1837 Barossa Winery

Category: Wine Tours

1837 Barossa is an iconic Australian wine producer that commemorates the date on which Colonel William Light, founder of Adelaide and first Surveyor-General of South Australia named the Barossa in December 1837. The Barossa Colonel Light Monument, a life-size bronze monument of Colonel Light on horseback and the iconic Barossa Manor honour the birthplace of Barossa on the estate.

Generations of our winemakers have dedicated their work to our grand tradition, embodying our heritage of outstanding wine-making in every bottle. We produce extraordinary wines of distinction. As such all our wines wear a cordon sash. The cordon sash recalls the uniform decorations of 1837. It is a sign of extraordinary achievements. Our logo symbolizes Colonel William Light on horseback while pointing towards the Barossa Range when naming them in 1837.

Described as a Mediterranean climate, Barossa typically experiences cool, wet winters and warm, dry summers which is ideal for grape growing. Our red varieties are grown in the Barossa Valley, and reserve red wines hail exclusively from the estate near Lyndoch on 190m elevation. The characteristic estate soil consists of a very small top layer of red brown silty clay on a bed of creamy limestone. A soil profile which makes the vines work very hard and rewards with a well-structured flavor profile full of tannins. Our white varieties are grown in the cool climate of Eden Valley on 485m elevation in fertile sandy loam over deep soil with organic matter. Our vineyards are sustainable practice certified. Certification is granted by NASAA Certified Organic (NCO). Viticulture is overseen with a philosophy of minimal chemical input.
