Two interwoven threads run through the generations of Scholz families who have lived there - healing and grape growing, making our winery and vineyard quite unique. Our wines are 100% Barossan and sourced entirely from our own single vineyard at Light Pass.

Wolf Blass, SA  97 Sturt Highway, Nuriootpa SA 5355
Paying homage to Wolf Blass Black Label, the most iconic red blend in the Wolf Blass stable, the Cellar Door showcases the world's only collection of every Black Label vintage since the winery's inception in 1973. The wall is a tribute to the Black Label's unprecedented Jimmy Watson success, Australia's most prestigious and sought after wine award. Visitors can taste 'Black from the Barrel', two individual components directly from the barrels, alongside the current vintage Black Label Cabernet Shiraz. Adding to the Cellar Door's charm, visitors can marvel over a life size artwork, titled 'Wolfie', oil and acrylic on canvas, 2014, by one of Australia's most recognised artists and fellow South Australian, David Bromley. The painting was created as a celebration of Wolfgang Blass 80th birthday.
