As a global company, we are carving out new categories and creating a new landscape for Super Premium wines though our award-winning wine brands Oyster Bay and Barossa Valley Estate.
Oyster Bay is the name behind one of the world’s most sought after Super Premium New Zealand wines. The very first vintage in 1990 went on to win Gold and the coveted Marquis de Goulaine Trophy for ‘Best Sauvignon Blanc’ at the London International Wine and Spirit Competition. Oyster Bay’s elegant and fragrant wines have captured the essence and purity of flavour of New Zealand’s maritime climate and alluvial soils – and the hearts of wine lovers the world over.
In over quarter of a century Barossa Valley Estate has established itself as a defining winery of one of the world’s most celebrated wine regions. From the very heart of the Barossa Valley, we make Super Premium red wines that capture the distinctive elegance, finesse and vibrant fruit flavours of this special place. These are created from vines planted in some of the oldest soils on earth, producing small berries and remarkable wines.
