The late Jim Barry was a pioneer of the Australian wine industry. With his wife, Nancy, Jim built a successful wine business which has produced trophy-winning wines since its establishment in 1959.
Jim Barry Wines produce all of their own fruit from 10 locations in the Clare Valley totalling more than 250 hectares, along with a 14 hectare property at Coonawarra. This access to high-quality, estate-grown fruit has been instrumental in the development of a number of prominent brands, including The Armagh Shiraz, The McRae Wood Shiraz, The Lodge Hill Shiraz, The First Eleven Cabernet Sauvignon, The Benbournie Cabernet Sauvignon, The Cover Drive Cabernet Sauvignon, The Florita Riesling, The Lodge Hill Riesling and the Watervale Riesling. Jim Barry also produce Australia’s only Assyrtiko, a Greek variety that is native to the island of Santorini.
Jim Barry Wines is proud to be a Japanese friendly cellar door and can facilitate wine tastings in Japanese on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Bookings for these tastings are essential.
