Our home

McLaren Vale is a small township in South Australia, famous for wine, beaches and acting as the gateway to the Fleurieu Peninsula. More information is available here: www.mclarenvale.info

My partner Steve and I set up Loom Wine in 2005. He is, how can I put this politely, a “think-on-his-feet” type so our business has evolved, somewhat organically, to meet ever-changing demands within the wine industry. Celebrating our yearly harvest by crafting small batch wines on site here at McLaren Vale Winemakers, we sell them onsite, in the city at our shop and online via Five O’clock Somewhere and our Send a Bottle With Love initiative. We also provide packaged wines and other service provisions for a variety of organisations here and overseas with Fuse Wine Services.


In 2006, we purchased 10 acres of land on Chalk Hill Road, on a hill in the heart of vineyards and overlooking the valley of McLaren Vale and Willunga ranges. We turned the existing house into offices and added a winery, barrel shed, bar, a much loved wood fired oven and at the top of the hill, a straw bale home. As documented on the blog, we host regular weekend events to promote musicians and local produce teamed with our wine and open the bar on Friday nights, during vintage, for our Harvest Bar. At the moment, we are building a creamery for a lovely, local cheese maker and setting up a workshop to turn reclaimed timbers, including our used barrels from the winery, into furniture.
