The Yelland and Papps story perhaps doesn’t fit in with the usual line spun by wineries in the Barossa - six generations of this, five generations of that. It is a story about new beginnings, a story about a young couple, with a young family, forging their own path within a wine region as first generation winegrowers. While not locals....there is a saying in the Barossa that you have to have a grand-parent “in the ground” before you are considered a local.....Susan Yelland and Michael Papps call the Barossa home and are as passionate as any sixth-generation Barossan about the region, its vines and its history and its characters.
Thirst quenching Wine. 74% Grenache 17% Mataro 9% Carignan

Yelland & Papps would have to be my favourite Roussanne producer - hands down, pants down.

It has been a crazy couple of months, getting over Christmas and repainting the Tasting Room, thank you to all our customers that visited during the holiday time.
We are now preparing for vintage, even though usually we would be in full swing of vintage at this time.
