GRANT BURGE VINEYARDS
The Barossa is famous around the world for its premium wines and Grant Burge is one of the most recognised winemakers from this region. He is also proud to be a 'Baron of the Barossa'. Grant believes the diversity of the terroir and our region's levels, combined with its Mediterranean climate, provide the perfect environment to make a range of ultra-premium wines. Located just 80km north of South Australia’s capital city Adelaide, the Barossa also provides a perfect weekend escape to enjoy its fine wines and gourmet food.
The region consists of two distinct valleys. The Barossa Valley floor is 200-250m above sea level, with rich, red-brown, deep, alluvial soils ideal for red wine grape growing. This contrasts to the high altitude Eden Valley at 500m above sea level with rocky, acidic and grey schist soils, ideal for cool-climate viticulture. Together, these two geographical indications make up The Barossa.
The Barossa is widely recognised as Australia’s most varied district for premium grape growing. It features cold, wet winters and generous spring rains to set up moisture reserves. During summer and autumn, the weather dries off, providing warm and moderate conditions ideal for ripening grapes. This produces the full, generous varietal flavours for which the district is renowned.
Grant Burge has a profound understanding and respect for his land, and is a proud ambassador and caretaker of The Barossa. He personally oversees all aspects of wine production from vineyard management and maintenance through to winemaking procedures to ensure longevity for generations to come.
