Winemaker and owner Wayne Dutschke set up business with uncle (and grapegrower) Ken Semmler in 1990 to produce wine. Since then, Dutschke Wines has built its own small winery around the corner from Ken's vineyard and the portfolio has increased. While Wayne has now been making small-batch wines for over 20 years; his use of whole-berry ferments, open fermenters, basket presses and a quality oak regime have all remained the same. He was crowned Barossa Winemaker of the Year in 2010, inducted into the Barons of Barossa in '13 and is the author of a children's book about growing up in a winery called My Dad has Purple Hands. Exports to the US, Canada, Denmark, Germany, The Netherlands, Taiwan and China.
Dutschke Wines is a small family winery producing premium reds and fortifieds, located in the beautiful Barossa Valley in South Australia.
