The Burge family owns and operates over 300 hectares of vineyard throughout the Barossa region including central and southern Barossa Valley and Eden Valley. Established vines are expertly nurtured year round, thanks to Grant Burge’s passion for viticulture, and an experienced team of local vineyard hands, some who’ve been working with the family for over thirty years.
At the heart of the Corryton Burge vineyard holdings is the vineyard at Corryton Park Homestead. Situated in the Eden Valley, the property was first planted with vines in 1851. When Grant and Helen Burge purchased this property, they soon discovered its higher-altitude microclimate was ideal for Barossan Cabernet Sauvignon. The cool climate spans across many acres of vineyard in one of the most picturesque spots in Eden Valley.
Over many years the family has built an extensive network of over twenty grape growers, including in non-Barossa regions. Many a business transaction is sealed by a handshake rather than a written contract. This combination of family-owned and grower-sourced fruit allows Corryton Burge to create exceptional quality wines through all the natural vintage variations, year upon year.
“Many grape growers have been loyal to our family for generations of their own. It’s a passion shared over decades.” – The Burge Family
