James Halliday's Wine Companion

Winner of the prestigious 'Winery of the Year' Award in the 2020 edition of James Halliday's Wine Companion. Jim Barry Wines has established a second-to-none hold on Clare Valley riesling; it swept all the riesling classes at the 2018 Clare Valley Wine Show. It also produces cabernet sauvignon from a 13.3ha block in Coonawarra purchased and planted in 1978. James Halliday’s Winery of the Year award coincides with the 60th anniversary of Jim Barry Wines, making it an especially significant event for this Clare Valley producer. In looking at the story of Jim Barry Wines over time, a lot has happened since the purchase of that first vineyard back in 1959. Beginning with humble aspirations to grow and sell grapes, the late Jim Barry could never have guessed how his small family business would grow – from one vineyard to 10, including some of oldest vines in the region, and with a raft of highly-rated red and white wines. Today, Jim Barry Wines is one of the Clare Valley’s most successful wineries, with shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and riesling the long-term heroes of the range, and the Greek white variety assyrtiko the new star of its stable.
