Every bottle of Shanahan’s Wines has its own unique and heartfelt story. The story of Shanahan’s Wines itself began back in 2005 and was born out of owner/winemaker John’s passion for wine, his deep family connection and an unsurpassed love and respect for life on the land.
The name is a tribute to John’s family, in particular his late grandfather James (Jim) Shanahan, who established a broadacre farm in the early 1900’s at Magdala. John spent so much of his childhood years by his grandfather’s side, exploring and helping him on his beloved property.
Shanahan’s Wines has grown from its humble beginnings to now being a significant operation but is still 100% family owned and operated from vineyard to bottle ensuring the quality of every single drop.
Each vintage is hand-crafted with care using small parcels of premium fruit that are sourced predominantly from Western Barossa sub regions of Greenock and Marananga, as well as from selected growers from Eden Valley, Ebenezer and Tanunda.
Each wine in the Shanahan’s portfolio tells a unique story which is close to John’s heart, and also reflects its own individuality and charisma. Just like John’s grandfather Jim, the entire collection has loads of character and over delivers to bring you something truly outstanding.
