Barley Stacks Wines - OPEN 7 DAYS!

Barley Stacks Wines is the first commercial vineyard and winery to be established on the traditional barley belt of the Yorke Peninsula, which is traditionally renowned for growing the world’s best malting barley.

The vineyard was established in 1996 with planting of Shiraz grapes. It then grew as Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay were planted in 2000 and finally Viognier grapes planted in 2001.

The rich grey soil over limestone, which produces the famous barley, has also contributed to the production of premium quality fruit.

Watering of the vineyards using Partial Root Zone Drying (PRD), has allowed production of wines with great intensity that offer fullness of flavour and varietal fruit characters.

All wine produced at Barley Stacks Wines is made from grapes grown in our own vineyards, where it is also crushed, fermented, stored, bottled and distributed from our Cellar door and elsewhere.

The winery is also available for functions:   weddings, birthdays, business meetings are all catered for at the winery.

Our Cellar Door is open seven days a week for tastings from 10am to 5pm except for Good Friday and Christmas Day (other times by appointment only).


 

We are located 13.6km south of Maitland on the Maitland to Minlaton Road then follow the signs to the venue.
