Trevor and Marilyn Harch opened the Brockenchack cellar door to the public on Friday 19 October after an official opening for industry guests on Thursday 10 October.
Trevor and wife Marilyn fell in love with the Barossa during numerous visits to the region throughout the 1990s, and in the late 1990s purchased the historic Tanunda Cellars.
In 2007, they bought a single vineyard estate in Keyneton, now known as Brockenchack, and relocated to Eden Valley in 2013 as committed vignerons.
Brockenchack Wines is named in honour the Harch family’s four grandchildren Bronte, Mackenzie, Charli and Jack.
Located at Sawpit Gully Road, Keyneton, the original 1880s cottage turned butcher shop has been transformed into a cellar door, complete with a tasting bar, upstairs wine room and underground cellar.
It complements the luxury bed and breakfast next door, with 360-degree scenic views of vineyard.
“We are excited about this addition to our vineyard as we believe it will provide a unique experience to both complement and complete our Eden Valley wine tourism offering,” proprietor Trevor Harch said.
Brockenchack Wines’ backdrop is the picturesque Eden Valley, and the nearest township is Angaston. Cellar door opening hours are Fridays to Mondays, between 11 am and 4 pm, and wine tastings are available on other days by appointment.
