Shirvington was founded in 1996 by Paul and Lynne Shirvington (with sons Tony and Mark), with the planting of Shiraz and
Cabernet Sauvignon vines in their first vineyard, Redwind. The 16 hectares of red clay and limestone soil are located in Willunga,
just south of McLaren Vale, that was chosen by the Shirvingtons for the area’s ability to consistently produce outstanding table
wines of great character and quality. Further purchases in 1997 and 2001 saw the dev elopment of two new vineyards, Kurrawyba
and Manjalda, in McLaren Flat and McLaren Vale itself.
