OverviewShingleback is a single-estate, family-owned winery that controls all of the aspects of its winemaking process, from growing the fruit on its McLaren Vale vineyard, to the bottling of its wines.
Combining the love of winemaking, farming and business, brothers Kym and John Davey collaborated to develop the estate that was first farmed by their grandfather in 1997. Today, the estate has grown to produce some of the most prestigious wines in McLaren Vale, and has been awarded a 5-star winery rating by James Halliday for many years.
Housed in the original barn of the Aldersey Farm (circa 1890), visiting the tasting room is a rewarding experience for wine and history lovers alike. In winter, guests are encouraged to enjoy a glass of wine, while indulging in a personally selected regional platter by the fire. In Summer, the South Australian sunshine can be savoured either under the shade of the verandah or on the lawn, as visitors take in the surrounding views of the wineries Mataro vineyard. The knowledgeable and friendly team is always on-hand to offer tastings of current-release wines, as well as tasting room exclusives.
