Beringer Blass, the newly formed wine company created by the merger between Mildara Blass and Beringer Wines, opened a $A30m Wolf Blass winery today in Barossa Valley. The winery is part of a 10-year plan for the flagship brand. The winery, which Terry Davis, Beringer Blass's MD, called "the world's most advanced premium winery" has the capacity to process 20,000 tonnes of grapes in the 2001 vintage. It also has been designed to allow for expansion of up to 75,000 tonnes.
