Shobbrook Wines

After travelling Europe, Tom Shobbrook returned to his family vineyards in Barossa Valley in 2007, motivated to produce wines that although Australian, embraced old world techniques and structure.  

Choosing to farm Biodynamically, he has evolved his ideas to be as hands off as possible with as little intervention as possible. There is no sulphur used in the vineyards and only a small amount is added in the cellar before bottling.  All wood used is old and used for fermentation and maturation.

Tom in his first Shobbrook vintage became Gourmet Traveler's winemaker on the rise of the year, proof that Australia is craving something real to drink.
