Jim Barry Wines' philosophy to winemaking is very simple: own the vineyards to develop the best fruit flavours possible and retain these flavours during winemaking.
We firmly believe that great wine is made in the vineyard. Over our 54 years, we have worked to establish a mosaic of vineyards across the Clare Valley, each unique in site, soil and aspect. In addition to this, we have two vineyards in the Coonawarra region, where we grow some of our Cabernet Sauvignon on the famous Terra Rossa soils.
Jim Barry Wines has four distinctive climatic and geographical sites in the Clare Valley –
• Watervale towards the southern end of the Valley
• Lodge Hill in the eastern ranges
• Vineyards at the northern entrance to Clare and
• Armagh to the west
• In addition, the company has a 14 hectare Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in the Coonawarra region.
