Clare Valley


Adelina Wines is a boutique winery/vineyard nestled in the Springfarm Valley between Wendouree and the Aberfeldy vineyards, just south of the township of Clare. All fruit is sourced from estate grown vines, which were established around 1910. These old dry grown vines yield mainly Shiraz and Grenache. However there are also small plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Pedro Ximénèz in addition to sourcing some of the best vineyards in South Australia to complete the dream. 

The Gardner family has owned the Springfarm vineyard since the mid-1980s and established Adelina Wines in 2000, with winemakers Jen Gardner and Col McBryde taking over responsibility for production in 2003. Whereas their ‘other’ project, Some Young Punks really pushed the envelope with imagery, varietal selections and a more fruit-driven style, Adelina is focused on purity and tension in the wine. With the Punks label now firmly dug in and continually producing wines that are ever more refined (without relinquishing an ounce of their joyful chutzpah), Col and Jen have now found the space and time to re-launch their original Estate label with a range of new releases (and new labels) that will rewrite the McBryde history books.

“What I love about the wines is that Jennie Gardner and Colin McBryde can pour just as much passion into producing serious wines with serious labels and serious sense of terroir (Adelina) as they do producing a range of fun, everyday drinking wines with gloriously garish pulp fiction labels ..." 
- Max Allen, The Future Makers 

The Adelina symbol, a circle within a square, within a circle: creativity and passion is represented as the inner circle, as they form the core of their beliefs. Excellence is represented by the square, as it is the standard that informs choices about methodology and execution. The outer circle signifies integrity, as it is consistent, complete and all encompassing.
