Calabria opens Barossa Valley cellar door

Calabria Family Wines has strengthened its commitment to the Barossa Valley by opening a cellar door in the renowned wine region. 

The picturesque Barossa landmark, previously leased by Artisans of Barossa, is situated in the outskirts of Tanunda and comprises a modern cellar door tasting bar, restaurant and 10 hectares of Shiraz and Cabernet
Sauvignon vines.

Managing Director, Michael Calabria said: “We wish Artisans of the Barossa all the best on their new venture, as they open the doors to their new wine room and bar VINI LOKAL in Tanunda.

“They have been instrumental in bringing a new era of wine and food to the cellar door in the Barossa Valley.”

Third-generation siblings Frank, Michael, Andrew and Elizabeth Calabria have eagerly anticipated welcoming
visitors to the estate, with its spectacular views of the Valley, modern tasting facilities – to showcase their growing portfolio of Barossa vintages – and food by popular 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.” Michael Calabria said. 

The close-knit family was drawn not only to the Barossa Valley’s renowned reputation but its warmth and synergy to their Riverina base. Established in 1945 with a story that spans over 70 years, the Riverina is home to their award-winning wines including the Three Bridges label and Italian varietal range, Calabria Private Bin.

Michael Calabria noted: “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.”

“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.”

Calabria Family Wines are already the proud custodians of three premium 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.”

Calabria Family Wines Barossa Valley Estate is situated on the corner of Magnolia &andLight; Pass Rd, Vine Vale. The wine tasting bar is open daily from 11am until 6pm. Harvest Kitchen is open seven days for lunch from 11:30am and late Friday and Saturday evenings.
