Overview

The fruit for our Non Vintage Blanc de Noirs is predominantly sourced from the cooler climate regions of the Adelaide Hills in South Australia and the Alpine Valley in Victoria, both premium wine growing regions of Australia. These grapes are delicately flavoured and exhibit a naturally high acidity that is required to make high quality sparkling wine in the tradition of Champagne.

The Pinot Noir grapes are carefully handpicked into 200 kilogram crates to minimise maceration of grape bunches during transport. On delivery to the winery the crates are placed in refrigerated rooms to chill the fruit to 4C. These cold temperatures minimise oxidation and phenolic extraction during pressing process. The whole bunches are then loaded directly into the bag press and gently squeezed to produce a clear, fine jiuce fraction. The juice is then clarified and inoculated with native Champagne yeasts to ferment at cool temperatures. The blend spends 36 months on tirage before disgorgement and liqueuring.

History and Tradition

Grant Burge is a fifth-generation Barossa Vigneron. Throughout his career, Grant has been one of the most respected and innovative forces in the Australian wine industry. The history of the Burge family and their long association with winemaking in the region can be traced back to March 1855, when noted tailor John Burge immigrated to the Barossa from Hillcot, near Pewsey in Wiltshire, England with his wife Eliza and their two sons. With help from his sons Meshach and Henry, John’s farm flourished with wheat, sheep and viticulture. His eldest son Meshach continued the farming tradition and was a prominent community leader. He married Emma in the early 1900s and they had eight children. First-born Percival established the Wilsford Winery in 1916, beginning the Burge winemaking tradition. Percival had two sons, Noel and Colin, and Colin and his wife Nancy had one son, Grant. Following in the footsteps of his father and forefathers before him, Grant now carries the winemaking tradition into the 21st century

Family Owned

Grant Burge Wines was formed in 1988 by Grant and his wife Helen, and is located in the heart of the Barossa Valley on the banks of Jacob's Creek and is still proudly family owned. Continuing the family tradition, Grant and Helen have now brought the sixth generation into the fold. Eldest son Toby is the company’s Vineyard Manager, upholding the premium quality and consistency of fruit produced from the vineyards. Amelia joined the Marketing Department in an assistant role early in 2007, and in late 2008 went out into the world to gain more experience to bring back to the company later on in her career. Trent, the youngest, has been part of the hardworking cellar team at the Illaparra Winery since vintage 2006. All three children share Grant and Helen’s vision to continue this long family tradition of bringing exceptional wines to the world.

“I am a romantic, and I have a real sense of my family history, of my father and grandfather, and what they achieved.” Grant Burge
