The Barrgowan Vineyard and Winery is owned and operated by the Simonsen family. Vines were planted in 1994 with the objective of producing a high quality Shiraz for private consumption. This specialisation in Shiraz continues and the high quality is reflected in an impressive list of awards since 1998.
The production is very small from the half acre of vines, 50 cases in 2003 rising to an expected 200 cases in 2010 with no plans to expand further. This will ensure the continued high quality and attention to detail.
The wine matures for over 12 months in the best, ultra fine grained French oak barrels available, and do not blend, filter or fine.
Barrgowan Vineyard do not have a distributor, all wine is sold by word of mouth, mail order or email. Cellar door open by appointment only.
