The Yelland & Papps story is about new beginnings, a young couple starting and forging our own path in the wine industry, respecting the traditions of the home that is the Barossa, but also putting our stamp and foot print on what we believe in. We are starting our legacy our future and our kid’s future. We have been blessed with the opportunity to own a piece of history in the Barossa Valley that dates back to 1848, one of the first settlers, (the Hahn family), settled here as one of the first six families in this area.

The Divine is the story of outstanding vineyards that need to be recognised. Exceptional fruit that comes in the winery and enlivens our passion with how near perfect the fruit is. It represents the terroir, the climate, the presence of the Barossa in one single bunch. Our job is to find these amazing vineyards that are at an elite quality and make them in a respectful way that lets the vineyard and the fruit speak. Elegant oak, longer maturation time and patience brings with it a truly memorable wine.

Smells of lemon blossom and the sea. It tastes zesty with grapefruit pith, neat phenolics and saline-lemon flavours with a smidge of dried Mediterranean herbs. Must be vermentino. It's spot-on.
