Jim Barry Wines:
Jim Barry Wines has a strong lineage. Jim himself was the first qualified winemaker in the Clare Valley, graduating with the 17th Degree in Oenology from the famous Roseworthy Agricultural College in 1947. Working for 22 years as winemaker at the Clarevale Co-operative, Jim Barry became a pioneer of Australian table wine. He then went on to establish Taylors Wines in 1969.
Wife, Nancy, proved a driving force in the formation of Jim Barry Wines and sons, Peter, Mark & John were involved in the company’s rise. Peter Barry became managing director in 1985.
Today Peter’s children Tom, Sam and Olivia work for Jim Barry Wines as winemaker, commercial manager and brand ambassador respectively. Current custodian’s, Peter & Sue Barry, are deeply proud that Jim Barry Wines is still family owned, with three generations of Roseworthy graduates.
The Barry family name is synonymous with the Clare wine region and their deep ties to the local community continue to this day.
The tiny village of Watervale is nestled in South Australia’s Clare Valley and is internationally renowned for the quality of its Rieslings.
A consistently awarded wine since its first release in 1974, Watervale Riesling is picked from select parcels of vines that achieve ripeness with naturally high acid levels.
This delicate, fragrant, and elegant wine is characterised by citrus and limes, and what we describe as the ‘classic Watervale musk’.
Cover Drive Cabernet Sauvignon
On the southern boundary of Coonawarra is the old Penola cricket ground, which retired in 1996. Soon after, Jim Barry purchased the 30-acre property and planted Cabernet Sauvignon.
The hidden geological treausre of porous limestone, under the rich Terra Rossa soil, creates the ideal cellar by storing water for later use.
Fruit from this vineyard, along with selected parcels of fruit from our family owned Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the Clare Valley have been blended to produce a wine that is rich, soft and approachable.
