Inside Wine - Santa Barbara

The Jim Barry winery was founded in 1959 in the Clare Valley by Jim and Nancy Barry. Widely credited with helping to shape the valley as a benchmark producer of world class Riesling and Shiraz, the Jim Barry portfolio of wines played a substantial role in cementing Clare as one of Australia’s premier wine regions. The Armagh Shiraz, from a single vineyard planted by Jim Barry in 1968, is one of the undisputed icons of Australian wine.

Today the winery and its vineyards are owned and managed by the second generation of the Barry family. The vineyards represent a wide spectrum of the Clare Valley, each one unique in site, soil and aspect. They also have two vineyards in the Coonawarra region, where they grow Cabernet Sauvignon on the famous Terra Rossa soils.

The Barry family firmly believes that great wine is made in the vineyard. Their philosophy of winemaking is to own and farm the vineyards themselves, in order to develop the best fruit flavors possible then retain those ideal fruit flavors, emphasizing freshness, character and drinkability over massive power and heaviness.

The fine wine importer, Loosen Bros., will pour 5 of these internationally recognized wines and talk about the Southern Australian wine region.
