Their story is one of making the bold move of buying a vineyard (Col did this without telling his wife), moving interstate (she obviously forgave him), changing career paths and building a space to share their passion for this wonderful region and the world class wine & food it produces. 

The proprerty consists of Riesling, Shiraz & Semillon - all of which were planted around 1929 or thereabouts.  They also purchase fruit from likeminded growers nearby to add to the lineup of wines available.  Col and Fi now make the wine onsite with the exception of the Riesling.  

Over time, Colin’s first career as a builder has come in very handy at Flaxman. He has built a cellar door, outdoor kitchen, pergola and pizza oven.  Once a month, Col puts his cooking hat on and produces a five course degustation of beautiful food which showcases some of the Barossa and South Australia's amazing produce.  It's a wonderful day of kicking back and being spoilt with beautiful food and wine and all enjoyed while sitting at the long table overlooking the vineyard.    

In the current 'unusual' climate our Cellar Door is open on Saturday and Sundays and our Long Lunches are now back up and running and bookings are now available.  

We would love you to join us and experience some true Barossan hospitality amongst the vines. 

Go on, you know you want to............

Meet The Team @ FLAXMAN


Hi. I look after these two boys and it's a tough job, but someone has to do it. I'm a bit of a jack of all trades around here, so on my days off, I can be found in the office working on the website, doing the book work, marketing and helping out in the vineyard and winery when and where I am needed. I look forward to welcoming you to our Cellar Door or hosting you at one of our long lunches.


I'm Col, a Builder turned winemaker who also happens to enjoy cooking a bit as well. I'm the lucky person who rarely feels like I go to work and I guess when you are indulging your passions, how can it feel like work? As they say, luck favours the brave and it was our brave leap of faith that has us living in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Come and say hi and you will understand why I will never work another day in my life.


I'm Gus and I'm an 11 year old staffy and the Cellar Door Manager here. I'll be here to greet you when you arrive and won't let you leave until I have won you over.  I also work in the vineyard with Col most of the time, love getting caught in the nets during picking time, enjoy eating the odd grape or two, but mainly I just love to be around people. I look forward to seeing you at our cellar door sometime soon.
