Gomersal lies on the outer western edge of the Barossa Valley and overlooks the Lyndoch valley to the south. The undulating rolling hills have traditionally been used to grow wheat, barley and canola or for sheep grazing.

The Daylight Chamber soils are varied and range from red clay underlain by rich rocky ironstone on top of the hill on the western border to the beach like sand of the eastern border. Being perched high on the outer edge of the western ridge the vineyard is exposed to the full force of the Barossa weather and  produce small bunches of intense berries, resulting in deep, powerful wines with a underlying savoury tone, showing remarkable texture and depth

The Daylight Chamber vineyard acquired its name when five of the regions original councilors would secretly meet to negotiate business and share a drink in the old stone cottage on the property.
