Enjoy hand crafted Barossa wines and raise money for your school!
Have you heard about Faith Lutheran College’s wine program? Every vintage since 1992, wines have been hand crafted by Year 10 students under the direction of Winemaker Bob Mitchell, and well supported by generous Vignerons and Winemakers of the Barossa. The label design changes each vintage with the colourful labels designed by talented Year 11 Visual Arts and Design students. The result? Wonderful wines that express unique regional characters of the Barossa.

For every 6 bottles purchased by your school community, Faith will donate $10 back to your school.

See the office or website for an order form.
