When Grant Burge founded his eponymously named business in 1988 with wife Helen, it was agreed that the business would be based on the traditional values of family, heritage and quality.
As a fifth-generation Barossa vigneron, Grant spent his boyhood immersed in the wine industry, watching his father and grandfather build respected wine businesses and learning traditional winemaking techniques. These techniques have served Grant well in his winemaking endeavours, as it is his firm belief that to be a great winemaker you need to understand the relationship between the vineyard and wine, and that this knowledge can only come from hours spent among the vines, cultivating the soil and carefully managing precious water resources.
However, these traditional foundations have not hindered Grant Burge Wines development into one of the most innovative companies in the Australian wine industry, with cutting edge winemaking techniques producing wines of exceptional quality and consistency.
In support of his winemaking expertise, Grant owns a network of vineyards across the Barossa and Eden Valley which provide him with unmatched access to premium quality grapes. This network includes the famous Filsell Vineyard, which was planted in the 1920’s. Located between the townships of Lyndoch and Williamstown, this venerable old vineyard produces fruit of incredible concentration and flavour which forms the base of Grant’s iconic Meshach Shiraz, which is classified as “Outstanding” in the Langton’s Classification giving it recognition as one of Australia’s great wines.
