Ballycroft was originally the name of the cheesery run by Sue Evans and her sister Tracey Skepper.
Waste water was utilised to irrigate the young vines and whey used as fertilizer. The cheesery ceased operating in 2011 but the distinctive logo still graces the Small Berry wine bottles.
The vineyard, hand planted in 1998, sits on our sloping 15 acre property in Greenock, Western Barossa Valley. In January 2016 Ballycroft Vineyard and Cellars opened the Tasting Room, once the production room for the cheese. In 2018 we built our winery, run by solar power, fed by rainwater. In 2019 we purchased our 100% electric Nissan Leaf delivery car 'Zero'. We are small, family owned, sustainable and passionate about our little slice of the Barossa and what we do.
Join Joe, the owner, winemaker, viticulturist and cellar door manager (or Sue) for a unique, fact packed and intimate cellar door experience. Joe is involved in every process of the grapes journey, carefully tending them from vine to bottle and everything in between and has over 25 vintages under his belt.
Plus he loves to talk about wine and solar so be prepared to settle in for a while.
Our Cellar Door - Unique and Personal
We do not have a traditional cellar door, manned all day, as we are either working on the property or somewhere else. We therefore invite you to book a tasting to receive a unique cellar door experience where you can relax, enjoy and appreciate what Ballycroft Vineyard and Cellars has to offer.
