Langmeil Winery, situated in the heart of the picturesque Barossa Valley in South Australia is a spectacular fusion of timeless tradition, innovative spirit and regional distinction. Spanning over a lush expanse, it takes its name from the historical hamlet of Langmeil, which was established by German migrants in the 1840s.
Its wagon-wheel-barred gates open onto rows upon rows of flourishing vineyards offering a splendid panorama. Undoubtedly, the star attraction of Langmeil Winery is its Freedom Vineyard, renown for being the oldest surviving Shiraz vineyard in the world. Planted in 1843, these rare, gnarled vines deliver the most beautifully complex and concentrated fruit.
Throughout its history, Langmeil Winery has been steadfast in its devotion to old-world winemaking techniques: hand-pruning, hand-picking and traditional open vat fermentation have all played a vital role in crafting high-quality vintages year after year. At the same time, the winery does not shy from employing cutting-edge methodology when it comes to sustainability, conservation and reducing waste, creating a balance that has won it an esteemed reputation.
From their rich, full-bodied Shiraz, elegant Cabernet Sauvignon to the crisp Rieslings known for their bright acidity and mineral characteristics: Langmeil's offerings are a testament to the terroir's unique characteristics. Brilliantly crafting wines that reflect the soul of the Barossa Valley is indeed, a task that the winery achieves with aplomb.
