The Galafrey story began when Ian and Linda Tyrer gave up high-profile jobs in the emerging computer industry and arrived in Mount Barker to start growing grapes and making wine, the vine-change partially prompted by their desire to bring up their children-to-be in a country environment. The dry-grown vineyard they planted continues to be the turning point, the first winery established in an ex-whaling building (long since replaced by a purpose-built winery). The premature death of Ian at a time when the industry was buckling at the knees increased the already considerable difficulties the family had to deal with, but deal with it they did. Daughter Kim Tyrer is now CEO of the business, with Linda still very much involved in the day-to-day management of Galafrey. Exports to Canada and Singapore.
Established in 1977, the family-owned winery and all the grapes are grown and nurtured on their dry grown vineyard and estate bottled. Established by Ian Tyrer (1946-2003) Galafrey is survived by mother and daughter team, Linda and Kim Tyrer and Husband Nigel Rowe
