Invites Members and Guests to
An Evening at Underground Barossa
Tuesday March 24th 6.45 for 7pm
161 Murray St, Tanunda
Underground Barossa is owned by Trent Burge and Amelia Thomas, son and daughter of Grant and Helen Burge. Together with their families, they are the 6th generation of Burge’s making their mark on the Barossa. Trent is Bruce Thiele’s Godson.
This is a new life housed in the iconic 120 year old original Basedow Winery in Tanunda which has been owned by the Burge family for 27 years. Take a walk down the iconic stairs and you will soon find yourself standing below barrels of fortified wine, a refurbished old underground space that in the 1950’s-1960’s was a cellar maturing bins of premium Barossa red.
The complex, which is located at the front of the Illaparra Winery site, has long been a regular stop for bulk port under various guises. Both Trent and Amelia have their own wine brands within Underground Barossa and are heavily involved in the wine making. Sibling rivalry abounds and will add to the spice of the evening. The wines they are producing are a
credit to the Burge name. Grant and Helen Burge will be part of the considerable Burge presence on the night. Not not to be missed. Put the date in your diary. Better still bring a friend.
