RedHeads Wine

Small batch, hands-on winemaking. Wines made sustainably in the Barossa Valley. No two wines are the same. Join the movement.

About the winery
RedHeads wine is about grape liberation. We find the best vineyards and 'liberate' them, a few rows at a time, from the big guys, the large commercial wine companies. We bring the grapes into the winery and give them the attention they deserve; small batch, hands-on production with minimal intervention. We use a wide range of varieties and craft wines of true individuality and character through this process. Wines with a personality that are made to be enjoyed. Sustainability is at the forefront and we use state-of-the-art water and power management practices throughout. In 2019, RedHeads Wine won the 2019 Drinks Business UK Green Award for Water Management. Our Studio Bar Cellar Door is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday with no appointment necessary. PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19, our Studio Bar is temporarily closed to visitors.

History & Geography
It all started out with a bunch of Aussie winemakers heading over to France to show the old dogs some new tricks. Australian wine had taken the world by storm in the 1970s and 1980s so el patrón, Tony Laithwaite, decided to get some Aussies over to France. From there the RedHeads seed was sown for a new wave in winemaking.​ In a small shed in McLaren Vale, a former Indian restaurant, a few of us winemakers took on the mission. Back then it was about breaking free from corporate shackles to come and make “real” wines. Tiny batches, hands-on, the way it used to be done. There have been a couple of Studio wineries over the years. McLaren Vale (Foggo Rd, Chalk Hill Rd) and in the Barossa (Lyndoch, Light Pass, Tanunda, Angaston) - but the principles remain the same. We still hold onto that benchmark quality, making limited batches, but now we’re also about grape liberation.
