Descendants of the Schrapel family have been caretakers of vineyards in the Barossa Valley for more than 150 years. Today, those very vineyards continue to be nurtured to produce what have become some of the most iconic wines in the Valley.
First Village Red Wines

The Estate Series champions the single vineyard varieties grown on the Schrapel Family estate in the Barossa and neighbouring vineyards in the Eden Valley. This series comprises Riesling, Semillon, Chardonnay, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Merlot, Shiraz and Rosé as well as sparkling white.
