Warmth, honesty and integrity are a way of life at St Hallett. At the heart of our tight-knit crew are winemakers Stuart Blackwell and Toby Barlow, who best exemplify the extensive experience, continuous sense of evolution and respect for the region that underpins St Hallett’s rich Barossa heritage.
Established by the Lindner family in 1944, St Hallett’s initial focus was the production of fortified wines.
The first vintage of Old Block Shiraz in 1980 and its success, accelerated a shift of focus towards the premium table wines St Hallett has become renowned for ever since.
The Barossa consists of two distinct regions, Barossa Valley and Eden Valley. These two Valleys provide our team with a wonderful tapestry of vineyards to create great wine.
By meticulously keeping our parcels separate we have the opportunity to consistently craft fantastic wines as well as to deliver unique wines that represent particular areas of the Barossa.
Stuart Blackwell’s winemaking career spans four decades. Having first dabbled in winemaking in Australia’s McLaren Vale, Stuart was lured to St Hallett in the Barossa in 1972.
As Senior Winemaker of St Hallett, Stuart has developed a deep understanding of the rich tapestry of site and climatic variances in the Barossa and an appreciation of the importance of both dedicated growers and ‘old wine’ Shiraz.
A big believer in enjoyment and armed with a ‘can do’ attitude Stuart’s energy is contagious. Amongst the small winery crew he has imbued a warmth, honesty and integrity which is simply the way of life at St Hallett.
