Skillogalee has built a world-class reputation for boutique, handcrafted wines. Their signature wines include vivacious riesling and deeply coloured, spicy shiraz. Skillogalee wines are produced exclusively from grapes grown on high quality estate vineyards. They are planted on the contour of the Skilly Hills at 500 metres above sea level. Yields are extremely low and intense fruit flavours are drawn from hand pruned, hand-picked vines. The small crush means wines are handmade in individual batches by the father and son winemaking team. Modern vinification facilities and techniques preserve fruit and aromatics in white wines, while traditional open fermenters and gentle basket pressing are used to maximise the flavour and colour of reds.
Skillogalee Location & History
Skillogalee is a boutique, family owned and operated winery located in the heart of South Australia’s picturesque Clare Valley.
The old stone cottage and cellar door were established in 1851 by Cornish miner, John Trestrail. He settled the property as a mixed home farm, then called Trevarrick. It was planted to stone fruit, currants and sultanas and later became a grazing property.
Skillogalee was established as a modern wine grape growing property in 1970, with the first wines released in 1976. The property was re-named after Skillogalee creek which winds through the lower end of the site. Today Skillogalee is owned and operated by Dave and Diane Palmer and family.
