seasonal Barossa food.


Make a reservation in our Wine Room lounge for a Rarities tasting, and we’ll have new releases, museum or large format wines available. One of our Artisans will join you for part of your tasting, talk you through how we preserve small-batch winemaking in the Barossa, and guide you through the wines. 

It’s an experience never to be repeated, and one of the unique features of our collaborative concept - is the ability to connect with and discuss the wines with the people that make them.  

Our home is where we share everything we love about Barossa with you.

An opportunity for you to relax and enjoy over 100 wines from eight small-batch winemakers in our Wine Room or at Essen, our benchmark Barossa dining space.

The Artisans of Barossa are John Duval Wines, Spinifex Wines, Sons of Eden, Lienert Vineyards, Schwarz Wine Co., Purple Hands Wines, Hobbs of Barossa Ranges and Chaffey Bros. Wine Co.

Eight small winemakers brought together by a shared commitment to protect and promote the art of small-batch Barossa winemaking.
