Four generations in the Red Gum Timber Industry
Born the daughter of Jan Lord ( nee - Barker ), Star Lanes winemaker Liz Barnes as she is now known has a proud link to the Australian Red Gum Timber industry. Through the Barker family who are synonymous with the trade, Liz has a connection that stretches over four generations. Although it may be a little clichéd to say that timber runs through her veins it is little wonder that when innovation meets history through such a willing spirit that something truly wonderful will result. It is this merging together with Star Lane Winery's uncompromised pursuit of maintaining absolute excellence and world leading quality in the field of hand crafted boutique wine production that has seen the peerless birth of Star Lane Winery Six Elements proprietary Red Gum Barrel Fermented Shiraz.
Note: The Star Lane Winery Red Gum Timber Barrel and Elements Shiraz Box packaging have been carefully crafted using only salvaged Red Gum Timber that has been specially kiln dried
