Wirra Wirra

In 1894 Robert Strangways Wigley, a former state cricketer and lovable eccentric purchased 240 acres of
land in McLaren Vale and established Wirra Wirra. In a burgeoning era for McLaren Vale as a wine region, Wirra Wirra was a major player with a reputation for quality. Wigley died in 1926 which led to the winery’s closure in 1936 and the beautiful ironstone cellars of Wirra Wirra were left to ruin.

In 1969 another visionary saw two crumbling walls and a stubborn slate fermenter and had a dream to resurrect Wirra Wirra to its former glory. Richard Gregory “Greg” Trott enlisted his Cousin Roger and they purchased the site and spent the next three years counting pennies, hauling rocks and re-building the bones of Wirra Wirra. Greg’s love for building and dreaming continued until his passing in 2005, yet his legacy lives on at Wirra Wirra.

Today, Wirra Wirra is known the world over for its exemplary Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvigon and Grenache from McLaren Vale and Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling from the neighbouring cool climate Adelaide Hills. Wirra Wirra’s home in McLaren Vale is surrounded by estate vineyards which are biodynamically farmed and includes a café and cellar door. In 2021 Wirra Wirra was recognised as a Global Winner of the Great Wine Capitals Tourism Award.
