The definitive guide to Australian Wines
The Adams family has been growing grapes at Langhorne Creek since 1891, when the vines at the famed Metala vineyards were planted. Guy Adams is the fifth generation to own and work the vineyard, and over the past 20 years has both improved the viticulture and expanded the plantings. In 1998 they decided to hold back a small proportion of the production for the Brothers in Arms label, and now they dedicate 85ha to Brothers in Arms (40ha each of shiraz and cabernet sauvignon and 2.5ha each of malbec and petit verdot). Exports to the UK, the US, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Singapore, South Korea, Malaysia, Hong Kong and China.

Our family planted their first Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon vines in 1891. This makes the Cabernet Sauvignon the oldest family owned Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in the world and the Shiraz the oldest in the Langhorne Creek region. The original plantings by current owner Guy Adams' great-great grandfather William Formby, led to the estate known as the "Metala" Vineyards, which is recognised as one of the most famous in South Australia. Our business has evolved from five generations of grape growing tradition and, at 300 Ha, is the largest family owned vineyard in the region. Our Brothers in Arms label, released in 1998 to celebrate our history, is produced only from fruit grown on our Metala vineyards. All our wines are entirely estate grown and made. Our wine styles are focused on structure, texture and balance.
We work on an aged release program, ensuring our wines are food ready before release, which gives us a great advantage On Premise.
