Grant Burge Wines has officially relocated its cellar door facility back to the Barossa Valley's Krondorf Road.
The Grant Burge cellar door was located on the Barossa Valley Way for the last 24 years, but following the decision to undertake renovations at the old Krondorf Road winery, Burge will be returning in what he describes as a "homecoming".
"We have just about finished the first stage of renovations at the old Krondorf winery which features a redesigned tasting area and a new café," Burge said.
"It's the place where I made some great wines in the 1980s and the location has some of the best views in the Barossa. Over the years Krondorf Road has become one of the region's premier wine strips and we’re proud to be neighbours to St Hallett, Rockford and Charles Melton, who all played a part in the revival of the Barossa in the late 1980s, so it is fitting that we are all together in this distinct sub-region."
Burge said the decision to return to Krondorf Road was a long-term strategy for the winery, with further plans to expand the premises to include a wine experience centre for the Barossa Valley and even more extensive food and wine offerings.
"Stage two is awaiting development approval – naturally this has been held up with the current legislative negotiations but we are hopeful we can get underway soon."
