Community spirit through and through

Budgie Schiller has lived at Eudunda his entire life and is known by the community as a generous man, who believes strongly in treating people fairly and who goes out of his way to help whenever he can.

Call me Mr Mac

Chalk dust and teenage anticipation season the air of an otherwise unremarkable transportable classroom at Nuriootpa High School. It’s 1981, and a fit middle aged man with a neatly kept full beard, curly dark hair and glasses stands at the front of the class, preparing to address his first ever cohort of design students.

Cold blooded compassion

Dan Marshall has a few loves in his life, but it’s not quite what you think. “Indie, she’s an absolute sweetheart,” says Dan, referring to the 2.5 metre long Murray Darling carpet python curled up in his backyard shed.

Raising the barre

As the curtain rises, Alice Cook graces the stage with the confidence, poise and composure of a professional ballet dancer.

A wish and a smile

For this group of volunteers, making wishes come true starts with the simple act of believing anything is possible.

Cirillo Estate – a big little winery

Vincent Cirillo’s worn and weathered hands are as gnarly as the 175-year-old Grenache, Shiraz and Semillon vines that grow alongside his family’s Nuriootpa homestead, on Nuraip Road. Today, those hard-working hands hold a glass of Cirillo Estate Wines’ Vincent Grenache, as he chats to his winemaker son, Marco, who named the wine in his honour.

The progressive protagonist

They say few things bring protagonists a deeper sense of fulfilment than guiding friends and loved ones to grow into their best selves.

Kalleske Wines

Since 1853, the Kalleske family has continually farmed land on the outskirts of Greenock. Seven generations have contributed to the property, all following in the footsteps of Eduard and Rosina Kalleske who planted the first vines, some of which still grow today.

Marcus Schulz

On his Ebenezer family property ‘Primrose’ where vigneron Marcus Schulz grew up and still lives and works, stands a characterful relic of our past… A rustic timber and thatched straw roof shed.

Rebecca Reynolds

The power of public voice. Making the invisible visible. With a long family association, a childhood spent at the pool, a passion for all things aquatic, and a good dose of community activism, the threatened closure of the historic Nuriootpa War Memorial Swimming pool back in 2020, saw Rebecca Reynolds dive head first into the Nuri Pool Working group campaign to save the pool.

Roland Weight

Roland Weight will be well known to many in the Barossa and indeed to many from further afield. He is the instigator to a lot of visual artists in the Barossa. He started the Byron Bay School of Art and trained as a sculptural artist.

Ginger Lemon Drop

Embrace the zing with a Ginger Lemon Drop cocktail. A lively mix bursting with ginger spice, crisp apple and zesty lemon. Refreshing, spicy and tailor-made for those cosy Autumn nights in.

Lean Lasagne

A delicious, hearty favourite that’s also heart-smart. Leftovers are great to have as single-serve portions in the freezer too!

Mushroom and Truffle Cheese Danishes

What do you get when cream cheese and truffle Manchego invite sauteed mushroom and thyme to a pastry party? A savoury Danish to die for! Rich in flavour, layered with texture, and delicious to the eye, this recipe is a triple threat.

Brianna & Luke’s Wedding

When the bride is a wedding specialist you would expect that industry expertise to come in handy for her own special day – and this was certainly the case for Brianna Kaye when she married Luke (‘Lefty’) Hamann at Peter Lehmann Wines in October.

Hannah & Josh’s Wedding

A beautiful spring day with dappled afternoon sunlight perfectly offset the elegant simplicity of Hannah Sanders and Josh Koch’s wedding in October, when the farmer wed his partner of seven years at Moculta.
