The idea for the formation of the Kurtz Family Vineyards is by no means unique. It commenced from a long family history of growing grapes, drinking the end product, and a desire to see wine made exclusively from their grapes.
Alfred Bernhard (Ben) Kurtz commenced growing grapes in the sub-region of Light Pass in the Barossa Valley in the 1930s, and this block is still worked to this day. Then, his son, Bernhard Otto Kurtz, commenced grape growing in 1957 at his Light Pass vineyard, and following, his grandson, John Bernhard Kurtz, moved to the existing vineyards in the early 1960s.
