About

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 four 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) & Leigh Underwood (Hentley Farm and Murray St Vineyards) 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.
