Three Brian's Grenache vine

More Grenache, Please

There are two days on the calendar that really excite me above all else as far as the wine year is concerned: picking day for the Three Brians Grenache grapes and… International Grenache Day!   Three Brians picking day is the chance to finally hold the little Grenache bunches, that Craig and his dad (Brian) have looked after for months, …

Izway - Aglianico Vineyard

Angelo the Aglianico

Like all of our wines, there is a back story to ‘Angelo’. The wine is named after Craig’s great mate, and our concreter to the stars, Angelo Bertin. After Angelo and his team did such an outstanding job on our winery and cellar door construction, we thought it only fitting to name a wine after him made from an Italian …

Vintage number 14 at Izway Wines

After 18 vintages making wine I still get just as excited at this time of the year as I did back in Sonoma ’99 when I completed by first. (For the math’s geeks, one year I crammed in three vintages and I missed the 2013 vintage.) There is nothing quite like the first fruit arriving at the winery, tasting the …

Grenache picking

Harvest life shared with family & friends

It’s 6:30am Sunday morning, hubby draws back the curtains to reveal a sunny autumn morning with just the hint of a breeze. With a twinkle in his eye he says “Happy Three Brian’s Day”. Such is the excitement to pick our own little patch of the Barossa we leap out of bed, grab our snips and stroll the few meters …

Cellar Door is OPEN

Ten years ago we acquired 8 acres of beautiful land on Seppeltsfield Rd on the western ridge of the Barossa Valley and our vision has always been to open a cellar door in which people could sample our hand crafted wines. Being a small business and hands on in every aspect (including managing the project and building the cellar door) …

Preview to Vintage 2016

With vintage around the corner and the Izway wines cellar door about to open we thought a few days at the beach would be the perfect place to unwind before the mayhem of vigneron life took hold for the year. As we huddled in our flimsy cabin the wind and rain belting down outside it felt strangely like winter in …

Merry Christmas

For us this Christmas is all about spending time with family and friends. The hectic schedule of vintage, pruning and running a small business not to mention this year’s building project means that our loved ones haven’t seen a lot of us this year. Christmas is the one time of the year where we slow down, reflect on the year’s …

Lucky Escape

What a difference a week makes. Outside the temperature is a comfortable 22°C and there is a gentle breeze. This is quite a contrast to last week’s hot and windy conditions which saw a bushfire rage through the mid north of SA. Last Wednesday looking out to the South West we could see there was trouble brewing. Out on the …
