Johann Fiedler moved to Bethany in 1843. It was here on the banks of Tanunda Creek where he planted an experimental garden, orchard & 72 varieties of grapes to see what would thrive best.

The Turkey Flat Barossa Valley White blend is sourced from the Bethany and Stonewell regions of the Barossa. Traditional to Turkey Flat style the Marsanne was picked early and pressed lightly. The Viognier was handpicked, chilled, crushed and saw 48 hours on skins and then pressed lightly. The Roussanne was a little riper when handpicked and subsequently whole bunch pressed.
