Pike & Joyce
The Pike & Joyce brand was established in 1998 and represents the coming together of two 5th generation South Australian families to form a partnership in wine.
The Pike family, long established in winemaking and viticulture, and the Joyce family, fifth generation horticulturists, have combined their resources to develop this 18 ha joint venture cool climate vineyard at Lenswood in the Adelaide Hills.

Pikes Oakbank Beer
The Pike family’s combined tradition of wine and beer has once again been evoked with the return of Pike’s Oakbank Beer. Henry Pike established the family brewing business in the small Adelaide Hills township of Oakbank in 1886 and Pikes re-introduced a beer 110 years later in 1996.
The current brew is a traditional Pilsener style that offers flavour, elegance and finesse. A limited release Stout is also available from Pikes Cellar Door Sales or on line.

Gaelic Cemetery Vineyard
Gaelic Cemetery Wines is a joint venture between Pikes Wines, a long standing Pikes grower Grant Arnold and the Barletta Brothers. The brief for the venture is simple, and that is to craft small volumes of a super premium, single vineyard Clare Valley wine that best reflects the vintage, variety and uniqueness of place that is the “Gaelic Cemetary Vineyard” just to the north of the Clare township.

The brand ‘Clare Hills’ is owned by Pikes. This brand was created to assist in fully utilising the fantastic fruit resources that are at our disposal from both our own vineyards and those of our growers in the Clare Valley.
While basically they are export labels (with significant volumes being shipped to the UK, Canada and USA) small quantities do find their way into the domestic marketplace here in Australia.
While not of the superior quality of our premium Pikes brands, they do offer excellent drinking for a very reasonable price.
