David and Mardi Hall fell in love with the Eden Valley in the mid 1990s and purchased the Avon Brae property with its historic homestead in 1996. Avon Brae dates back to the 1840s when the Eden Valley was first settled. The Eden Valley is regarded by many as “the jewel in the crown” of the Barossa. Its rugged beauty and cool climate provide ideal conditions for the production of high quality Riesling and elegant red wines.
The Avon Brae vineyard is planted between rocky outcrops and magnificent old red gums and is shared with the resident kangaroos and emus. Plantings include the red varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc and the white varieties of Riesling and Viognier. David and Mardi’s vision has been, and always will be, the pursuit of excellence. First, select the very best parcels of fruit from the hand tended vineyard. Then give a free reign to a winemaking team that benefits from the of wisdom and experience that comes with a lifetime spent living and working in the Eden Valley. Finally, ensure the packaging befits the product – a striking collection of labels and taint free closures that confirm the super premium quality within each bottle and carton.
We are proud to offer our handcrafted Eden Hall wines displaying the best possible characteristics of the Eden Valley with intensity of flavour, finesse and elegance.
