Atze's Corner is a dream come true after six generations of viticulture. They brought together exceptional terroir, ancient vineyards and all the passion to produce the most exceptional wines. Their ancestors moved to Australia from eastern Prussia before settling in Barossa Valley circa 1843. They were skilled farmers who brought hope, years of expertise growing grapes and winemaking knowledge. Conditions were extremely tough but their passion prevailed. If you look around, you can still see some of their original plantings carved into the gorgeous Barossa landscape. It's not a coincidence that these old vineyards produce some of the most glorious wines to this day. Their outstanding quality together with a hand crafted process makes Kalleske wines unbeatable.
Along with his parents John and Barb, the Kalleske are the proud owners and caretakers of many original vineyards, the oldest dating back to 1912. Behind the label, Andy Kalleske decided to take this family passion to the next level. In 2005, he started Atze's Corner and his own brand of wine production.
You're able to find Barossa sub-regions separated by different terroirs. Each wine grape is unique and each terroir has its own varietal expression. Unique terroirs are responsible for how a wine will be shaped when it comes to taste, colour and smell. This is the recipe that turned the Atze's Corner label into a great symbol of quality and taste.
