The birth of Turkey Flat took place in 1847 when a far-sighted Silesian refugee Johann Frederick August Fiedler planted Shiraz vines in the rich alluvial soils adjacent to the Bethany Creek. Turkey Flat is the local name for the vineyard property and is believed to be so named by the original settlers in the late 1840’s after the large flocks of native bush turkeys (Australian Bustard) in the area.

 The Schulz family became owners of the Turkey Flat property in around 1865 and while they continued to tend the ancient vineyard, they also developed a thriving butchers business. The sensitively restored bluestone butchers shop is now the wine sales and private tasting room referred as 'The Butcher's Block Room' for the company.

Bethany to Angaston Trail

Bethany to Angaston Trail...discover more of the Barossa. This trail brings to you our little community from Bethany (near Tanunda) to the hills of Angaston – where we go to for that amazing shiraz, cheeky little riesling, fresh & fabulous produce straight from the farm, Friday knock-off beer – where we take our own visitors when they come to town & where we send them to rest their weary heads at night when there’s no more room at home. There will always be something new here – news, events, photos, the general goings-on of the places you can find along the trail – in our own voices. Join us & be consumed by our community – the true character of the Barossa:
