Langmeil Winery

South Australia | Barossa Valley

Our Review

Langmeil Winery, owned and operated by the Lindner family, is home to what may be the world’s oldest surviving shiraz vineyard, The Freedom 1843. It was planted by Christian Auricht, a blacksmith who fled religious persecution in his native Prussia and sought a new life for his family in Australia. The historic, now renovated, site was once an important trading post and is also the location of the Orphan Bank Vineyard. This plot of shiraz vines, originally planted in the ’60s, was transplanted from the centre of Tanunda to the banks of the North Para River in '06. Exports to all major markets. -JAMES HALLIDAY


Langmeil Winery is the confluence of the Barossa's cultural beginnings and award-winning winemaking. Christian Auricht established the trading-site of Langmeil and planted what is believed to be the world’s oldest surviving Shiraz vineyard; The Freedom 1843.

Today, this remarkable place is a captivating pocket of Australian history, now owned by the Lindner family whose own imprint on Barossa spans six generations of community, farming, food and wine.
