Celebrating over 50 years

The Skillogalee Story

Skillogalee is set amongst wooded hills in the heart of the picturesque Sevenhill subregion, part of South Australia’s world-renowned Clare Valley, one of Australia’s oldest wine regions.

Established in 1970, the family-owned vineyards and winery have been releasing award-winning hand-crafted wines for over 50 years. Our grapes are grown in our own sustainably managed vineyards and produce wines with an exceptional expression of place.

In addition to being a highly-regarded regional wine producer, our historic cellar door and restaurant have been open daily for over 30 years and have become a cherished destination for generations of people from around Australia, and around the world.


Our award-winning dry Riesling has been made for over 50 years. The grapes are grown on low-yielding vines, on the highest slopes of the Skillogalee estate (about 500m above sea level). The family-owned vineyard is managed sustainably to produce exceptional quality fruit.


Premium Shiraz grapes were carefully harvested for this wine, from low yielding, dry grown vines, on the slopes around the Skillogalee Homestead, standing at approximately 450m above sea level. The wine is then aged in French and American oak before being released.


The Cabernets is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec producing a beautiful aromatic wine with ageing potential. The fruit for this wine comes from unirrigated, hand-pruned and hand-picked vines grown on the Skillogalee Estate.


The blend composition is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon with the remainder comprising Malbec. Hand selected dry-grown fruit, harvested specifically for this wine, has resulted in a stylish wine with intense fruit character and varietal expression.
