Barossa Valley

Red 5 Star Rated Winery – By James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion

To anyone that has met Kym Teusner and Mick Page, it would come as no surprise to discover that Teusner
Wines was conceived over a few beers at the local pub. An overseas study trip and a few vintages working
for other wineries back home had filled them both with a love for old vine Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz.
Then a chanced overheard conversation between a couple of Barossa grape growers about an old vineyard
facing the chop demanded they come up with a rescue plan. Scratching together a bit of cash, the fruit
found a new home, the old vines stayed in the ground where they belonged and Teusner Wines came to life.

Teusner’s philosophy comes down to three simple words. True. Righteous. Pleasure.

Be true to the growers and reward their hard work by paying them well. Let the righteous flavours found
in the old Barossa vineyards take centre stage in the wines. Bring pleasure to those that put their hand in
their pocket to buy them. It’s a simple approach, but one that has gained Teusner an army of fans and had
the commentators and critics singing the praises of his wines as modern day benchmarks for the Barossa.
