Barossa Valley Colonel William Light, the South Australian colony’s Surveyor-General, named the Barossa in 1837 after the site of an English victory over the French in the Spanish Peninsular War.

Although most famous for Shiraz, the Barossa can also produce fragrant and deliciously fruity Grenache blends and beautifully rich, chocolatey Cabernet Sauvignons.

Winery TURKEY FLAT

Turkey Flat, named after the bush turkeys that used to roam freely, was established by fourth generation grape growers Peter and Christie Schulz at their property on the banks of Tanunda Creek. Johann Friedrich August Fiedler, one of the Silesian pioneers brought out by William Angas, planted the first Shiraz vines in 1843. Gottlieb Ernst Schulz, a butcher whose family later ventured into dairy farming, purchased the property in 1865. A modern, Italian designed state-of-the-art winery was built adjacent to the historic bluestone butcher’s shop. Turkey Flat is best known for their Langton's Classified Barossa Shiraz, although their entire range, encompassing the entry level Butcher's Block white and red blends, Rose, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon,are all extremely well-made and offer exceptional value.
