Charles Melton Wines

South Australia | Barossa Valley

Our Review

Charlie, one of the Barossa Valley’s great characters, and wife Virginia, make some of the most eagerly sought-after wines in Australia. There are 7ha of estate vineyards at Lyndoch, 9ha at Krondorf and 1.6ha at Light Pass; the lion’s share shiraz and grenache, and a small planting of cabernet sauvignon. An additional 30ha property was purchased in High Eden, with 10ha of shiraz planted in '09 and a 5ha field of grenache, shiraz, mataro, carignan, cinsaut, picpoul and bourboulenc planted in ’10. They also source from 3 growers in Tanunda. The volume has no adverse effect on the quality of the rich, supple and harmonious wines. -JAMES HALLIDAY

The Kirche @ Charles Melton Wines provides guests with a luxury accommodation experience in the Barossa Valley.
Kirche is German for church. “The Zum Kripplein Christi” Lutheran Church was the centre of village life from 1864 through to the 1950’s. Charlie and Virginia have taken this unique, historical building and tastefully turned it into superb luxury vineyard accommodation without compromising the wonderful warmth and space evident in its origins. Situated on beautiful Krondorf Road, only five minutes from Tanunda, it offers a tranquil setting for either a long term or short term stay in the famous Barossa Valley, well within easy distance of all the Barossa’s charms of great food, wine and architecture.
A simple stroll up the driveway to Charles Melton Wines, this charming unique piece of history allows guests to get lost in our world, relax in this home away from home and enjoy the picturesque vineyard scenery.
A delicious supply of local cooked and continental breakfast provisions, complimentary cheese plate and a bottle of Charles Melton wine all invite you in upon arrival.
We pride ourselves on a product and service that meets your needs and desire, as well as the privacy and seclusion you hope for.
Please, come and join us........ Stay in a piece of Barossa History!!
