HEROES OF THE BAROSSA | WITH CRAIG STANSBOROUGH & STUART BLACKWELL (WELLINGTON)
A very special evening with two of the greatest winemakers from the Barossa Valley. Grant Burge's family history in the region dates back to 1855, with their outstanding Meschach Shiraz one of Australias most iconic wines. Their chief winemaker Craig Stansborough has been with the company 24 years and was AUS winemaker of the year in 2014. St Hallett has been producing fine wines since it was established in 1944. No one knows the Barossa Valley better than senior winemaker Stuart Blackwell, who has been making wine there for over 40 years. These two produce wines from some of the oldest vineyards in the world. Craig and Stuart know the nuances of the region intimately, the seasons, the soil, and the varieties. They have a deep understanding of the rich tapestry of site and climatic variances, but also an appreciation of the importance of dedicated growers and ‘old vine’Shiraz.
