Grant Burge Wines

The Grant Burge Wines story officially began in 1988, when Grant Burge and his wife Helen established the business. However, as with many great winemakers, viticulture was already firmly engrained in the Burge family history, with its roots tracing back to the mid-19th century. Following his forefather’s longtime love of winemaking, Grant has continued to produce quality wines into the 21st century.

Overlooking the stunning views of the Barossa Valley from Krondorf, Grant Burge Wines encompasses a massive 400 hectares of vineyard on-site. Producing approximately 400,000 cases of wine per year, the winery specialises in sparkling, still reds, still whites and fortified wines. In addition to the cellar door, which showcases its outstanding varieties, Grant Burge Wines also offers one of the finest and most awarded fortified collections in Australia at its Illaparra Fortified Wine Store.

Grant Burge Wines has a plethora of awards under its belt, proving it to be at the forefront of the Barossa Valley wine industry. Not only has it been rated five red stars by James Halliday in the Australian Wine Companion seven times in a row, it also won Australia’s Best Sparkling Wine at the 2012 ALIA awards, Best Fortified Wine Producer at the 2012 Decanter World Wine Awards and world champion in the sparkling red wine category at the 2014 Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships.

Grant Burge Wines is a must-visit for any wine enthusiast. In July 2014, the company established a private tasting facility called the Meshach Cellar. This unique building is available for private tastings and functions by appointment. Not to be missed, Grant Burge Wines has proven itself to be a deserving institution in the Barossa Valley region.
