Jim Barry The Armagh Shiraz

“The Armagh really stands in a league of its own when you consider great Clare Valley wine. A bold and uncompromising shiraz like The Armagh has come from humble beginnings to prominent international exposure.” – James Suckling.

Jim Barry “The Armagh” Shiraz is a quintessential Australian classic combining power, generosity and elegance. It distils the Barry family’s strong sense of tradition and generational winemaking, with the Clare Valley’s unique terroir character.

A truly family operated producer, this winery has had, and continues to have, multiple generations of winemakers producing great wine year after year.

About Jim Barry

Three generations of Barry family winemakers have shaped Jim Barry Wines into the benchmark Australian winery that it is today. Founded by industry pioneer, Jim Barry and his wife Nancy in1959 and located in South Australia’s Clare Valley, this family owned and operated winery produces premium, quality wines that express a sense of place.

The Barry family winery became the first in Australia to have three generations of winemakers graduate from Roseworthy/Waite school of Oenology. A wonderful achievement given the storied place of Roseworthy in the Australian winemaking history. Today, Jim and Nancy’s son, Peter, oversees the running of the business, along with his wife Sue (Brand Ambassador) and children Tom (Director of Winemaking), Sam (Director of Sales and Marketing) and Olivia (Brand Ambassador).

Following in the footsteps of his late Grandfather and Father, Tom Barry has assumed the role of Director of Winemaking, taking a hands on approach in creating the family’s wines. He looks to the past and embraces new technology to deliver wines of exemplary quality, consistency and balance.
