The Colonial Estate is based in the Barossa Valley in South Australia, near to Adelaide. In 2002 they started buying small blocks of vineyards in the northern ‘arc' of the Barossa Valley in South Australia, drawn there by 120 year-old dry-grown vines which only a place that has never seen phyloxera can produce.

The Colonial Estate approach to making wine in Australia has been French influenced, so it is this ethos that guides them. Handpicking, sorting tables, wooden vats, etc separates Colonial Estate from most Australian wineries.

The view from one of the vineyards over a nineteenth century church reminded the founders of Pomerol and therefore they built the main winery there in the style of the early-settler period. Stone facing and a galvanised roof reflect local tradition but mask a modern, temperature-controlled winery that has been completely equipped from France.
