Winemaker-Charlie Melton, Co-Proprietor

Originally from Sydney but now a Barossa icon, Charlie moved to the valley as a young lad in 1974 and now has over 35 years winemaking experience in the Barossa.

Charlie initially spent time as an apprentice to Peter Lehmann, becoming familiar with the capabilities of the region’s fruit. In the early 80's Charlie joined a small team of like-minded Barossa winemakers whose mission was to revive the under-valued varieties of Grenache and Shiraz . Hence they are still the main varieties that we use today to construct our portfolio of wines.
