The Yelland and Papps story perhaps doesn’t fit in with the usual line spun by wineries in the Barossa - six generations of this, five generations of that. It is a story about new beginnings, a story about a young couple, with a young family, forging their own path within a wine region as first generation winegrowers. While not locals....there is a saying in the Barossa that you have to have a grand-parent “in the ground” before you are considered a local.....Susan Yelland and Michael Papps call the Barossa home and are as passionate as any sixth-generation Barossan about the region, its vines and its history and its characters.
The Divine is the story of outstanding vineyards that need to be recognised.

"Best enjoyed with freshly shucked oysters over summer". What a treat. What a winner!

WHY VEGAN FRIENDLY ?
because clearly, we are not vegans!
So why do we make vegan friendly wines?
B Y S U S A N P A P P S
This is a topic of much discussion in the wine industry at present,
vegan, organic, lo-fi, natural and minimal intervention.
Michael and I have many discussions regarding this and like most
things we feel we never fit in one box fits all. For us this is our
ethos of what we believe in and for our own reasons, not for sales
or trend following, just because we want to do what we believe in.
