A labour of love.
Located on the historic main street of Hahndorf, this heritage listed building combines old world charm with modern design.
The tasteful and careful renovation of the heritage listed, 1912 State Bank building and historic school house, has been a labour of love for Wolf and his wife Shirley. Combining old-world charm with a relaxed, contemporary wine bar, Shirley designed and decorated the Gallery and Museum to create innovative spaces for entertainment, education and display.
Included under the main roof of the building is the heritage listed original Hahndorf School building from 1854 which has been set up as a Cooperage display.
There is also the Wine Barrel Board Room where a selection of educational material on marketing, winemaking and presentation will be available to view. A wine interpretive area as well as Wolfie’s Horse Bar-a stunning 7 metre long bar where a selection of trophies from his winning horses is displayed. Also on display may be the first Melbourne Cup Trophy (1865) purchased by Wolf. Wolfie’s Wine Bar range of specially blended and bottled grape varietal wines from SA Wine Regions and earning the exclusive Museum Selection label. Wines selected by Wolf and Brian Walsh, Trustee and past Chairman of Judges at National Wine Shows. To complement these wines, a fine selection of locally produced food is available on platters.
Also on display is a selection of paintings by Sir Hans Heysen kindly donated by Shirley Nyberg-Blass, Senator of the Wolf Blass Foundation.
