I have my own ‘dog friendly’ winery in the Barossa Valley, South Australia, where by appointment only, you are welcome to enjoy a wonderful wine tasting experience while your dogs play in my enclosed dog park.
It is every winemaker’s dream to own their own label and in 2017 that dream came true with the release of my wine collection “Lévrier by Jo Irvine”.
Lévrier, meaning greyhound, combines my love of winemaking and the advocacy I have for my greyhounds who have been a major part of my life for over 20 years.
The love and respect I have for these gracious animals has led me to support the Greyhound Adoption Programme (Greyhounds as Pets) and adopt my two greyhounds, Georgie and Daphne who ‘help’ me at my winery office daily.
I work closely with local grape growers to create vegan friendly wine styles from the Barossa and Eden Valleys, including Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Shiraz and from the Adelaide Hills, my rare and exciting Sparkling Meslier Brut Rose`.
Wines from my Art Collection are labelled using colourful dog paintings from Elle J Wilson, and wines from my Mosaic Collection feature ancient mosaic label art.
Already my Levrier Wines have been very highly rated and in 2021 I was awarded “Wine of the Year” at the London Wine Competition.
