Steve and Cecilia Schubert are primarily grapegrowers, with 12.8ha of shiraz and 1.2ha of viognier. They purchased the 25ha property in 1986, when it was in such a derelict state that there was no point trying to save the old vines. Both were working in other areas, so it was some years before they began replanting, at a little under 2ha per year. Almost all the production is sold to Torbreck. In 2000 they decided to keep enough grapes to make a barrique of wine for their own (and friends') consumption. They were sufficiently encouraged by the outcome to venture into the dizzy heights of two hogsheads a year (since increased to four or so). The wine is made with wild yeast-open fermentation, basket pressing and bottling without filtration. In 2016 Schubert Estate opened a cellar door in Adelaide in a renovated stone villa. Exports to Germany, Malaysia, Hong Kong and China.
Schubert Estate began originally in the early 1900s when a Schubert family settled on Roennfeldt Road. When Steve Schubert took over the Arthur Schubert's property in the early 1980s he found it derelict and with many of the vines were beyond saving. Steve began with the task of renovating the old iron-stone house and sectioning off eight acres of land to begin re-establishing it. The Schuberts established their vineyards with a clear intention of working with, rather than against, nature. The philosophy behind planting the lands in proportions of approximately two thirds vineyards and third South Australian native trees, grasses and shrubs was to ensure a natural corridor for wildlife, land sustainability and a pleasant vista. With planting completed in 1999 the tractor shed was converted into a small winery. Over the years Schubert Estate wine production has increased and now offers Cellar Door wine tasting at their Kensington Road Rose Park offices.
Schubert Estate's speciality wine is Goose-yard Block Shiraz, first produced in 2000 it has remained the flagship wine. Why Shiraz? This is Australia’s highest profile wine style, and arguably its best red wine - but most of all because growing Shiraz is what the Roennfeldt Road Marananga vineyards do best and even more so, the Schuberts just really love drinking it!
