About the Company
Shaw + Smith was established in 1989 by cousins Michael Hill Smith MW and Martin Shaw.
Growing the best possible grapes, managing vineyards sustainably, and valuing vine health, soil health, and low yields are central to the Shaw + Smith approach. In the pursuit of quality, all grapes continue to be hand-picked, and the wines are fermented, aged, and bottled on site at Balhannah. The wines are vibrant, medium bodied expressions of their varieties that reflect their sites and region.
Shaw + Smith own three vineyards in the Adelaide Hills at Piccadilly, Balhannah, and Lenswood, totalling 59 hectares. The vineyards are planted to varieties that perform particularly well in the region, namely Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. The vineyards are currently in the first year of transition to organic certification.
