Langmeil Winery in the Barossa Valley officially opened the new
The private tasting room is hidden underneath the restored cobbler’s store and water tank. The cobblers store was built in 1884 as part of the original Langmeil village.
The village also included a blacksmith, a baker and a butcher – all of which were put to use again for the winery’s 172nd birthday celebration last week.
The event also celebrated the release of the 2013 Old Vine Garden collection, which includes The Freedom 1843 Shiraz, Fifth Wave Grenache and Orphan Bank Shiraz.
The wines in the Old Vine Garden range, are made from amazing old vineyards, including vines planted in 1843 by Christian Auricht, an early Lutheran settler. Christian Auricht himself was a blacksmith, and the Langmeil Village still has his blacksmith workshop open for visitors.
