A good dirt Website:

We all have that one serious wine loving friend. You know, the one who over complicates wine, the one who’s tasted their way through Bordeaux, the one who thinks they are ‘cultured’, the one who’s cellar is brim full of insanely expensive Pinot. Well they probably wouldn’t fit in here with the wines from A Good Dirt. Here we solely believe in good time wines made with an inquisitive nature yet delivering heavily on accessibility and quality. We lower that serious cloak, and offer a range of session-able wines for any occasion, anywhere-anytime. A Good Dirt is a tip of the hat to traditionalism, but with eyes firmly looking to enhancing the good times.
Barossa Valley
The Barossa Valley is about an hour and a half drive to the North of Adelaide, in South Australia and is the oldest wine region in the country, founded by German settlers. The region can be credited with putting Australian wine on the world wine map, thanks to Shiraz, which thrives in the warm climate (though Hunter Valley Semillon also contributed.)

For many years traditionalist wine makers thought the grape variety was best suited to the cooler climates of the Rhone Valley and that the variety would cook and in the warmth of the Australian sun. Although South Australian Shiraz is a bigger, beefier wine than its southern French counterpart Syrah, no one can deny the regions propensity to produce world class wines.

Not only Shiraz is cultivated in Barossa Valley, with other red varieties such as Grenache, Mourvedre (Mataro) and to a lesser extent Cabernet Sauvignon. The white varieties that thrive best seem to be Semillon, Chardonnay and Rhone varietals like viognier, Marsanne and Roussane.

The Valley has many subregions which all have unique terroirs. Seppeltsfield, Marananga, Greenock are to name but a few. With a huge number of wineries in such a small area, and a host of accommodation, the region is very popular for wine-tourism. In the words of Master of Wine Jancis Robinson, the Barossa Valley became "Australia's quintessential wine region."
