About Artisans of Barossa
Formed in 2005, Artisans of Barossa is a group of five wineries who share a like-minded approach to winemaking and wine enjoying. The collaboration of Hobbs of Barossa Ranges, Schwarz Wine Company, John Duval Wines, Sons of Eden and Spinifex Wines represents a determined and heart felt commitment to work together to encourage and promote the art of small batch, sub-regional Barossa winemaking.
Building upon their collective winemaking skill and experience, knowledge of the vineyard landscape and connections throughout the local wine community, this partnership of great winemakers – each in their own right a 5 star rated winery by James Halliday - is a considerable force.
Whilst the purpose of Artisans is to encourage and promote individual expression in Barossa winemaking, our producers equally relish opportunities to work together.
Vino Lokal Barossa Wine Room & Bar is open from 12 noon every day. From 12pm – 5pm, every wine from our artisan winemakers - John Duval Wines, Hobbs of Barossa Ranges, Spinifex Wines, Schwarz Wine Company and Sons of Eden – is available for tasting and purchase. Tastings are presented in flight format which we think is a fun and educational way of exploring and discovering the world of small batch, sub regional winemaking. Tasting plates featuring tasty morsels of local cuisine are available to accompany your tasting.
Vino Lokal also offers all-day dining, lunch, dinner and wine bar service from a menu created by Director of Cuisine Ryan Edwards, formerly of the one hat Appellation Restaurant at The Louise. Check our website Vinolokal.com for the latest wine list and menu, and current opening hours. Please follow us on Instagram and Facebook at @vinolokal for regular updates.
Vino Lokal has been awarded “Best Tasting Experience – Barossa Valley” in the Gourmet Traveller WINE’s Best Cellar Door Awards 2019.
Artisans of Barossa will open a new Barossa culinary and wine tasting centre in the heart of the Barossa vineyard landscape in 2020.
Artisans of Barossa was originally formed with a desire to chart new ground in wine styles and flavours, secure the region's reputation for hand-crafted excellence while also aknowledging the contributions of those who came before us.
Barossa - Our Home
"There can be little doubt that if Australia has a regional wine story that has resonance around the world then it is The Barossa. Comprised as it is of Barossa Valley and its elevated, beautiful high country, Eden Valley.
But The Barossa is more than just a wine region, it is also a vital culture of generational fine wine endeavour, pioneering European influence, gastronomic excellence and strong community spirit. Above all, it is pride in a local sense of purpose and belonging". -Excerpt from the Barossa Chapters.
