The name ‘Felsberg’ is a German expression for a ‘rocky hill or mountain’.
The Felsberg vineyard was first planted in 1983 by the Haag Family and you can easily see that many of the plantings have had to be squeezed in amongst the many granite boulders that are scattered across the property.
The 15 acres of grape varieties planted are Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Sylvaner, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
There are also some very small parcels of other varieties that may appear on the label from time to time.
This truly boutique winery is enclosed within a remarkable Bavarian style building located half way up the granite boulder strewn hillside.
The winery itself has a large number of small tanks which lend themselves perfectly to the production of very small parcels of quality wine.
The philosophy behind our winemaking is... to extract the very best that Mother Nature provides and produce wines that exhibit the true character of the soil they come from – ‘terroir’.
Our over riding aim is to ensure that the wines are balanced.
Wine flavours and other inputs such as oak should be perfectly balanced to produce wines that are a delight to consume.
