WHO IS SORBY ADAMS?
The Barossa is Australia’s most famous wine region and is believed to have the oldest continually bearing Shiraz vines in the world.
Thankfully it has also been my home since 1980 and I have been fortunate to be amongst an amazing group of people here – winemakers, vignerons and of course friends.
Sorby Adams Wines is our family brand (Anna Louisa Sorby married Augustus Crichton Adams in the early 1800’s in Hertfordshire and has been our family name ever since) and we are proud to show you what we do.
