In our relatively brief history, Terra Vino has built a reputation of producing quality wines from varieties that are best suited to McLaren Vale and its neighbouring regions.

Terra Vino or ‘Wine Country’ describes the part of the world in which we live. One that shares its rich food and wine culture proudly with a tip of the cap to the Italian migrants who have played a large role in the history and success of the wine industry here. Based in McLaren Vale, Terra Vino works to foster long term relationships with our grower base to ensure our wines are of the highest standard and consistency is maintained. Always looking to grow our customer base, we look forward to ongoing engagement with local and international wine consumers as our passion for producing wines of great quality continues.

    Passionate about all things wine, Geoff ‘Joffa’ Thompson took the plunge in his late 20’s to change career and follow his dream of becoming a winemaker. Having completed winemaking studies and patiently working his way to Chief Winemaker at a large company, Joffa had the passion and drive to begin his own wine brand. And so, Terra Vino was born and he and hasn’t looked back. With McLaren Vale being the winemaking home, his passion for the Adelaide Hills and Fleurieu wine regions brings alive this complimentary trinity of neighbouring regions within the range of wines. He aspires to create wines of balance, texture, nuance and great character, to be shared with friends.

    Read Bio

    Growing up in wine obsessed McLaren Vale it was only natural that Matt ‘Jacko’ Jackman developed a strong passion for wine and looked to carve a career out of it. An Oenology graduate from the University of Adelaide, Jacko sought vintage experience here and overseas in Burgundy, France and Oregon, USA before returning to McLaren Vale – the home of the Terra Vino. He continues to work closely with Joffa as he has done since the brand’s inception to craft the wines from grape to bottle. The enthusiasm and experience he brings is invaluable in helping to create our range of wines that we really believe has something for everyone!

Our Vineyards

Being based in McLaren Vale and with the regions of the Adelaide Hills, Langhorne Creek and the Fleurieu nearby, we’re able to handcraft our wines from premium vineyards that we’ve been working with for a number of years. We work hand in glove with our growers to ensure that our grapes are picked at the optimum ripeness, resulting in wines of beautiful balance and elegance. We love working with grapes from these regions and the wonderful diversity which they offer.
