His family history in the region dates back to 1855, when his great-great-great grandfather John Burge immigrated to South Australia and began work as a winemaker in the Barossa valley. From backyard to vineyard and cricket pitch, Trent grew up a country boy, tearing about the local vineyards on his bike. Earning his keep as a cellar hand in the family winery,
Trent was involved in all aspects of winemaking from a young age. He is now continuing the work of generations before him, while creating his own legacy as a new producer of premium red wines. Trent’s deep understanding of the land plays a key role in the style of his wine, sourcing grapes of the highest quality from specific long-term growers. Trent crafts wines to be classically Barossa in structure and flavour profile, but with a lightness of touch that is resolutely modern.
