Reillys Wines

South Australia | Clare Valley

Our Review

Established in 1993 by Justin and Julie Ardill. Justin handmade the first vintage in '94 on the verandah of the heritage-listed Reillys Cottage - built in 1856 by Irish shoemaker Hugh Reilly from local slate - which today serves as their cellar door and restaurant. Justin continues to use the same traditional winemaking techniques of prolonged open fermentation, hand-plunging and barrel maturation. The wines are made from estate vineyards (the oldest planted in 1919). Exports to Canada, Malaysia, Singapore, NZ, Hong Kong and China.
