The Winery

Born under 'the moon and the stars' in 1892

In today’s climate of global corporate wine ownership and multi beverage models, Pirramimma has stood the test of time from 1892 to today.

Still family owned and run, and largely from the same property founded by AC Johnston over a century ago comprising over 100 hectares of prime McLaren Vale fruit, Pirramimma and the Johnston family are synonymous with McLaren Vale. Four generations of Johnston’s have called McLaren Vale home, making Pirramimma one of Australia’s oldest wineries to still be in family control.

Our soils, once worked to exhaustion under a traditional European philosophy of farming have been for decades nurtured slowly back to organic health. Our wines, respected and revered worldwide are the end product of knowing intimately the certain characteristics of our home vineyards.

Geoff Johnston, current custodian himself celebrated fifty vintages alone at Pirramimma, giving the wines the best possible chance of being picked and nurtured into some of Australia’s best wines. We have pioneered varieties suited to the region, such as Petit Verdot and Tannat, which with the climate changing around us are best suited to McLaren Vale and our taste profile. The acclaim speaks for itself, with Pirramimma being awarded in 2020 it’s fourth AWC Vienna Best Australian Producer title. - Information from Pirramimma Website
