Ballycroft Vineyard & Cellars

South Australia | Barossa Valley

James' Review

This micro-business is owned by Joseph and Sue Evans. Joe's life on the land started in 1984 and he later obtained a viticulture degree from Roseworthy. Between '92 and '99 he worked in various capacities at Rockford Wines, and since then at Greenock Creek Wines. Joe and Sue are a two-person band, so would-be visitors to the cellar door would be wise to make an appointment for a personal tasting with one of them. Groups of up to eight people are welcome.

About

Ballycroft Vineyard and Cellars is a micro business owned by Joe and Sue Evans in Greenock, Western Barossa Valley. With 23 vintages under his belt so far, learning his trade at the school of Rockford and Greenock Creek Wines, Joe branched out on his own in 2011 to concentrate on Ballycroft. True to his logo, 'Small Winemaker, Big Wines' Joe makes big traditional Barossa Reds for ageing. Limited production makes these wines hard to come by but worth seeking out.
