Our Old Quarry Tawny is made from the traditional Barossa tawny port varieties - Grenache and Shiraz Harvested late in the season to achieve maximum ripeness and complexity. After fortification with premium quality brandy spirit it is aged in old oak casks for an average of ten years. The bouquet displays intense raisin and nutty rancio characters which carry on to the mellow, dried fruit palate. The lingering finish is rich and full of flavour, with pleasant, well integrated tannins and brandy spirit.
"The philosophy at Bethany Wines has remained constant for more than 30 years - to produce exceptional wines that show the flavours of the family vineyards and are a natural reflection of the microclimate of the Barossa Ranges" - Geoff Schrapel.
Johann Gottlob Schrapel and his family arrived in South Australia from Silesia on the ship “George Washington” in 1844, just eight years after the colony was settled.
Like many of their fellow Germanic migrants they made their way by ox cart to Bethany, the Barossa Valley’s first settlement, where they established a home and cleared the land to grow crops and graze animals. The Schrapels planted their first vineyard in 1852 from cuttings carefully nursed from Europe. A wine cellar was also built, but despite Johann’s reputation as an early colonial winemaker, the family concentrated on grapegrowing rather than winemaking for the next four generations.
More than a century later in 1981, Johann’s fifth generation descendants, brothers Geoff and Robert Schrapel, established Bethany Wines in a quarry, where the pioneers had hewn stone for their homes, high in the Barossa Ranges overlooking the family’s vineyards and the historic village of Bethany.
Today, Bethany Wines remains proudly family owned with the fifth and sixth generation of the family working in the business.
