James' Review

Vines were first planted at Langmeil (which possesses the oldest block in Australia) in the 1840s, and the first winery on the site, known as Paradale Wines, opened in 1932. In 96, cousins Carl and Richard Lindner with brother-in-law Chris Bitter formed a partnership to acquire and refurbish the winery and its 5ha vineyard (planted to shiraz, and including 2ha planted in 1843). Another vineyard was acquired in 1998, which included cabernet sauvignon and grenache. In late 2012 the Lindner family put a succession plan into action: Richard and Shirley Lindner, and their sons Paul and James, have acquired 100% ownership of the business. In terms of management, little changes, Paul has been chief winemaker and James the sales and marketing manager since the winery began in 1996. Exports to all major markets.

About this winery

Langmeil Winery embodies the ideals inspired by the refinement of knowledge shared from generations of Barossan’s – The Lindner family of Langmeil Winery has been immersed in the Barossa’s culture of farming, food, wine and community for six generations. Our commitment to quality in all aspects is unwavering and any wine that bears the Langmeil name represents our family’s pursuit of excellence in wine and community.

THE HISTORY
The Langmeil property was first settled in 1842 by a pioneering settler Christian Auricht and formed one of the district’s first villages. Auricht migrated from Prussia after being persecuted for his religious beliefs, and fled to the Barossa for religious freedom. His legacy survives through what’s believed to be the oldest known surviving Shiraz vineyard in the world, planted in 1843 by Auricht and today continues to produce fruit for the flagship single vineyard wine The Freedom Shiraz.

TODAY
Langmeil’s award winning premium range is internationally recognized and they are regarded as one of the top premium wine producers in Australia. The young team is dedicated to the success of the winery, driven only by quality in every aspect. Langmeil is a must visit when you are in the Barossa, with stunning grounds and tours showcasing the notable history to thousands of visitors annually.
