In 1887 a boutique winery was established in the small township of Gomersal and over a century later, it is now home to Gomersal Wines. Nestled in the heart of the iconic Barossa Valley, renowned throughout the world for its rich, full-bodied Shiraz, Gomersal Wines embraces the district’s time-honoured and traditional approach to winemaking. This results in wines of exquisite character and intensity, which colourfully reflect the region and surrounding environment.
Complemented by its picturesque cellar door, scenic vineyards, and charming customer service – Gomersal Wines offers an enchanting cellar door experience. Taste our selection of quality regional wines surrounded by views of magnificent gums and vineyards; atop our huge eucalypt hardwood veranda; inside our spacious tall-ceiling tasting room, or in the ‘Barrel Room,’ complete with beautifully handcrafted Oregon tables, while enjoying a delicious seasonal regional platter. Gomersal Wines offers the perfect venue for your next function or event leaves a lasting impression on all who visit.
Lyndoch Road, Gomersal, opposite Cellar Door, on the north western ridge of the Barossa Valley.
Gomersal experience warm to hot summers and cool winters with daytime temperatures ranging from 12C – 45C, and nighttime temperatures ranging from-2C – 30C. Average rainfall in Gomersal area is 400mm per annum.
We find our range of soils at Gomersal quite interesting and exciting, as they vary dramatically throughout the vineyard. We begin with clay over calcerte and slate bedrock, moving to more weathered slate at the bottom of an ancient glacier. Over the hill the soils are deep, sandy loam and black clays. This variety in soil types create some excellent subtle flavours in the grapes, which come through in our wines.
Predominantly trellised Shiraz, about 42 acres, with some bush vine Grenache, 2.5 acres, and Mataro, 5.5 acres.
East-west slopes with predominantly north-south rows, and bush vines growth east-west on a south facing slope.
