“The Barossa Valle, magnet for wine lovers, owes its green patchwork of vineyards to pious Lutherans – refugees from religious persecution in their German homeland.  IT was they who planted the first vines and made the first wine – for home consumption – and their spirit still breaths through the old churches, farmhouses, and barns, villages, and wineries of the area.
Thyrza Davey has spent six years in all seasons painting and recording this heritage.  The present world of vineyards and picturesque villages, wineries and small towns are revealed to us through the eyes of an artist who sees the past all around her – in and through the twentieth century tourist attraction which the valley has now become.”
