South Australia | Clare Valley

Our Review

Knappstein’s full name is Knappstein Enterprise Winery, reflecting its history before being acquired by Petaluma, then part of Lion Nathan, followed by Accolade. After a period of corporate ownership, Knappstein has now come full circle and is back in private ownership, purchased in 2019 by Yinmore Wines. Despite these corporate chessboard moves, wine quality has remained excellent. The wines are produced from the substantial mature estate Enterprise, Ackland, Yertabulti and The Mayor’s vineyards. Exports to all major markets. -JH


Steeped in history and synonymous with the Clare Valley in South Australia, the Knappstein Winery has enjoyed its reputation as a maker of premium quality wines since it was established by Tim Knappstein in 1969. Knappstein's philosophy is simply to produce the best of Clare Valley handcrafted wines. Our commitment to this philosophy means we nurture the finest, most natural fruit in our vineyards and take a minimal intervention winemaking approach. This allows our winemaker to capture the purest expression of the fruit in our wines. Knappstein Cellar Door and Winery is located in the original Enterprise Brewery est. 1878, itself a heritage listed building and a major landmark of the Clare township. -JH
