Our Cellar Door started in December 1992 with only 3 wines; a sweet Riesling blend, a Cabernet and a bulk port. The tasting room was a brand new winery shed which housed large old barrels to store the bulk fortified that we are now so well known for.
We decided to kick off celebrations in October with the a special day to reminisce over two decades with family and friends. It gave Ron an excuse to dig out aged stocks and select the best reds from over 20 years.
n Sunday 14th October, over 200 people dropped into cellar door on a gorgeous spring day to enjoy gourmet burgers, decadent desserts and back vintage wines. Live music was provided by local singer songwriter Cloudy Davey who shared her heartfelt songs with the crowd.
We teamed up with Burger Theory who brought their popular food truck ‘Pearl” for her long-awaited first visit to the Barossa. Homemade decadent cakes were prepared by Little Dot Bake Shop including a special heart-shaped chocolate truffle cake infused with 20 year old Liebich Anniversary Tawny (Ron’s new favourite dessert). This wine was bottled specially for the day and is available at cellar door only.
At the museum bar Ron was offering a selection of Merlot, Cabernet and Shiraz wines from vintage 1993 to 2002. Most of these wines are so limited in stock that we could only offer tastings. Fortunately we have managed to uncover some old stock in the cellar and we are able to sell certain vintages in 750mL bottles (mostly cork, some screwcap) and even a few in 1.5L magnums (all cork).
We wish to sincerely thank everyone that has been involved in the vineyard and winery over the years and our all important customers for their support and passion for fine Barossa wine.
