At Artisans, we’re obsessed with promoting consideration for where each wine comes from, and encouraging your appreciation for how it’s made and who made it. All with the singular aim of helping you make sense of Barossa wine, helping you drink better wine, and assisting you to be more adventurous along your wine journey.
There is no wine experience more engaging and rewarding than meeting the people and shaking the hands that have produced what is swirling around in your glass. Our aim is to personally introduce the very best of them to you through our Winemaker in the House program.
They don’t make much, but everything they do produce is the very best it can be.
Our aim is to share the very best of them with you, all of it coming with the Artisans’ guarantee that this is true Barossa craft winemaking in action. As we unearth more great wine makers, we'll share them here.
This is six of the most innovative and interesting wines in the broader Artisans portfolio. If wine drinking were an adventure sport, then this would be all the ammunition required to deliver a thrill seeking ride!
With Wine Maker in the House Chapter two underway, you can now take the latest offerings from Tim Smith in this fanatstic tasting pack.
The texture, complexity and delicacy of Tim Smith Wines is attributed to the consistently exceptional fruit which is sourced from individual pockets of the Barossa Valley’s oldest vineyards. These small-batch, handmade wines truly represent this world-class winemaking region.
