Born out of five generations of growers and an unrivaled
devotion to the land, Grant Burge Wines are made for sharing.
Grant Burge Wine is a gift to share and mark special moments in life. Combining our intrinsic knowledge of the land and winemaking to produce a progressive and varied portfolio of wines that encourage people to explore, share and leave their mark.
The Burge family planted their roots in the Barossa Valley in the 1800s inspiring five generations of devoted vignerons. After years of working on the family’s vineyard, Meshach Burge, the eldest son, decided it was time to branch out from the family business, away from viticulture and into the world of agriculture. Meshach could not shake his innate love of grape growing, wine and winemaking. In 1865 he installed fermenting tanks in one of his sheds, intending to create wines that he could share with his friends and family. Out of his generosity came what is today the Grant Burge brand.
What drives us to consistently over-deliver is this ethos of always wanting to give more than expected. By staying true to our heritage and remaining unbound by existing norms, we relentlessly pursue avenues of evolution. We use our intrinsic knowledge of the land and winemaking to craft generous wines that inspire generosity in others; encouraging them to share in the giving moment of Grant Burge Wines.
