The Barossa Valley is a premium wine region located around 56km from the city of Adelaide. Colonel William Light, an early surveyor, named the valley in memory of the ‘Battle of Barossa’, a famous Spanish war. The diverse nature of the landscape and varied soil types, suit a wide range of grape varieties. Shiraz, Australia’s most famous wine style and the region's signature variety, attracts thousands of wine enthusiasts to visit the Barossa Valley every year.
In 1998, the Barossa Valley vineyard was planted with premium Shiraz vines. Millon Wines now produces celebrated award-winning reds grown in the Barossa Valley. The region's Mediterranean-like climate is ideal for growing red wine varietals and producing balanced grapes. The Valley is renowned for growing grapes with velvety soft tannins that create rich, complex wines, with great aging potential.
The vineyard lies on top of clay, loam and sandy soils, the colours ranging from red-yellow to brown. The varied soil types are the ideal terroir for medium to full bodied wines. The soil defines the distinct taste of the vineyard influencing the flavour properties of the wine. The vineyard produces vibrant wines with deep red colours; each wine an expression of place, a core value for Millon Wines.
At Millon Wines, we craft quality wines from grapes grown in the fertile soils of the Barossa by combining old-world knowledge with contemporary winemaking techniques. At each of our wineries, we own every step of our production — from vine to glass — and pay the utmost care and attention to our local environment and natural resources.
As a Barossa Valley wine company, we create authentic and honest wines that capture the rich flavours of our own Barossa Valley vineyards, where grapes are carefully harvested at their most ripe to retain their natural characteristics. Taking a hands-on approach allows us to produce wines that are true representations of their region, style, and variety.
