The Shaw Family Vintners

The Shaw family has over 40 years of wine industry experience as a vigneron and vintner. Their dream for family involvement inspired Richard and Marie to expand from 5 acres to over 1,200 acres to become one of the largest owners of vineyards in the premium cool climate regions of McLaren Vale and Currency Creek in South Australia.

The Shaw family vision included producing high quality wine for the enjoyment of global wine connoisseurs. In the year 2000 the construction of their ultra modern, state-of-the-art winery was completed.
The wine is produced from grapes picked from the family vineyards and is produced at the Winery located in Currency Creek. Shaw Family Vintners have a distinguished range of labels comprised of Shaw Family Vintners, Stonemason, Steeple Jack and premium brands, Single Vineyard, Emetior and RMS.

The McLaren Vale region is located 45 minutes south of Adelaide, the capital of South Australia. This region was first planted with vines in the 19th century and has a maritime climate. The afternoon sea breezes are essential to producing wines that exhibit soft, round, normally full bodied wine with intense earthy flavours.
McLaren Vale is renowned for red grape variety wines. Shaw Family Vintners own some of the oldest vineyards (over 100 years old) in this region. These vineyards produce fruit of intense flavour concentration that make Shaw Family Vintners a sought after producer of ultra premium wine.

The Currency Creek region is located 65 minutes south of Adelaide and is 20 minutes from the McLaren Vale region via a picturesque, winding road over the Mt Lofty Ranges. This region is located adjacent to Lake Alexandrina and is within 4 km (3 miles) from the Southern Ocean and benefits from cool sea breezes that help with a slow but clean ripening. This climate allows the grapes sugar and flavour levels to develop while retaining a balanced natural acidity. Cooler than McLaren Vale and the neighbouring Langhorne Creek regions.
Wine experts laud the Currency Creek region for producing consistent style, ultra premium quality and outstanding varietal definition wines.
