About Schwarz Wine Co.

Our aim is simple; to create a portfolio of vibrant hand-crafted wines from Barossa Valley old vines where the finished products represent the vineyard and the vintage they came from. Our small-batch wines are not mainstream – they are new-age expressions of Barossa classics, designed to allow the fruit to speak for itself and tell a story through the glass.

My instincts led me back home to the Barossa. Initially working as a cellar hand, I found being behind the scenes in wineries felt right – like a sixth sense when I worked with grapes.

A winemaking friend noticed this and encouraged me to start my own label. With this push I bought grapes from my parents and Schwarz Wine Co. was born in 2001.

Since then, I have developed a close network of growers from various pockets across the Barossa region. Their individual microclimates and soils deliver different characters in the wine. I love nothing more than walking the rows with the growers through the seasons, kicking the dirt and tasting the fruit.

My aim is simple, to have a strong connection with my growers and their grapes, understand the seasons and the soils and to create a collection of vibrant hand-crafted wines representing the vineyard and the vintage they came from without the influence of a winemaker’s “textbook” or technology interfering with the grapes’ authentic flavour.

I began with classic styles, but my intuition pushed me to become creative, finding synergies in the grapes’ flavours to create unique wines and use innovative yet natural methods, such as working with whole bunches. My aim is to produce wines that reflect the Barossa’s soils and seasons.
