Calabria Family Wines open Barossa Valley Cellar Door Estate

Published:  05 February, 2019

Calabria Family Wines is set to open its Barossa Valley Cellar Door Estate this week.

Described as a “picturesque Barossa landmark” the estate is located on the outskirts of Tanunda and 10 hectares of shiraz and cabernet sauvignon vines, a modern cellar door tasting bar and a restaurant.

“As a family, we saw the Barossa as Australia's equivalent to the Napa or Bordeaux regions which supports our vision of pursuing a more diverse and premium wine portfolio,” said managing director Michael Calabria.

“This is such an exciting time for us and we have to thank our dad, Bill, for pouring hours into the care of the vineyard and refurbishment of the cellar door. He has an affinity with the Barossa and the whole community has been exceptionally generous and supportive.”

The Calabria Family already operate three Barossa Valley vineyards including the 2012 purchase of ‘The Sophie Vineyard’ and the 2010 purchase of ‘The William Vineyard’, originally planted by the Hahn family in 1914 and the source of their new vintage release, Calabria The Iconic Reserve Shiraz 2014.

The tasting bar will open on 7 February from 11am to 6pm. The restaurant will be open seven days a week from 11.30am with food by Harvest Kitchen, which will remain in residence.

“We are looking forward to partnering with the Harvest Kitchen team to continue to bring you honest and flavoursome food and wine of the Barossa Valley,” said Calabria.
