Pike & Joyce is perched high in the Adelaide Hills (593m above sea level) just 40 minutes from the CBD with spectacular 180 degree views of the hills, Onkaparinga Valley and beyond.
Established in 1998, our brand is a partnership between two families who both share a love of the region, a passion for food and viticulture, and a desire to produce only the finest wine.
But what we have created is not just your average cellar door – we have captured the sights, sounds and tastes of the Adelaide Hills in one amazing experience.
The Joyce family, as fifth generation horticulturists, and the Pike family, who are long established in winemaking and viticulture, brought this vision to life in the development of 25 hectares of land at Lenswood, commencing in 1998.
The cool climate, the gravelly loam soil, the sloping land and its lofty elevated position (the vineyards being some of the highest in the Adelaide Hills) provide the terroir for the production of the highest quality cool climate wine grapes. Accordingly the wines produced have a distinctive and sub regional character.
The Joyce family has owned and managed orchards for over five generations, and as such, the vines are cared for in a very traditional sense, hand pruned and hand picked. This ensures the finest grapes are produced, before being transported for vinification at the Pike’s long established and highly awarded, Clare Valley Winery.
The Pike Family have long been a part of viticulture with Andrew and Neil Pike working together within their respective fields, to ensure a perfect balance of winemaking philosophy. Traditional old-world techniques combined with modern Australian winemaking to produce a style reflecting both the variety and region and of course the season.
Perhaps it is no surprise that the Pike & Joyce wines have established a reputation as some of the Adelaide Hills’ finest.
