Wolfgang Blass AM (Wolf’s) story is one of commitment and dedication. Born in East Germany, Wolf’s ambition to explore the world led him to gain his winemaking qualifications – a decision that would ultimately change the face of Australian wine. In 1969, Wolf purchased a two -hectare site in the Barossa Valley and the Wolf Blass wine story began. The Wolf Blass winemaking team continuously strive for the ultimate character and integrity. The team’s strong focus on careful fruit sourcing, fermentation, maturation and blending results in lifted vibrant fruit flavours, a soft, rounded palate and well integrated tannins across the entire Wolf Blass range. Standing as a testament to our charismatic founder Wolfgang Blass AM and his legacy of winemaking excellence, the Wolf Blass Visitor Centre is located at the heart of the Barossa Valley.
