A red wine story…

If you love red wines, then come and join us at cellar door. Sussex Squire Wines is a small family-owned award-winning Clare Valley winery and cellar door with a focus on producing small parcels of dry grown single vineyard Clare Valley red wines. The small 2-3 ton parcels we yield will only produce 100-150 dozen of each wine variety that include Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Malbec, Mataro and Grenache. Due to the small production our wines are only available from cellar door or through our on-line wine store.

If you would like to learn more about the Clare Valley red wine story and explore the varieties which make the region distinct to other red wine regions of Australia, then please join us for a tasting.  We are 4th Generation to farm in the Clare Valley and our passion is to find and also grow small parcels of fruit to make expressive wines from special vineyards that have depth and intensity. Guided by the vintage conditions, we produce our small batch red wines to reflect the conditions and to tell a story… we manage our vineyard organically and sustainably and our wines are aged in old and new French oak and are unfined and unfiltered.

The most exciting tasting in Clare
A new, but super exciting winery in the Clare Valley. Not too many wines, but the quality and variety is superb. Each wine has its own character, which means you don’t get lost amongst an endless list of similarities. Brilliant!

Quiet Tuesday afternoon
Very interesting talk with Skye about many things both wine-related and not. I was alone, with her, for quite some time as we went through the line-up of the red wines. Some seemed to be in need of time in a cellar, but that may be more of a reflection of my preferences. I enjoyed them greatly and will recommend a visit there to my friends.

What people are saying

Incredible red wines!
Mark has done an outstanding job with his family winery. Very knowledgeable to say the least! Well done, our best visit in the Clare valley. Well done, we will be back!
