John Duval Wines

For over 100 years the Duval family supplied grapes to South Australia’s best winemakers. Knowledge of the vineyard handed down through five generations, allied with a 30 year career at the pinnacle of Australian winemaking, are the foundations of John Duval Wines. Each wine is made from fruit sourced exclusively from exceptional old Barossa vineyards, their distinctive style defined by elegance and structure.

THE FAMILY FARM
Established in the second half of the 19th century at Morphett Vale to the south of Adelaide, five generations of the Duval family managed their vineyards and operated a world famous sheep stud. The vineyards supplied Shiraz grapes and vine cuttings to Penfolds, setting in place the directional markers of John Duval’s future – to become the first family member to transition from growing grapes to making wine.

THE PENFOLDS YEARS
John Duval graduated from Adelaide University’s Roseworthy College in 1973, and secured a coveted winemaking role with Penfolds for the 1974 vintage. Over the next 12 years John was mentored by Grange creator Max Schubert and Penfolds Chief Winemaker Don Ditter, before himself assuming the position of Chief Winemaker in 1986. In doing so, John became only the third Chief Winemaker responsible for producing Australia’s greatest red wine – Penfolds Grange.

THE NEXT CHAPTER
After 29 years at Penfolds John sensed the need to embark on a personal wine project. A new challenge that would allow him to be involved first hand from vineyard to glass, and provide an opportunity to build something for his family. John Duval Wines began in 2003 with the aim to perpetuate the story of a South Australian wine family through a collection of structured and elegant wines made from fruit grown in exceptional old Barossa vineyards.

Come and join us as we savour five outstanding wines with Tim.

It’s a MUST!
