South Australia | Eden Valley

Our Review

When James (Jim) Irvine established his eponymous winery, he chose a singularly difficult focus for the business: the production of great merlot from the Eden Valley. Throughout the years of establishment, and indeed thereafter, he was a much-in-demand consultant, bobbing up in all sorts of places. Yet when he decided to sell the business in 2014, its potential was greatly increased with the dowry provided by the purchasing Wade and Miles families. In 1867 Henry Winter Miles planted 0.8ha of shiraz. Successive generations of the Miles family had added to the vineyard portfolio from 1967, both acquiring existing vineyards and planting others (Ben’s Block vineyard at Penrice is home to 120-year-old vines). Henry’s great-grandson Peter Miles and partner John Wade collectively own 160ha spread through the Barossa and Eden valleys, although only 80ha fall within the new Irvine partnership. Exports to the UK, Switzerland, UAE, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong and China.


Irvine Wines was established back in 1983 by a visionary team who succeeded in putting Australian Merlot at the forefront of the world’s very best. Irvine is now re-emerging even stronger, led by a team that combines world-class Barossa winemaking and viticultural traditions with a track record of excellence in innovation. Irvine Wines are one of the largest privately-owned premium grape growers in the Barossa with over 400 acres of premium Barossa and Eden Valley vineyards. Four generations of Miles’ family expertise ensures the fruit we grow is of the highest quality and harvested with precise timing.
