The Australian winery Torbreck Vintners was founded in 1994 by Dave Powell.
Torbreck Winery - Dead things awakened to new life
Dave Powell worked for more than 25 years in various well known wineries and gained a wealth of experience in the art of winemaking. At some point he managed to revive old, almost withered vines in Barossa Valley. Only two years later, he was rewarded with grapes that fascinate with an extremely intense aroma. Encouraged by this success, he took courage and founded Torbreck Vintners. At the same time he also saved old overgrown vineyards by convincing local winegrowers not to remove the old gnarled vines and instead lease the vineyard to him. With an age between 40 and 160 years, the vines of Torbreck Vintner are among the oldest in the world. In the meantime the world famous winery has been taken over by billionaire Pete Kight.
Awards from all over the world for the Torbreck Wines
Today, the top sites of Torbreck Vintners occupy an impressive 250 hectares. From the mostly hand-picked grapes, exclusive wines are created with a lot of craftsmanship and great patience, which have been and continue to be awarded worldwide. One reason for this is that the Barossa Valley region is ideally suited for wine growing, but to a large extent it is of course the impressively strong aroma of the wines, as well as the brilliant skills of the winemakers. The intensity, complexity and opulence of the exclusive wines are repeatedly praised. Whether
- Woodcutters Rosé
- Les Amis
- The Steading or
- The Factor
the names of the wines from the winery always have a history as well and usually fit perfectly with the respective wine.
Top wines from the Murray Valley
The estate's vineyards are planted with old Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro vines, among others. Vineyards in the Eden Valley also belong to the estate today. Along the Murray River, in whose extensive valley the grapes partly grow, some of the best wines in Australia are produced. In Eden Valley, however, the climate is somewhat cooler than in Barossa Valley. However, both growing areas benefit from the cool sea breezes.
All wines from Torbreck Vintners have a perfect balance of color, aroma and taste. So tasting these wines is definitely worth it.
