At Dandelion Vineyards, it really starts and ends in the vineyard. Why the lonely dandelion is the mascot of the winery? Because the belief is that this pesky little weed is the heart and soul of the vineyard. They sprout with the first sight of life in the soil and air and they are eventually refolded back into the earth to become food for the vines.
Dandelion Vineyards was started by Bulgarian born winemaker Elena Brooks and her husband Zar. They grow their own grapes as well as source fabulous old vine fruit from some of the finest family vineyards in Barossa, McLaren Vale, and Eden Valley.
Serious stuff, certainly. Proper fun, absolutely. The lifelong search to appreciate and understand the essence of wine, its terroir, leads Zar & Elena on a vinous treasure hunt, following the Dandelion’s Wishing Clock if you will, that always inspires.
