Massena started as an inquisitive venture between friends, entrenched in the enjoyment of the physical process of making wine and transferring this into drinking the finished product. We began in the 2000 harvest, with our roots steeped in Barossa history, but with a vision for creating a new viticultural heritage. Without a set plan, our thirst for knowledge and unbridled enthusiasm became the driving force behind the Massena wine style. Based on drinkability and conviviality, Massena wines are 'lifestyle' wines, they are made with a view that each wine has a context. With food, with friends, for no reason whatsoever, they are there to be enjoyed.

We source traditional Barossa varieties Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro from dedicated growers in the deep red soils of the North Western edge of the Barossa. These include the sub regions of Greenock, Stonewell and Moppa. These rare vineyards host dry farmed, low yielding vines up to 150 years of age. Over time we have been experimenting and trialling new varieties to the Barossa such as Barbera, Dolcetto, Tinta Amarela, Petite Sirah, Primitivo, Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne, Tempranillo, Graciano, Saperavi and Tannat. The varieties we enjoy working with the most are planted on our own ‘Dadds Block’ vineyard and are now integral to our winemaking. 

By using sustainable practices and a complete hands off approach to both the vineyards we tend and the wines we make, each bottle is a pure expression of the sites they are sourced from and the season that has transpired.

Massena The Moonlight Run 2016

The moonlight run was our midnight drive back to the Barossa after working vintage in the Clare Valley in 1999. We would crave a soft slurpy wine to wash down a hard night’s work, so we decided to make our own. We take inspiration from Chateauneuf de Pape wines and this is our take on them.

Massena Tannat 2012

An impenetrable bright purple colour that stains the glass gives the impression of intensity and purity and the wine doesn't let us down. The nose has slight briary and leafy hints before a rush of fresh raspberries fills the nose. Chewy, but supple tannins backed with dense blackberry flavours ensure a gob full of flavour.
