Climate and Soil

The Hartz Barn Wines “Dennistone Vineyard” is 359 metres above sea level receiving 480 mm of rainfall in most years.

“Dennistone Vineyard” soils are loam over red brown friable clay subsoils that are very productive, well structured and free draining. Warm to hot summer days associated with cool evenings facilitates the extended grape ripening period.

These elements combined with carefully managed ground moisture monitoring produce the balanced and flavoursome premium wines of Hartz Barn Wines.
