Nikki at RedHeads – a photographer to capture the moment

A photographer to capture the moment

Although we hope very much you will, many of you may well not get the chance to come out to the Barossa and see, firsthand, how we do things at RedHeads. So, to let you see in glorious, clear, sharp technicolour, we asked photographer Dragan to come and capture the moment.

Dragan in based in the Barossa nearby. Dan and I met him at the winery at 7am sharp. Before even the coffee machine got brewing, we set off to Adrian’s (aka Hoffy’s) vineyard in the Ebenezer district of the Barossa. Dan is going to receive Mataro from there next week and has already taken his Cabernet. The red clay earth is quite something – much like the colour you find in Coonawarra.

Lots of winery shots throughout the morning, then Dragan was back early evening to take the wind down pictures, with Dan’s winemaker buddies round to help, share a beer and some pretty spectacular sausages.

Meanwhile through the afternoon, I managed to empty one large vat, ready for a few basket press loads …. and stand on a nasty wasp. Ouch!

Dan plunged this vat quite a few times over the day, to obtain just the right shot!


About Laithwaites Wine

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux... and fell in love with real wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share these delicious wines with friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that boutique wineries were soon queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from... including red, white and rosé, plus Champagne and sparkling, beer and cider.
