Varney Wines

Fleurieu Peninsula

Located at the Gateway to McLaren Vale with sweeping views over the rolling hills of the Onkaparinga Gorge, Varney Wines is set in a lovingly restored, heritage-listed 1870s Limestone Barn.

Their winemaking approach is traditional yet sensitive.

He is not afraid to step out of the box and go with his intuition, gleaned from years of winemaking experience in Australia and abroad. He utilises whole bunch and/or whole berry addition, extended cold soaks, wild yeast, submerged cap fermentation, foot treading, carbonic maceration, and extended time on skins. As he says “Whatever the fruit calls for really”. There is no set fermentation regime in the winery. He only uses old seasoned oak and does not rely on fining or filtration. Ferments are closely monitored and the various tools and tricks of the trade are utilised to guide the fruit through its journey from vineyard to bottle.
