About Us

Byrne: Family Owned; Estate Grown: Sustainably Made.
Celebrating 50 years and 3 generations in wine.

Byrne wines express our family’s dedication to the land and the highest quality estate grown wines.  Rob Byrne together with daughter Petria and Rob’s brother Terry and his wife Elise form the family drive behind the business started by their parents in the 1960s.

We excel at producing the classic Australian wines (Shiraz/Cabernet/Chardonnay/Riesling) recognised around the world as well as new alternative varieties and styles that suit our vineyards and environment perfectly.   With numerous Trophy and Gold medal winners in the range, along with environmental awards for excellence in water management and sustaining the natural environment, a commitment to research and innovation, Byrne stands for quality for today and sustainability for the future. Sourced from our Clare Valley and Riverland vineyards of South Australia, we have 400 hectares of estate vineyards, making Byrne Vineyards one of South Australia’s largest  family owned estate grown wine producers.

Byrne is a recognised leader in environmental sustainability with its preservation efforts of the Scotts Creek Wetlands located on our property, adoption of Freshcare Code of Practice Environmental Viticulture, being the first in South Australia to have an accredited wetland management plan and permanent wetland water licence, adopting state of the art water technology that has allowed 240 million litres to be returned to the Murray Darling for increased environmental flows. The Scotts Creek Wetlands one of South Australia’s largest natural wetland environments and home to many rare and endangered native flora and fauna.

Byrne Vineyards supply wines around the world to UK, Europe, Scandinavia, Japan, China, Asia, North America and Australia.

 

Sustainability for the environment and community is integral in what we do.
