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!

2013 Divine Shiraz
The Divine is the story of outstanding vineyards that need to be recognised. Exceptional fruit that comes in the winery and enlivens our passion with how near perfect the fruit is. It represents the terroir, the climate, the presence of the Barossa in one single bunch. Our job is to find these amazing vineyards that are at an elite quality and make them in a respectful way that lets the vineyards and the fruit speak. Elegant oak, longer maturation time and patience brings with it a truly memorable wine. This story will be ongoing as we push to find more exceptional single vineyards and highlight varieties at their absolute optimum.
