Schwarz Wine Company

South Australia | Barossa Valley

Our Review

The economical name is appropriate for a business that started with 1t of grapes making 2 hogsheads of wine in 2001. Shiraz was purchased from Jason Schwarz’s parents’ vineyard in Bethany, the vines planted in 1968; the following year half a tonne of grenache was added, once again purchased from the parents. In ’05, grape sale agreements with another (larger) winery were terminated, freeing up 1.8ha of shiraz and 0.8ha of grenache. From this point on things moved more quickly: in ’06 Jason formed a partnership (Biscay Road Vintners) with Peter Schell of Spinifex, giving them total control over production. -JAMES HALLIDAY


Our small-batch wines are curated from an intuitive approach, creating unexpected and lighter style wines that are interesting, creative and sophisticated. Unrestrained from any rules set by science or a 'textbook', our wines are made from understanding the soils and the seasons, allowing us to tell a story about the Barossa through the glass.
