An old film showing life in the Barossa Valley wine community in the early 1970s has emerged.

What the film here –

Wine Australia content producer Ben Moroney sent a link of the video to WBM magazine’s Friday newsletter The Week That Was.

“While doing research for an upcoming story I’m writing I stumbled across this gem from the National Film and Sound Archive that you might like,” he said.

The video – which focuses on the Henschke family including harvest and church services,  was filmed by legendary South Australian cinematographer Dean Semler and narrated by John Laws.

WBM is keen to know more about the people featured in the film. Where you in it? Let us know. Email
