A true grandee of the Barossa Valley; Thorn-Clarke’s ancestors settled in the region in the 1870s and for six generations have been involved in the wine industry. The family prides itself on the environmental sustainability of their operations and have set the bar high to ensure their continued status as a premium wine producer par excellence. Four vineyards, all site selected to ensure ideal growing conditions for each varietal, together with great care and attention to detail in their winery at Milton Park, helps to ensure that Thorn-Clarke’s portfolio over-delivers in quality and character, while offering a value for money which is hard to beat.

Thorn-Clarke have recently been awarded a 5* producer rating from James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion for the 10th consecutive year. They have also had 11 wines rated at or above 90 points including two wines rated at 97 points. Ben Chapman, CEO, told us, “This is our most successful ‘range review’ in James Halliday’s Wine Companion since we released our first wine in 1998. It is nice recognition of our efforts to ensure that the wines keep improving each year…”
