Ancient Terroir and Great Red Dirt.
South Australia’s Barossa Valley, an hour’s drive north of Adelaide, is one of Australia’s hero wine regions and is a treasure trove of old vineyards the likes of which cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
The home to some of the country’s legendary vineyards, wines and wineries the Barossa was first planted in the 1840s. The old vines, the Mediterranean climate and ancient soils of the Barossa combine to offer the ideal terroir in which to grow grapes of the highest quality. Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache thrive in this wonderful environment.
The Barossa is a complex region with marked differences between different vineyards. Soil, rainfall and temperature vary from site to site giving us a variety of
wine styles. Thanks to previous generations of Kalleskes we are the lucky custodians of vineyards in many of the best Barossa sub-regions including Ebenezer, Koonunga and the Barossa Valley Floor. Many wineries have vineyards in one or other of these sub-regions, few are fortunate enough to have vineyards so widely spread.
Atze’s Corner is proud to be an accredited Freshcare grower. We respect the environment and work to enhance it through all of our vineyard practices. We think of ourselves as caretakers of the vineyard so that for generations to come the soils and vines will yield the best the Barossa can give.
