Ballycroft was originally the name of the cheesery run by sisters Sue EvansÂ and Tracey Skepper.
Waste water was utilisedÂ to irrigate the young vines and whey used as fertilizer. The cheesery ceased operating in 2011 but the distinctive logo still graces the Small BerryÂ wine bottles. The vineyard, planted in 1998Â sits on a slopingÂ 15 acre property in Greenock,Â Western Barossa Valley. In January 2016 Â Ballycroft Vineyard and Cellars opened their Tasting Room, once the production room for the cheese. Join Joe,Â the owner, winemaker, vineyard hand and cellar door manager (or Sue) for a unique and intimate cellar doorÂ experience. Joe is involved in every process of theÂ grapesÂ journey, carefully tending themÂ from vine to bottle and everything inbetween and hasÂ over 25 vintages under his belt. Plus he loves to talk about wine so be prepared to settle in for a while.
