Jim Barry, Clare Valley, South Australia
World-class Iconic Wines
Certain names resonate strongly within the halls of Australian wine history.
Jim Barry is one such name.
It was Jim Barry’s drive and community spirit that helped shape South Australia’s Clare Valley as a benchmark producer of world-class Riesling and cemented its place as one of Australia’s premier wine regions.
Jim’s wife, Nancy, proved a driving force in the formation of Jim Barry Wines and sons, Peter, Mark & John were involved in the company’s rise. Peter Barry became managing director in 1985.
Today Peter’s children Tom, Sam and Olivia work for Jim Barry Wines as winemaker, commercial manager and brand ambassador respectively.
The Barry family name is synonymous with the Clare wine region, and their deep ties to the local community continue to this day.
