An Exclusive Event with Grant Burge – Sept 13th, Toronto
WineAlign is pleased to kick off our fall events program with an exclusive tutored tasting with the legendary Grant Burge.
Grant Burge is a fifth-generation Barossa Vigneron. Throughout his career, Grant has been one of the most respected and innovative forces in the Australian wine industry. The history of the Burge family and their long association with winemaking in the region can be traced back to March 1855, today Grant and his family now carries the winemaking traditions into the 21st century.
Grant Burge Wines was formed in 1988 by Grant and his wife Helen, and is located in the heart of the Barossa Valley on the banks of Jacobs Creek and is still proudly family owned. Continuing the family tradition, Grant and Helen have now brought the sixth generation into the fold. All three children share Grant and Helen’s vision to continue this long family tradition of bringing exceptional wines to the world.
“I am a romantic, and I have a real sense of my family history, of my father and grandfather, and what they achieved.” Grant Burge
WineAlign’s Sara d’Amato will MC the evening: ”Grant Burge draws on a wealth of extensive family experience and passion to produce wines from some of the most revered vineyard sites in the Barossa.”
