Kay Brothers Amery Vineyard

Price: Wines from $22

The Kay Brothers McLaren Vale Amery Vineyards grace the rolling foothills of the Southern Mt.Lofty Ranges, bordering St. Vincent’s Gulf and 40km south of Adelaide city. Established in 1890 by Australian born brothers Herbert and Frederick Kay, the Heritage Listed Kays Amery Winery celebrated its first grape crush in 1895 and is the oldest McLaren Vale winery still in founding family hands with third generation, Colin Kay, continuing the family winemaking tradition.

The winery is located at the top of a hill not far from the township of McLaren Vale.  The cellar door, which is part of the original Winery complex, boasts some stunning panoramic views of the surrounding picturesque valleys and hillsides.

The welcome at cellar door is as friendly as the view is seductive, so allow plenty of time during your visit to taste the renowned traditional premium estate wines and explore the Kay Family diaries dating from 1891.

Kays are specialist, traditional red wine makers, utilising grapes from their own 22-hectare Amery Vineyard.  The grape varieties grown are Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Viognier, Grenache, Mourvedre (Mataro) and Muscat Blanc. Colin Kay’s winemaking philosophy is to make rich full-bodied fruit-driven wines, using the original open fermenters and basket press, with small oak cask maturation.

The Kay Brothers Amery Vineyard range of fine wines includes Block 6 Shiraz (from vines planted in 1892), Hillside Shiraz, Basket Press Shiraz, Grenache, Moscato, Founders Very Old Tawny Solera, and Founders Grand Liqueur Muscat.
