“We bought a cottage, a shed, and a vineyard. A slice of Barossa paradise, and home to Yelland & Papps. Somewhere to indulge an obsession and be masters of our destiny in wine. Serving as a roof over our heads and a place to fulfil shared ambitions.
Barossa is a very good place to make wine, and with the support of grape growing families such as Materne, Sonntag, Schild and Modra we aim to make the best we can. In the winery we’re easily drawn to older, slower, more traditional approaches. Hard work for sure, but ways that allow us to adapt to each challenge and apply what we learn. Gently testing the boundaries of our winemaking world as we pursue our goal to craft elegant Barossa wines. Sophisticated, precise, beautiful and age worthy wines that can connect people to a place and a community of artisans and farmers. Allowing them to appreciate the craft and human endeavour required to make wine to enjoy.”
