About the winery
Turkey Flat is tucked away on the edge of Tanunda in the beautiful Barossa Valley, surrounded by historic vineyards dating back to 1847. We look forward to welcoming you to our charming cellar door, a rustic bluestone building that has been lovingly restored from its previous days of the Schulz family butcher shop. Our cellar door is a place for everyone to taste through our current release wines on offer, with the opportunity to sample selected museum stock. Our ‘Wine Food’ menu is available to enjoy daily, with all our wines on offer by the glass and bottle. After a wine tasting we recommend sitting down with some food over a shared bottle in the garden and take in the views or around the fireplace in cellar door, depending on the season. We are open daily from 11am – 5pm (closed Christmas Day & Good Friday) 67 Bethany Road, Tanunda, South Australia 5352

History & Geography
Our name derives from the Prussian settlers of Bethany and Langmeil in the early 1840s. They noticed that a large native bird frequented the rich flats located here towards the lower end of the Tanunda Creek. They called the site ‘Turkey Flat’ as a result. The bird was no turkey: it was Ardeotis australis, or the Plains Bustard, which is sadly rarely seen now. We recognise the significance of the bird and the original landscape it came here for through the artwork on our label. The same landscape supports our vines and gives us the means to make unique, character-filled fine wine. Shiraz was first planted at Turkey Flat in 1847 by Johann Fiedler. Fiedler was one of the first Prussian Lutherans to make wine in the Barossa. He was noted for his early efforts to experiment with grape varietals to test the viticultural viability of the new settlement.
