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…
