Biscay Road vineyard
In 2004, the 3 Rings brand was established in the Barossa Valley. The Barossa is home to some of the oldest vines in the world. Its Mediterranean climate is ideal for full-bodied red wines.
In June 2017, David, his wife Dena and their son Alan Robb Hickinbotham, named after his great grandfather, purchased the iconic Barossa Valley Vineyard ‘Biscay Road’ where the family had been purchasing fruit from for the 3 Rings Brand since 2009. Biscay Road Vineyard is one of only a few in the Barossa where the soil is unique, the cracking clay Biscay soils provide ideal vine growing conditions for red varietals.
Alan manages this vineyard with the assistance of his wife Louise and their vineyard dog Cash.
Louise and Alan were fittingly married on the Vineyard in February 2019.
Biscay Road Vineyard grows Shiraz, Cabernet and Durif (Petit Syrah) across 64 acres on the edge of Tanunda and Bethany. It also supplies grapes to some of the most well-known wineries in the Barossa.
