It was eighteen years ago since the first wine from Gumpara was released. Over time, a portfolio of wines evolved resulting in a decision to build a cellar door to introduce to you our unique range of table wines. With most of the original buildings long gone, a restored disused shed was the only alternative to building a complete new structure.
This old shed had multiple uses over the years including animal shelter, shearing and apricot cutting. The internal support structures are recycled timber posts, originating from the first Light Pass Church Manse which was established in 1857. The shiny polished floors are comprised of a colourful kaleidoscope of aggregate from the local quarry and a large 4 meter slab of red gum was put in place to finish off the bar.
“I think it’s time to shine a brighter light on the place and highlight what we have here that’s special.”
