Dutschke Wines

South Australia | Barossa Valley

Our Review

Winemaker and owner Wayne Dutschke set up business with uncle (and grapegrower) Ken Semmler in '90 to produce wine. Since then, Dutschke Wines has built its own small winery around the corner from Ken’s vineyard and the portfolio has increased. While Wayne has now been making small-batch wines for over 20 years, his use of whole-berry ferments, open fermenters, basket presses and a quality oak regime have all remained the same. He was crowned Barossa Winemaker of the Year in '10, inducted into the Barons of Barossa in ’13 and is the author of a children’s book about growing up in a winery, called My Dad has Purple Hands. Exports to the US, Canada, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and Taiwan. -JAMES HALLIDAY
