Wirra Wirra is an aboriginal name meaning “amongst the gum trees”. Established in McLaren Vale in 1894 by well-known South Australian eccentric Robert Strangways Wigley, it was one of the first South Australian wineries to export across the globe in the early 1900s. Wirra Wirra has been proudly exporting wines to the world for over 100 years.
The Wirra Wirra tribe are serious about the wines they make and the biodynamic vines they grow, but believe it should always be fun. Famous for their outlandish ideas and sense of humour, the winery is home to as giant water-melon hurling catapult, host to hobby horse races and has a ¾ tonne bell that rings on occasion.
