Head Wines

Years ago, whilst travelling Europe’s great wine growing regions, Alex Head fell in love with northern Rhone Valley Shiraz. Of particular fascination was the Côte-Rôtie “Roasted Slope” region. With pale limestone and mica slopes to the south-west. And brown slopes covered in schist and iron in the north-east.

Alex says he has been blessed to find unique, elevated sites in the Barossa where the geology and climate allows him to explore his take on these Old World styles.
In the Barossa, Eden Valley is his Côte-Rôtie in a New World. Its elevated slopes on an east-west aspect are ideal for exploring Shiraz of contrasting styles.

By following a traditional négociant model, an old practice, he has chosen to work with a number of small growers over having his own vineyards. It’s allowed him to spend years understanding the characteristics, strengths and weaknesses of various sites in pursuit of his own style.

Around three-quarters of the grapes that end up in our bottles are from the carefully selected, elevated vineyards tended by these growers. All of these sites are farmed sustainably using organic principles where possible; yields are controlled and grapes are hand-picked.
