The History

Smallfry Wines is a partnership in business and life. Suzi Hilder and Wayne Ahrens are viticulturalists who were inevitably bitten by the winemaking bug and are now turning their own Organic and Biodynamically grown grapes into wine. Their mission is to produce the best fruit possible in order for it to eventually land in your glass.

Smallfry is lucky enough to own two very special vineyards, one in Eden Valley and the other in Vine Vale in the valley floor. The Eden Valley vineyard was planted by Suzi and Wayne in 1994, while the Vine Vale block has been in the family for generations, with the last incumbent putting in 52 vintages before hanging up his snips.

The Philosophy

Being the foodies that they are, drives their winemaking down a certain path. The wines are food friendly and European in style, with an eye for balance and subtlety. 

Natural ferments, nil to minimal adjustment, old oak a soft hand in the cellar allows the vineyard to speak.

As Suzi and Wayne go forward they hope to develop a brand we can be proud of. A business that takes its part in the fabric of the local community, supports the Barossa and gives its customers something unique.
