Grosset Wines is an independently owned winery producing seven highly regarded premium wines each vintage.

Established in 1981, the winery is situated in the historic township of Auburn at the southern tip of the Clare Valley, 100 kilometres north of Adelaide.
While in its third decade, annual production is capped at 10,000 cases (dozens), predominantly produced from twenty hectares of estate vineyards. Remaining small and focused has allowed Grosset to preserve the character and individuality of the wines, developing a significant international profile by producing wines deemed consistently outstanding, benchmarks in their class.

Grosset Wines’ philosophy has remained steadfast over thirty years. The emphasis is on purity of fruit. Vineyards are hand-tended, and each bunch of grapes is harvested at optimum ripeness.   The winemaking process is gentle and uncomplicated. With dedication, discipline and the application of knowledge garnered through decades of experience, the result is the finest expression of variety and place.

Indeed, it is this singular focus on place which best exemplifies Grosset Wines, for site selection has been a major preoccupation, and the art is to capture the uniqueness of each. Terroir is the word most often used in wine, but for Jeffrey Grosset, pangkarra, the Aboriginal word which describes a far broader and more embracing relationship, the concept of actually belonging to the land itself, and becoming a part of it, is a more meaningful approach. It is this comprehensive outlook which enables Grosset to produce wines of such distinction and individuality.

Jeffrey Grosset, owner and founder, has always been an innovator, challenging tradition and questioning accepted practices. He campaigned to institute the legal integrity of the riesling grape in Australia, was a leading proponent for the introduction of screwcap closures and privately funded research into the subject.

Jeffrey Grosset was voted the inaugural Australian Winemaker of the Year by Gourmet Traveller WINE in 1998, and is internationally recognised as one of the ‘Top 10 White Winemakers’ (Decanter, UK) and one of the ‘50 Most Influential Winemakers’ (Wine & Spirits, USA) in the world today.
