First Drop Wines

South Australia | Barossa Valley

Our Review

The First Drop Wines of today has been transformed since its establishment in 2005. It now has its own winery, part of the old Penfolds winery at Nuriootpa, shared with Tim Smith Wines. The group of buildings is called Beckwith Park in honour of the man who did so much groundbreaking work for Penfolds: Ray Beckwith OAM, recipient of the Maurice O’Shea Award, who died in ’12, but not before his 100th birthday. The quality of the First Drop wines would have made Ray Beckwith smile in appreciation. Exports to the UK, the US, Canada, Denmark, Japan, Hong Kong and China.
