Barossa’s newest winery full of character

The Barossa’s newest winery embodies plenty of character complete with a shiraz vineyard, cottages that date back to 1888 and brand new winemaking facilities that are full of potential.

RedHeads Wine is the Barossa Valley’s latest wine venture however, their principles of winemaking trace back to the “olden days” - tiny batches, hands-on, the way wine used to be done.

Ahrens have played a key role in helping the new winery take shape, with the design and construct of a new winemaking and barrel storage facility.

The main purpose-built structure spans 1,850m2 to provide ample space for the winery’s tanks and barrels where they sort, crush, ferment and age all their wines on site.

A secondary smaller 160m2 shed was also erected on-site.

Ahrens scope of works included all site clearance, earth works, footings, steel erection, cladding, concrete floors, and electrical, fire and plumbing works.

Whilst RedHeads had already made a name for themselves as quality South Australian winemakers, including their previous studio winery at McLaren Vale, this is their first full-fledged winery and vineyard.

The purpose-built facilities by Ahrens will allow the winemakers to give the fruit the special treatment it deserves so it can go on to form wines of true individuality and character that are signature to RedHeads Wine.
