JJ Wines

Our Story

Upon arriving in Australia in the 1950’s Jeff Mason (1st generation) shared his last dollar with now wife Joan sharing a meat pie for dinner. Since that day Jeff and Joan (J&J) had 2 kids and have lead an extraordinary life together. Jeff with the support of his family established a business in the building trade here in Adelaide which still successfully operates today after 52 years in business and is run by his son Darrell(2nd generation).

Jeff being the “busy” person he is planted the now J&J Organic Vineyard on his 5.5ha property in the late 1990’s when he decided it was time to retire. Nearly 80 now Jeff has taken a step back from working life and now provides his invaluable knowledge of the vineyard and in business to son Darrell who is now the owner of the J&J Vineyard and is the engine room behind the brand.

Our Vineyard

The J&J’s Rivers Lane organic vineyard is owned and operated by three family generations and is located at the edge of the McLaren Vale township. The maritime influence of the nearby coastline, combined with rich fertile soils consisting of sandy red clay over limestone, provides ideal conditions for producing premium wine grapes.

Here at Rivers Lane, the superb terroir that has made McLaren Vale internationally renowned is equaled by J & J’s dedication to organic viticulture, sustainability and a family tradition of excellence. It’s a passion that is reflected in these hand-crafted, small release wines. The award winning Shiraz wines J&J produce from their single vineyard site are of intense flavour and deep colour with elegance, structure, power and complexity.

Produced in partnership with experienced winemaker Scott Rawlinson, who believes that making a good drop starts in the vineyard, the resulting wines are true to varietal character and express the influences of terroir and regionality. As rich as the soils and surrounding environment of this great place are, so are the wines.
