Blog full b2a header v3 03

We are very proud of our region within the Barossa -and more so - to be part of the vibrant, growing Bethany to Angaston Trail. This trail brings to you our little community from Bethany (our home, near Tanunda) to the hills of Angaston - where we go to for that amazing shiraz, cheeky little riesling, fresh & fabulous produce straight from the farm, Friday knock-off beer - where we take our own visitors when they come to town. It seemed only fitting to share it with you...

2016 Turkey Flat Rosé -Vive la rosé revolution

Fab colour for drinking in the sun. Smells gently spicy and redcurrant creamy, some raspberry fool too. Excellent lees nuttiness in the mouth, creamy and peppery, then dry and mouth-sucking. Aussie Tavel: and – surprise, surprise – will go great with the turkey. 91/100, Tim White Australian Financial Review December 2016

Bringing new life from the old

Blog full new old vines december 2016 plantings 4839

If you’ve followed the Turkey Flat story you’ll be familiar with our origins as the trial garden for viticulture during Barossa Valley settlement in the 1840s. Furthermore that the protection of the shiraz vines planted during this time was the impetus for the birth of Turkey Flat Vineyards as a winery. A little known adjunct to this story is back when cumbersome tractors replaced the horse and cart, the new machines could no longer fit between the rows of vines. Thus, practicality won out and 4 rows of the Ancestor shiraz 1847 plantings were removed to create access for the tractors. Now modern tractors are far more lithe, and we can access narrowly planted rows, leaving us with bare earth, a sad reminder of what once was. For years we have dreamt of bringing life back to this precious site, and this week we have seen the years of planning and work come to fruition.
