In the late 1890's the Blue Cutting Road was hand dug by Polish settlers whilst waiting for gainful employment. Blue Cutting Road is situated in the area known today as the Polish Hill River region of the Clare Valley. Not only does this road remain a usable summer bush track connecting two main roads, it dissects the two vineyards that provide valuable, flavoursome fruit for a range of O'Leary Walker wines. Much of the settlers' influences have filtered throughout the beautiful Clare Valley and many of the fruits of their labours are still evident today. We pay homage to their enduring qualities with this wine.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

David O'Leary and Nick Walker both have a love of winemaking, a desire to create something exceptional and a strong affinity with the Australian wine industry.

After working for large companies for twenty years and amassing over 300 gold medals and 60 trophies(including a Jimmy Watson and twice International Red Wine Maker of the Year), David and Nick had achieved just about everything that a winemaker could.

A new challenge beckoned and David and Nick's belief in their winemaking skills and their confidence in the fruit and the vineyards available to them was the catalyst for them to establish their own venture based in South Australia's picturesque Clare Valley.

As with all things in life, a window of opportunity opens only a few times and they believed it was their turn to step up, have a go and return to what winemaking is all about, making great wine from great vineyard sites.

O'Leary Walker Wines was born.
