Originally from Melbourne, Lloyd & his partner Sarah came to Barossa in 2006 for a holiday.
Our love for the Barossa grew over the years – we came back frequently for holidays and Lloyd started studying viticulture.
In mid-2013 we purchased our first vineyard in Cockatoo Valley.
Then at the start of 2015, we moved to Barossa!
And so our wine journey continue on a boutique vineyard in Cockatoo Valley, on a 4.5 acre block with twenty year old Shiraz vines…
