2019 was a historic year for Kies Family Wines. Not only did we double our vineyard but we built a state-of-the-art winemaking facility for Winemaker Bronson Kies, exactly 50 years after his Grandfather Ken (founder of Kies Family Wines) began making wine in 1969.
We are now offering an exclusive winemaking experience where you can not only tour this incredible facility, but immerse yourself in the winemaking process, by tasting and comparing wines from the barrel, with Bronson Kies exclusively.
Experience the Barossa Valley like a local with our winery and barrel hall tour, tasting and Barossa Valley cheese plate. Tour includes:
Meet and greet Bronson Kies (winemaker), at the Kies Family Wines cellar door at 10:15am and enjoy a welcome glass of bubbles.
Immerse yourself in the winemaking process from grape to bottle, and view the state-of-the-art winemaking facility, hosted by winemaker Bronson Kies.
Tour the barrel hall and let Bronson run you through the two different winemaking styles at Kies Family Wines; unoaked vs oaked red winemaking. While on the tour you will learn more about the Kies family’s history and vineyards.
Don’t forget to capture this exclusive and memorable experience with photo opportunities inside the barrel hall and state-of-the-art winemaking facility.
You will be guided back to the Kies Family Wines cafe with 180-degree views over the Lyndoch Ranges and Kies Estate; for a hosted wine tasting accompanied by a Barossa Valley Cheese Plate.
Duration for tour and tasting: 2 hours
