Thorn-Clarke Wines


Awards & Accolades

Thorn-Clarke are having a terrific run at the moment on the back of some fantastic awards and accolades over the last few months.

It seemed to all start with the 2004 Shotfire Ridge Quartage being awarded the top wine of the Adelaide Wine Show and has progressed from there with trophys and gold medals at other wine shows, high scores from Parker and Wine Spectator in the USA and a resultant increase in interest in our wines from all over the world.

Our Cellar Door is located around 2.5 km East of Angaston (signs from the top of the main street) if you happen to be in the Barossa. Our Cellar Door traffic is increasing and people are discovering a real surprise. An out of the way Cellar Door, with amazingly good value (ie The Shotfire’s are $20 and we have stock!), highly acclaimed wines and a great view of typically beautiful Eden Valley vineyard country.

We look forward to seeing you!
