Burge Family Winemakers
An innovative, family winemaking firm, est. 1928, and today run by the founder's grandson Rick, one of the first to promote the concept of terroir - a sense of place, through his single-vineyard labels 'Draycott' and 'Olive Hill'.
Also one of the first to embrace organic viticulture, and coupled with hand-pruning/hand-picking, his wines show purity and finessse yet still retaining the unique Barossa richness. Stand-out wines include Draycott and Olive Hill reds, Olive Hill Semillon and Garnacha.
