Wine maker notes
When the Clarke forbearers discovered gold in 1870 at the Lady Alice mine in the Barossa goldfields, so began a family dynasty intrigued by geology. A fine legacy that is reflected today in the terroir of our vineyards. The Shotfire range immortilises the Shotfirer’s hazardous job of setting and lighting the charges in the mines.

Producer
The Thorn-Clarke Philosophy Our ancestors settled in the Barossa in the 1870’s and for six generations we have been involved in the wine industry. Over those 140 years a lot has changed in the Barossa however many features of the region have remained constant, many of the observations over the years have been the foundation for what is today our philosophy. We take a long-term view of the future, and out goal is to ensure our children and the next six generations inherit a successful, respected, and environmentally sustainable business. We recognise and value the role that our suppliers, distributors, retailers and customers play in this goal and we seek to develop long-term partnerships based on loyalty, trust and quality. The Quality Objective Given our plans to be a premium wine producer well into the future, producing high quality regional wines with character, that also offer our customers value is critical. From the time our first vineyards were established we have been extremely thorough in ensuring all the ingredients for success were in place. Our four vineyards have all been site selected to ensure we can provide the ideal growing conditions for each variety. The attention to detail carries through to the winemaking side, with our winery located at the Milton Park vineyard – here at the winery we ensure that our wines over deliver in quality across a number of different price points. In summary; Regional Barossa and Eden Valley wines, grown on family owned vineyards with the utmost care taken from the vineyards to the bottle. This ensures every time our customers purchase a bottle of Thorn-Clarke wine, they know where it is from, the care taken and the outstanding quality and value offered.
