World-class wine

A hidden jewel in the heart of Yorke Peninsula, Barley Stacks Wines is the first commercial vineyard established in the traditional “barley belt”. The combination of rich limestone soil and the mild environment helps to produce strong grain crops and premium quality fruit. Open seven days, Barley Stacks Wines offers tastings of their home grown Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and liqueur Chardonnay. It is just a short drive from Maitland.
