Jim Barry "The Lodge Hill"
Description: The Lodge Hill Shiraz vineyard, on the Clare Valley's eastern ranges, has soils of rich, chocolaty loam over almost vertical sheets of rock. The cracks between the rock have filled with soil, providing passage for the vine roots and free drainage - the ideal environment for low-yielding Shiraz vines. The late Jim Barry was a pioneer of the Australian wine industry. He was the first qualified winemaker to work in the Clare Valley of South Australia and with his wife, Nancy, built a successful wine business which has produced trophy-winning wines since its establishment in 1959. Today, the company is headed by Jim's second son Peter, who took over from his father as Managing Director. "Sometimes it takes longer than a lifetime to do a lifetime's work… it's now up to my children." - Jim Barry 1925 – 2004.
