First Drop Wines

South Australia | Barossa Valley

Our Review

First Drop Wines HQ is in the striking 'Home of the Brave' building on the southern edge of Nuriootpa in the Provenance Barossa precinct. John Retsas is the man behind the dynamic brand, with its delicious wines sourced from vineyards across the Barossa, Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale. There is a heavy emphasis on the 'alternative' (appropriate) varieties with Italian and Portuguese grapes making their presence felt; of course, shiraz, grenache, cabernet sauvignon and mataro also play a role, with a contemporary slant. -DAVE BROOKES
