The founder of Wirra Wirra, Robert Strangways Wigley, was a huge cricket fan, yet, unwilling to sandpaper the ball in-between overs he never quite made the Australian national team (sorry Australia, we’ve got to get the digs in where we can!) No doubt however, he would’ve made an excellent 12th man, taking care of the refreshments.

Take a sip of this sublime Chardonnay from the Adelaide Hills, bright with succulent flavours of lemon curd, apricot, sweet vanilla and buttered toast. Layered on a textural palate with moth-watering acidity that concludes with a long, mineral finish, and we’re sure you’ll agree that if he was bringing this Chardonnay, Robert would’ve been the best 12th man in the world!


Wirra Wirra is an aboriginal name meaning 'amongst the gum trees'. The winery was originally established in 1894 in Mclaren Vale, by a South Australian cricketer called Robert Strangways Wigley. It prospered and produced a variety of wines for export and the local market until Roberts death in 1925. The winery then went to rack and ruin and was eventually abandoned. In 1969 Greg Trott and his cousin Roger started to rebuild the winery and make it into the exciting place it is to visit today.

The philosophy of the late owner of Wirra Wirra, Greg Trott, was: “Never give misery an even break, nor bad wine a second sip. You must be serious about quality, dedicated to your task in life, especially winemaking, but this should all be fun.” This philosophy continues throughout the winery today.
