Generations… You can taste it
The story behind The Winehouse
The Potts family purchased the “Bremer Café” in 2008 and gave it a new lease of life, along with a new name “The Winehouse”. The Winehouse was one of the first collaborative cellar doors in SA, allowing a number of producers to sell their wine from the one premise.
The brands that call the Winehouse home are, Gipsie Jack, Ben Potts Wines, John Glaetzer’s John’s Blend, Heartland Wines by Ben Glaetzer and Meechi Brewing Co.
The Winehouse restaurant has also evolved over time, with the appointment of head Chef Natalie and her team. The Winehouse Kitchen has become well known for producing an excellent selection of high quality meals, using locally sourced produce.
As the sixth generation, Ben Potts continues his family tradition in wine making that was started by Frank Potts at Langhorne Creek in 1850.
John Glaetzer and Ben Potts have joined forces to bring you these modern, stylish wines, capturing the freshness and vitality of today’s lifestyle and sealed it in a bottle.
Both strictly limited wines, the John’s Blend companions are as friendly and rewarding as its maker, and reflects, like john and Margarete themselves, the richness and enjoyment of Australia’s finest wine regions and their people
Heartland is that place between the vines with the best view of the gum trees. You might be in another part of Australia or another part of the world … but you can taste it from where you are.
Meechi Brewing Company
The recipes for our craft beer are created and trialed in 50L batches within the confines of the man cave. Extensive testing is then carried out on family members and friends. The brew is then tweeked if needed, before being replicated in a larger scale for all to enjoy.
