About
Sussex Squire Wines is a small award winning Clare Valley producer with a 5 star Halliday Winery Rating. We only sell through cellar door and have no retail distribution as we focus mainly on small production of Dry Grown RED WINES with our selection of one white and 6-8 reds. The line up of wines include the tasting of our premium award winning Shiraz from our Dry Grown vineyard that we manage with organic principles under vine. I produce other single vineyard wines from other varieties that showcase the Clare Valley including Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Mataro, Sangiovese, Grenache & Riesling. Visit our cellar door to taste our selection of wines while chatting to the winemaker and owners Mark and Skye with Milo the Jack Russell winery dog. There is a $10pp tasting fee, fully redeemable on purchase. Please BOOK A TASTING if your group is 4 people + as our cellar door is small and we do have limited capacity during busy periods.(Max Single Group size 10 people).

Having tasted relatively often in the Clare Valley over the years we asked for a recommendation from another winery for something new and they kindly suggested Sussex Squire (thanks Bec!). So pleased we asked. Such a warm reception and a stellar offering of reds (they also do a lovely fresh & flavoursome Riesling) and we particularly fell for the Limited Release Grenache, sublime drinking.

We were travelling around the region recently and happened upon Sussex Squire Wines.
Surprised and delighted would be an understatement. I love a good red wine and their range including the Mataro, the Thomas block Shiraz and the Samual block Cab Sav we’re all highlights.
Thanks Mark and Skye for the great conversation and information about the area.

We visited with our friends and had the tasting. Skye, the owner, gave us the Wine Tasting Talk and we enjoyed both the wine and her enthusiasm.
This is a Clare Valley winery that’s worth the visit.
Make sure you wave at the bloke in hi-viz working in the vines in the rain- that’s her husband!!

Walked to this wonderful winery from the Clare Caravan Park. Had to call for a lift back though as the wines we tried were superb so we needed a car to take our purchases back. A must visit location on a trip to the beautiful Clare Valley.

Visited this winery on a getaway in Clare. Lovely little cellar door with very friendly and knowledgeable winemaker. Well worth the visit for the quality of the wines. Particularly liked the Pinot Grigio, but the wines were all very good. The view from the cellar door was awesome.

We arrived here early on the morning of our tour and were greeted by the owner. We could easily have gone quite crazy on the wines we purchased due to so many being elegant and full of flavour.

This was easily our favourite winery in the region and well worth a visit.

We arrived late in the afternoon on a hot day haveing attended other local south Australian wineries and we were greeted with a big smile and welcome as only south Australians can do, no pretence just honest open arms and family friendly welcome.
The selection of wines is wide and each has its own unique taste , no blandness here just honest wines with a depth and honesty difficult to find elsewhere,and in this region that is a big statement.
Outstanding dedication and commitment.
Leave your preconceptions and bias at the door and be prepared to be blown away by
Some great produce.

Mark has great knowledge of his terroir (soil, water and climate) to get the best from his dry grown vines. They had run out of the Pinot Grigio, but we were able to sample and purchase from the Seven Hills Pub (yum). Just shared a bottle of the Mataro with the Boss and it slips down so smoothly. Make sure you get in early before SS sells out
