Certain names resonate strongly within Australian wine history and Jim Barry is one of them. It was Jim Barry's drive that helped shape South Australias Clare Valley as a benchmark producer of world class Riesling and cemented it as one of Australia's premier wine regions. Jim was the first qualified winemaker in the Clare Valley, graduating with a degree in oenology from the prestigious Roseworthy Agricultural College in 1947. Founded in 1959, Jim Barry Wines is still family owned, with three generations of Roseworthy graduates. Jims son Peter became managing director in 1985 and today Peters children Tom, Sam and Olivia are the winemaker, commercial manager and brand ambassador respectively.
