Ballycroft was originally the name of the cheesery run by sisters Sue Evans and Tracey Skepper. Waste water was utilised to irrigate the young vines and whey used as fertilizer. Unfortunately the cheesery ceased operating in 2011 but the distinctive logo still graces the Small Berry wine bottles.
The vineyard, planted in 1998 sits on a sloping 15 acre property in Greenock, Western Barossa Valley. In January 2016 Ballycroft Vineyard and Cellars opened their Tasting Room, once the production room for the cheese.
