Turkey Flat Vineyards is a family-owned estate that forms a vital part of the Barossa Valley’s rich cultural heritage. Christie is the fourth generation of the Schulz family to become caretaker of the remarkable property, and the fifth generation, Christie’s eldest son Alex, is now involved in running the winery. Intensely aware of the individual ecosystems in the area, extensive viticultural research has been undertaken in the five vineyard sites, allowing the team to sensitively blend traditional Rhône varietals that speak confidently of their origin.
Throughout its production process, Turkey Flat seeks to operate in respect of the local ecosystems, instead of in competition with them. The vineyards survive on natural rainfall, with minimal tillage, and focus on reducing herbicide usage with the goal of becoming Organic Certified in the near future.
