History

ArtWine was established in 2008 by Judy & Glen Kelly. With our backgrounds in international marketing and banking, we have now combined our skills to create and build our brand. Together we manage the ArtWine brand and our exciting wine “future”, made all the more exciting by the opening of our new cellar door.

ArtWine has two vineyards, with vineyard accommodation in the Clare Valley and a third vineyard with our new architecturally designed Cellar Door in the Adelaide Hills at 72 Bird in Hand Road, Woodside.

The Team

Judy & Glen Kelly (Owners)

Glen oversees the management of the vineyards and the financial side of the business while Judy manages the Sales & Marketing and management of their new Cellar Door in the Adelaide Hills, at 72 Bird in Hand Road, Woodside.

Glen has owned vineyards since 1997 and by 2002 was totally inspired by the lighter style European varieties so he planted Tempranillo, Pinot Gris, Viognier and Graciano to add to the existing classic Clare varieties already planted, of Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache (approx 100 year old bush vines), Cabernet Franc and Riesling. The most recent addition to our vine family is the Italian variety Fiano which produced its first award winning vintage in 2012 with Montepulciano also planted in 2012.

Judy & Glen then purchased a second vineyard with stunning views on the other side of the Valley which also encompasses our self contained vineyard accommodation, ArtWine Cottages. The vineyard is planted to Riesling, Cabernet & Shiraz and we have since grafted some vines to Tempranillo.

Having previously sold our fruit to major award winning wine producers it was in 2008 when we took the leap and launched our ArtWine label. More recently we have purchased a vineyard in the scenic slightly cooler climate of Woodside in the Adelaide Hills where our stunning architecturallydesigned cellar door is housed. Currently planted to Pinot Noir, Merlot and Prosecco with plans for other new-emerging varieties soon.

Our wines are made in joint collabaration with Judy & Glen Kelly and our contract winemaker from WineWise, Joanne Irvine.

Joanne has a degree in oenology from the University of Adelaide and has worked in a number of Australian and American wineries where she developed a strong affection for exotic varieties. She was awarded UK’s International Wine Challenge, Red Winemaker of the Year in London in 2006 and was the Barossa Valley Winemaker of the year in 2009 and was inducted as a Baron of the Barossa in 2014.

Estate Vineyards / AVA

ArtWine focuses on making wines from new-modern emerging varietals that are perfectly suited to the Mediterranean climates of both the Clare Valley and the slightly cooler climate of the Adelaide Hills, South Australia.

All of our fruit is estate grown and the alternative varieties have been planted by us since 2002.

We have two vineyards in the Clare Valley, Sawmill Road, Sevenhill and Springfarm Road, Clare and a vineyard in Bird in Hand Road, Woodside, in the Adelaide Hills where our Cellar Door is situated.

We grow a massive 14 varieties, Pinot Gris, Viognier, Fiano, Riesling, Tempranillo, Grenache, Graciano, Shiraz, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Prosecco and Montepulciano.

The wine starts in the vineyard, our vines are nurtured to produce fruit of exceptional quality that showcases the regions ability to grow alternative and exotic varieties and produce exceptional wines.
