Vintage Season

Peak summer temperatures bring forth lush vines hiding fat bunches of berries, signalling that vintage harvest has arrived. The Barossa is a hive of activity as ancient trucks rumble into annual service along the village streets and the sweet scent of grape juice permeates the air. Meet the winemakers and learn their craft in exclusive 'behind the scenes' boutique winery experiences curated just for guests of The Louise.

Harvest with Izway Wines - This full day seasonal tour runs during the Barossa wine harvest, offering an up-close experience of artisanal winemaking, a private wine tasting and lunch. Your backstage pass to the Barossa wine harvest with Izway Wines includes learning the philosophy behind these wines, a private wine-tasting and lunch at the Barossa's Vintner's Bar & Grill. The harvest season is one of the best times to visit the Barossa. The seasonal tempo and energy is palpable. This experience gives you the chance to connect with the true heart of our region from a perspective rarely seen by wine lovers.
