Colonial Wine Company, Nuriootpa


Colonial Wine Company offered a range of limited production Australian wines with an old world approach. Kennett Builders was engaged to complete the Colonial Wine Company building in Nuriootpa. The land and building now has new owners.


  • The client was very specific about the look of the building, which required an intimate knowledge of stonework
  • To complete this building we used paddock stone. Due to the limited consistent supply of this stone, many hours were put into stone classification in order to achieve a uniform look for the building


  • The project was completed under budget and four weeks ahead of schedule
  • The use of paddock stone was successful and used around precast walls with a structural steel roof frame
  • All windows and doors were period-correct timber, keeping the heritage look and feel consistent
  • We sourced the lights from France to satisfy the very specific needs of the client
  • The door hinges were made from scratch, replicated from a photograph supplied by the client. We sourced an ironmonger from the Riverland to hand craft the hinges
  • The whole process was enjoyable and satisfying for both us and the client’s representative in Australia
