Every Saturday this October, join an Artisan in the heart of the Barossa for an unmatched wine-tasting experience.

Each week, an Artisan joins us in our Wine Room. Reserve a spot in our Wine Room lounge for a Rarities tasting, where w showcase new releases, museum pieces, or large format wines. During your tasting, our Artisan will share insights about the traditions of small-batch winemaking in the Barossa and guide you through the essence of each wine.

This exclusive experience, emblematic of our collaborative essence, offers a rare chance to delve into discussions about the wine with those who craft them.

Space in the Wine Room is limited. Reservations are imperative.

7 October

Join Magali Gely on Saturday, 7 October, to taste and discuss the new wave Barossa wines of Spinifex.

“Pete and his partner Magali Gely operate what I think is the best new-wave of small-scale Barossa wine companies to emerge at the beginning of the 21st century… These weren’t big, blockbuster, showy wines designed to impress. They were wines that managed to take the best of the Barossa’s sometimes forgotten varietal traditions and fuse them onto a very European flavour sensibility.” Max Allen, The Future Makers⁠

14 October

Many of the small batch wines of Hobbs of Barossa Ranges have been in hot demand this year, and sold out ths year. Join Greg and Allison Hobbs for a personal tasting and a chance to taste the new bottlings from the incredibly tiny and very high-quality 2021 vintage.

Greg and Allison, and their family moved to the Barossa in 1995, leaving the city behind for a new life amongst the vines. The vineyard that encircles their home high up in the Barossa ranges is one of the district’s oldest, and each year produces a tiny harvest of intensely flavoured grapes.

All you need to know is: Chaffey Bros. Wine Co. TRIPLEPUNKT* Riesling 2023 will be released, capping off an incredible month of Eden Valley Riesling events across the 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.

 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.

Presenting over 100 Barossa wines on tasting in one place, along with Essen, our benchmark Barossa dining space, Artisans of Barossa is a not-to-be missed destination for any seeker of warm hospitality and Barossa wine and food.
