Planted in 2012, the established vines are the only commercially grown wine varieties in Barham. With just over two acres under vine, Barham Vines produces around 200 dozen bottles of wine each year. Varieties planted include Shiraz, Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon. Our cellar door is still a little way off but plans are underway and the first of our shipping containers is on site, this will eventually create a beautiful space beneath the gum trees for wine sales. Over time we expect this to be followed by a wine storage space and further facilities.
