The land on which Langmeil Winery now stands was purchased by a German blacksmith, Christian Auricht. He and his family arrived in South Australia in 1838 after emigrating from eastern-central Europe to escape religious persecution.
Today Langmeil uses open fermenters and basket presses for over half its grape intake of approximately 1000 tonnes. In the main this accounts for all our premium red wines as well as a fair percentage of our other lines. The synergy of new and old world equipment has helped to capture the characteristics in each variety and protect the subtleties of individual vineyards. Langmeil’s award winning premium range is internationally recognized and has contributed towards the winery being regarded as one of the top premium wine producers in Australia. The young team is dedicated to the success of the winery, driven only by quality in every aspect. Langmeil is a must visit when you are in the Barossa, with stunning grounds and tours showcasing the notable history to thousands of visitors annually. Ein Prosit! (Cheers!)
