History Of Brothers In Arms
At Brothers in Arms we put our heart into full-bodied wine that is true to the estate and true to the region. Our wines showcase our quality fruit and reflect the spirit of our family tradition. Since being established in 1998 we have achieved national & international recognition for our Brothers in Arms bottled beauties.
The first vintage saw only 5 tonnes of Shiraz produced, a volume which has now grown to over 700 tonne per year. In all 212 hectares are planted to vines with the balance of the 1000 Ha (2,500 acres) property given over to Merino sheep and cropping.
Brothers in Arms is very much a family concern. As the owners, Guy & Liz Adams are involved in all aspects of the business on a daily basis. It’s not surprising really as they live on the vineyard only 2 minutes down the road to the winery.
The homestead is the hub of everything as well as being the domain of their 2 children, Myles & Emily. They are the 6th Generation to live at Metala and are the inspiration for many things, including the No.6 label.
