Jim Barry is an Australian wine legend with a list of achievements as long as the finish on his Clare Valley wines. Jim was the region’s first qualified winemaker. He helped define the region as one of Australia’s best for Riesling, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon at the Clarevale Cooperative. Jim was also vital in establishing one of the region’s great wineries, Taylors. And he did all this before he started the Jim Barry winery in 1974.
