The Shed

The Dutschke brand, originally Willow Bend, started all the way back in 1990, however it wasn’t until 2003/2004 that the Shed was built here atop Gods Hill.

The first Vintage made in the Shed was 2005. A classic vintage with great results, this was also the first year we produced our Sami Cabernet, with Sami herself being just one year old.

More than a decade on, the Shed has been the jack of all trades – it keeps us cool as we work long hours during hot Vintages, it transforms into a dining hall, into a Cellar Door, and then back in to a winery. While big, there’s never enough space, and it’s often a decision between hosting folk or working on the barrels.

Fortunately, just behind our Shed is the old town water tank, which we’re upcycling into a brand new Cellar Door. Stay tuned!

We will be taking a break over the festive season and will return on the 21st of January. Orders can still be lodged online, however they won't be shipped until we return. Thank you to all for another fantastic year, and we look forward to seeing you in The Shed during 2019! Dismiss
