Loom Wine is a vibrant and progressive family owned wine business based in McLaren Vale, South Australia. We have a collaborative and enthusiastic culture that is reflected in our wines, packaging and lack of reservation to embark on new journeys. Whilst McLaren Vale is our home, we continue to explore other regions within South Australia in search of distinguished vineyard sites.
We often get asked ‘what makes you different, or what is unique about your wines?’ It’s a question we always struggle to answer, primarily as we’re not really sure we do much differently or better than our wine industry colleagues. We are who we are, a young hardworking group of wine people trying our best to make honest wines in a manner that embraces the variety, region and harvest and showcasing them to as many like-minded people as possible.
