History of Jim Barry
Situated in the cool uplands of the North Mount Lofty ranges about 50km north of Adelaide, the vineyards of Jim Barry were established in Clare in 1959. This is a family run winery committed to producing quality wines through an innovative approach in viticulture and winemaking technology. 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.
