Explore the Barossa Valley

Wolf Blass is an icon of the Barossa Valley. Discover how you can win a trip to the winery and experience the best of the Barossa for yourself.

The history of Wolf Blass

Wolfgang Franz Otto Blass was born in 1934 in Germany. After Wolf ran away from school, his parents handed him an ultimatum, either start a three-year winemaking apprenticeship or get back to class — and so began a journey that changed the winemaking world.

After studying Champagne techniques in France in 1957, Wolf became the youngest person ever to graduate with a Master's in Oenology (Wine Science) from Veitschoechheim-Wuerzberg. In 1959, he moved to England to study the art of blending before moving to the Barossa Valley in 1961. A mere five years later, in 1966, he established Wolf Blass Wines.

In 1973, Wolf really hit his straps by making the first Wolf Blass Black Label. Black Label would go on to win the 1974 Jimmy Watson Trophy, an accolade that is still considered Australia's most prestigious and sought-after wine award.
