The People behind Thorpe Wines The Thorpe family planted a 17 acre vineyard in 1997 on red brown clay over limestone along Malpas Road in McLaren Vale. Producing award winning wines since 2003, we make artisanal premium wines from our own mature vineyard and from our trusted friends and neighbors. Although we call McLaren Vale our home, we are interested in making delicious wines from excellent grapes sourced honestly from anywhere we see potential. The recent partnership between owner Nicole Thorpe and former NYC sommelier Brad Hickey has created a new vision to broaden Thorpe’s existing range of high caliber wines. Thorpe Wines is family owned and operated. The Vineyard Situated straddling a beautiful eastward facing rise in McLaren Vale, the Thorpe Estate Vineyard was planted in 1997 on red brown clay over limestone soil along Malpas Road. The vines are oriented in North-South rows and are trained using the double cordon technique. The 17 acre vineyard consists of 1 acre of Nero d’Avola, 11 acres of Shiraz, and 5 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon. We hand-pick and machine harvest according to the parcels we are gathering. The vineyard is managed using all the tools at our disposal to produce the best quality grapes possible. Minimal intervention is our credo. Read less
