Barossa Valley, Australia
The Scholz’s Australian story began in 1845 when 40 year-old Johann Gottfried joined his neighbours to flee the religious persecution of his Silesian homeland, and emigrate to a fertile valley on the other side of the world – the Barossa.
Johann had spent most of his early career as a bone-setter in the Prussian Army and it was his healing hands which were in demand, as the early settlers had to contend with the daily bumps, breaks and bruises of their harsh environment.
In 1979 the sixth generation Scholz, Peter took his first winemaking job with Peter Lehmann at Saltram.
Peter Scholz opened a cellar door in 1989 and started selling the first wines under The Willows Vineyard label.
The Scholz family have come full circle – from healing with their hands to offering the 21st centuries latest natural remedy, red wine, all the time maintaining their closeness to the soil and the traditions of the Barossa.
