Barley Stacks Wines was the first commercial vineyard and winery to be established on the traditional barley belt of the Yorke Peninsula, South Australia.
A short drive away from the historic town of Maitland, Barley Stacks Wines offers visitors a unique Australian experience unlike any other. The wine produced at Barley Stacks Wines is made from the grapes grown in the Barley Stacks Wines vineyards, which are crushed, fermented, stored and bottled right on site. This onsite process allows for strict quality control of all facets of wine production. The vineyard has a strong focus on environmental sustainability and ensuring leading edge technology is utilized to maintain consistently high quality wines.
The Barley Stacks Wines Cellar Door and Function Centre is open 10am-5pm 7 days a week. Tasting experiences, as well as pizzas and cheese platters are also available 7 days a week.
The vines were planted in 1996 by the Gregory family including Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Viognier and the winery has been owned and operated by the Schulz family since 2008.
The rich grey soil over limestone, warm maritime climate, increased row spacing, heavy mulching, bird net protection, hand pruning and careful picking all contribute to the production of premium quality fruit which offer fullness of flavour and varietal fruit characteristic.
