What makes them special?
Flaxman story is one of making the bold move of buying a vineyard (Col did this without tell his wife), moving interstate (she obviously forgave him), changing career paths and building a space to share their passion for this wonderful region and the world class wine & food it produces.
The property consists of Riesling, Shiraz & Semillon - all of which were planted around 1929 or thereabouts. They also purchase fruit from likeminded growers nearby to add to the lineup of wines available. Col and Fi now make the wine onsite with the exception of the Riesling.
Over time, Colin’s first career as a builder has come in very handy at Flaxman. He has built a cellar door, outdoor kitchen, pergola and pizza oven. Once a month, Col puts his cooking hat on and produces a five course degustation of beautiful food which showcases some of the Barossa and South Australia's amazing produce. It's a wonderful day of kicking back and being spoilt with beautiful food and wine and all enjoyed while sitting at the long table overlooking the vineyard.
