Adelina is a small winery and vineyard nestled in the Spring Farm Valley between the Aberfeldy and Wendouree vineyards, approximately 4km south/south east of the township of Clare.
The small vineyard has an elevation of approximately 450 metres above sea level, originally established circa 1910 yields mainly Shiraz, Grenache, and Cabernet Sauvignon, however there are also small plantings of Pinot Noir and Pedro Ximenes.
The Gardner family have owned the Spring Farm Estate (the site of both the Adelina winery and vineyards) since 1986. Prior to the inception of Adelina Wines in 2000, the property was managed by Will and Elaine Gardner and fruit was sold to Tim Adams.
From establishment, up until late 2002 the property and winery were run largely by Will and his daughter Jennie, at which point Colin McBryde was appointed as a winemaker, when production and management became the responsibility of he and Jennie. Both Colin and Jennie hold Ph.D?s in oenology, importantly they see themselves as custodians of an exciting vineyard and winery.
Their winemaking philosophy is simple: make wines which exhibit a sense of place, the definition of site, climate, and season, whilst utilising minimalist approaches. The Adelina Symbol A circle, within a square, within a circle: our symbol conveys our values.
