Winery:

Established in 1890 by Australian born brothers Herbert and Frederick Kay the heritage listed Kays Amery Winery celebrated its first grape crush in 1895 and is the oldest McLaren Vale winery still in founding family hands with third generation Colin Kay continuing the family winemaking tradition. Kay's are specialist traditional red wine makers utilising grapes from their own 22- hectare Amery Vineyard. Colin Kay's winemaking philosophy is to make rich full-bodied fruit-driven wines (using the original Open Fermenters and Basket Press) with small oak cask maturation.
