Atzes Corner new cellar door verandah view over the vines


Taste generations of grape-growing tradition ensconced amongst the grapevines at the Barossa Valley’s newest cellar door, Atze's Corner.

Even better, you can watch the sun set over the vineyard during an intimate tasting experience in stylish surrounds.

Atze's Corner’s impressive collection of award-winning wines are now showcased in an architecturally-designed space that has undergone a remarkable transformation from a mezzanine floor to a sleek cellar door that offers breathtaking views over the valley.

It oozes rustic charm, with copper, marble and timber fittings, as well as plush leather seating.

“We wanted our cellar door to maximise the views, especially at sunset. The result is a balcony that points towards the sun as it sets down the valley and overlooks our old vineyards,” says founder, Andrew Kalleske.

"With our wines gaining considerable recognition, we wanted to offer visitors a true wine experience. This spectacular setting provides a symbiotic connection with the vineyards and the winery. By staying open later, this also means we will be the last stop for many on their visit to the Barossa.”

Andrew began his winemaking career in a garage on this property 13 years ago. However, previous generations of this family have been producing grapes in the area since the mid 1800s and on the property’s oldest vineyard planted in 1912. Their flagship wines are still made from those old vines, which were planted by Andrew’s great uncle, Eddie Staehr.

Whilst the stunning views are a main attraction, the stars of the cellar door are most certainly the award-winning and rare, old vine wines that Andrew and team take great pride in producing, all of which are available for tasting and purchase.

“We are open until after sunset so when all of the other cellar doors are closing, ours provides another option,” says Andrew.

“People can buy a glass of wine and a cheese platter made from local produce and sit on the balcony overlooking the original old 1912 vineyard while the sun descends over the stunning Barossa Valley.”

Atze’s Corner now produce wine from mataro, graciano, petit syrah/durif, montepulciano, grenache, cabernet sauvignon and vermentino. (You might need to set aside a few hours for tasting!)
