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.
Our vision is to focus on new-modern emerging varieties that offer something different to wine consumers. We firmly believe that Australia's future lies in creating lighter, more food friendly wines and we are dedicated to creating new and exciting varieties to offer existing wine drinkers and embrace potential wine drinkers.
We were very excited to have won the Winestate Australia and New Zealand Pinot Grigio category WINE OF THE YEAR in 2011 . Since then we have gone on to take out GOLD medals at the Royal Adelaide and the Royal Melbourne Wine Shows for our first release estate grown Fiano. This was the first Fiano produced from the Clare Valley. Since then we have won a Trophy for our Riesling at the Clare Valley Wine Show and a Trophy and best white of show (apart from Riesling) for our 2013 Fiano at the Clare Valley Wine Show. Two Gold medals at the Australia Alternative Varieties Wine Show late 2013, which a few short years takes our medal tally to over 80 with 3 Trophies.
"We will continue to produce new and exciting wines that offer wine lovers an Australian version of some outstanding new modern European varieties that show elegance and the ability to enjoy with food or alone."
