Soul Growers

South Australia | Barossa Valley

Our Review

Friends and partners Paul Heinicke, Stuart Bourne (winemaker, ex Château Tanunda) Tom Fotheringham (sales and marketing, ex Penfolds) first met while all working at Barossa Valley Estate. Soul Growers source from multi-generational family growers (13 in total) in Moppa, Ebenezer, Kalimna, Vine Vale, Eden Valley and Nuriootpa with pocket-handkerchief vineyard blocks of mataro at Nuriootpa and grenache at Krondorf. Exports to the UK, Singapore, Malaysia and China.


Soul Growers stands for everything that is great about the Barossa; shared wisdom, new ideas, mateship and a passion for making and enjoying great wine. It was born out of a friendship of three dedicated souls who saw the opportunity to join forces and chase their dream of creating wines and a brand that reflected their view of the Barossa. Owners Paul Heinicke, Tom Fotheringham (ex Penfolds/Barossa Valley Estate) and Stuart Bourne (ex Chateau Tanunda and Barossa Valley Estate), had worked together previously in a corporate world but were convinced that their future would one day be an uncomplicated, hand made and lovingly nurtured winemaking enterprise, that revolved around the very core of the Barossa Valley – the growers - who toil each day to produce beautiful fruit, just waiting to be made into wine.

We see the grape growers of the Barossa Valley as being the very soul of the region, hence our name. Our goal is to let the vineyards we work with show through in our wines. Where nature provides, we only guide. With this in mind we strive to make sure Soul Growers wines emphasise the regional and varietal flavours of our beloved Barossa Valley. The essence of what we strive for is to ensure a lifestyle that is good for the Soul; wine, food, family, music, mates and fun.
