Grant Burge presented by Quentin Sadler
The name Grant Burge is synonymous with the Barossa Valley. Grant Burge wines are
not limited to these famous Holy Trinity red wines, Mesach, Shadrach and Abednego,
and include Chardonnay/Pinot Noir Methode Traditionelle sparklers and aged tawny wines.
Grant is a fifth generation member of a winemaking dynasty that has been part of
the Barossa since 1855. Since his company was established in 1988, Grant Burge
Wines has grown to become one of the top 10 privately owned wine companies in Australia.
The wines of Grant Burge have been awarded every medal and major trophy in Australia,
including the prestigious Jimmy Watson Trophy. The Cellar Door, overlooking
the banks of the picturesque Jacobs Creek, was named Vogue Entertaining Winery of the Year.
His belief that fine wines are born in the vineyard and that vineyards are the cradle
of wine quality has led him to develop one of the most extensive networks of premium
quality vineyards in Australia. The most recent vineyard addition is Corryton Park
in the cooler climate of the Eden Valley.
Quentin Sadler is making a welcome return to Charlemagne to present in his unique way
a careful selection showing the diversity and depth of quality of Grant Burge wines.
