Accolade buys Grant Burge

Accolade Wines has completed its acquisition of Barossa’s Grant Burge Wines, including the Grant Burge brand, Burge and Rathbone Fine Wine Merchants business and the historic Krondorf Winery.

Financial details of the deal have not been revealed, however Accolade Wines’ general manager for Asia Pacific, Michael East, said the company had been seeking a base in the Barossa for some time and had approached Burge on that basis.

“We have a major, historical presence in McLaren Vale through Hardys, in WA through Houghton, in Margaret River through Brookland Valley, in the Clare Valley through Leasingham and Tasmania via Bay of Fires”, he said. “Grant Burge and the Barossa were a natural next step.”

Grant and Helen Burge founded Grant Burge Wines in 1988, which has become known for its sparkling, premium white, red and fortified wines, and in particular its Meshach Shiraz.

“As we have done with the other brands, we see this as an opportunity to grow the brand even further globally through our distribution network across 112 countries”, said East.

Mr East said Grant Burge would play a “crucial role” as brand ambassador and continue to supply premium Barossa Valley fruit to the business.
