Greg Cooley Wines is a wine, food and entertainment destination surrounded by vineyards in the Clare Valley wine region. Rated a 5 star winery in James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion 2015, Greg Cooley Wines is one of the more boutique wine producers. located here in the Clare Valley Wine Region.
Wines are designed with food, family and friends in mind and like Greg have an unerring knack for delighting and surprising their audience. Greg's wines are a little special, a little different and are only available direct via the website, an annual wine lunch series of the more recently opened Cellar Door situated at the old Neagles Rock site.
Perhaps the best way to sum up our wines is to say that while we do make a lot of wines, we don't make a lot of wine! Total production is around 3,500 cases a year and for some wines as little as 120 dozen are made.
Whilst the classic Clare varieties of Riesling, Shiraz and Cabernet are well represented, you'l always find something a little left of centre like a Clare Pinot Noir, a wild fermented Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, a Sangiovese, Grenache Shiraz or Merlot Cabernet Franc to peak your interest. We also have a focus on Sparkling wines with Sparkling Shiraz, Bubbles and Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc in the stable and a number of sweet wines available for the closet sweeties!
Each of our wines are named after people who've been of influence to Greg over the years and their influence is as varied as the wine styles - from South Australian author and Clare girl Monica McInerney to Greg's greyhound vet Graham Beh!
We live at the northern end of Clare with our finest release yet our 2 year old son Max and our pet greyhound Mickey. Our philosophy is simple: ‘Good wines, good friends, grand times’ and we have all of this in spades at Greg Cooley Wines. We run lot's of live music functions, dinners and special events at the Cellar Door either in the back room or on the lawns so check out our events page to see what we've been up to and more importantly what's happening when you're next here in the Clare Valley, South Australia.
We hope you enjoy our wines responsibly, in moderation and of course in the company of good friends and hope to see you in at Cellar Door real soon. We're open 7 days from 10.30am - 5pm, as well as on long weekends and public holidays. We're a family owned and operated winery and one of 40 plus Clare Valley Cellar Doors, so we hope we end up a must top on your list when you're passing through!
