SA Life - January 2014 - Doorways to Wine by David Sly

Judy & Glen Kelly built their idea for boutique winery ArtWine around their love of artworks in tandem with thier bold new vineyard plantings in Clare and the Adelaide Hills. Now their full vision comes to fruition with the opening of the ArtWine Cellar Door complex at 72 Bird-in-Hand Rd, Woodside. The high-gabled architecturally designed pavilion combines a spacious tasting room with a gallery showcasing an exhibition by Jen Prior. Importantly their wines match the quality of the cellar door fit out - especially emerging varieties from Spain and Italy, which have won ArtWine significant trophies at leading wine shows
