A CELEBRATED HISTORY
Originally beginning life in the 1850s as the Glenview winery, Krondorf was taken over by the Dalgetys, a renowned winemaking family, before being bought by innovative winemakers Grant Burge and Ian Wilson in 1978.
Before selling the winery to Mildara wines in the 1980s, the duo implemented many pioneering methods, leading to the brand’s huge success, and it was just two years after the pair sold the winery that Krondorf was awarded Australia’s most acclaimed wine award: the Jimmy Watson Memorial trophy.
Since then, Krondorf wine name has continued to grow, and the brand has along the way picked up many prestigious awards, scooping over 300 wine show medals, including many Gold and Silver awards.
A LANDMARK BAROSSA VALLEY NAME
German settlers established the Barossa Valley in the early 1800s and later that century commenced commercial wine production. Some of the biggest names in wine today ensure this heritage will remain for generations to come.
Koonunga, Seppeltsfield, and Bethany are among many brands that take their name from the region where they were founded. Krondorf is one of the oldest areas in the Barossa with some of the oldest vines in the region – Krondorf wines brand celebrates this history.
Krondorf Road in Krondorf is home to many of Australia’s most recognised and celebrated wineries including Rockford Wines and Grant Burge. It’s recognised, in wine circles, as a prestigious area that produces some of the most awarded wine in Australia, including the Krondorf wine which won the 1980 Jimmy Watson award.
Krondorf wines today are made using a simple philosophy – select the best fruit, from the best vineyards, by the best growers. Krondorf takes fruit from only the best growers across the Barossa Valley region to create wines truly reflective of the region.
