Dorrien Estate is Australia's best-kept secret. A contract winemaking facility, it specialises in small parcels of premium boutique wines for Australian growers and winemakers. Most are small batches of only 1000 cases. Dorrien Estate has the ability to crush 16,000 tonnes of fruit and warehouses nearly half a million cases of finished wine. The tank farm in this impressive winery can hold 8.9 million litres of wine, while nearly three million litres of wine are stored in 10,000 oak hogsheads. Dorrien Estate is also the Barossa's only certified organic winery.
Progressive and innovative, the winery is considered a benchmark in Australia for its professionalism and its integrated use of technology alongside good, old-fashioned winemaking techniques.
Dorrien Estate wines are exclusively distributed by Cellarmaster Wines or phone 1800 500 260 (outside Australia +61 2 9333 8000) to talk to one of their wine consultants.
