Just one hour’s drive from South Australia’s capital, Adelaide, lies its gourmet capital (and wine Mecca), Barossa. One of the country’s most beautiful and historic wine regions, Barossa is a magnet for lovers of fine food and wine. Its classic Mediterranean climate, and free-draining red brown soils, makes the region ideal for growing grapes. Barossa produces excellent Shiraz, Cabernet, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Riesling and Semillon.
Growing up in the Barossa Valley, winemaker Richard Mattner was never far from wine. His grandfather's vineyard at the highly-regarded Light Pass district was Richard's playground during the school holidays. Upon leaving school, Richard gained employment as a cellar hand and began a career in the wine industry in 1993. Richard was destined to be a winemaker and in 2004 he graduated from Charles Sturt University with Bachelor of Applied Science (Wine Science). Richard says winemaking is an art and just another way of creatively expressing himself. In addition to his passion for red wine, Richard has a keen interest in all things sports and loves nothing more than to relax with friends and enjoy a char-grilled scotch fillet on the barbeque perfectly matched with a bottle of wine, of course.
