WINEDEPOT signs up Jim Barry, James Halliday’s Winery of the Year

The Company is pleased to report that the legendary Clare Valley based wine producer Jim Barry Wines has joined the list of esteemed brands using WINEDEPOT’s integrated logistics, trading and order management platform.

Jim Barry Wines is an iconic Clare Valley winery, famous for producing a raft of highly-rated red and white wines with Riesling, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon the long-term heroes of the range.

The 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. Jim Barry Wines is also one of Australia’s 11 First Families of Wine, sitting alongside the Henschkes, Tyrrells, and Brown Brothers.

While Jim passed away in 2004, he is considered an Australian wine legend with a long list of awards and achievements. Jim was the region’s first qualified winemaker and helped define the region as one of Australia’s best. Key to this was Jim’s role in establishing Taylors in 1969, another of the region’s great wineries.

With Jim Barry Wines, Jim built up a global reputation for quality and innovation in the vineyard and in the winery. Today, two generations of the Barry family ensure this legacy continues to grow and flourish, producing some of our greatest wines and our most important innovations. 

They’ve planted and produced Australia’s first Assyrtiko. They’ve been leaders in single vineyard and micro bottlings of exceptional parcels of Riesling from their Florita and Lodge Hill vineyards. They’ve built the Armagh vineyard, planted by Jim Barry in 1968, into one of Australia’s most renowned for long-lived Shiraz.

Now with Tom, Sam and Olivia slowly but surely taking the reins from their multi-skilled father – the distinguished history of quality and innovation that started in the 1970s continues to grow and grow.
