JAESCHKES HILL RIVER CLARE ESTATE: OUR STORY
A Family Farming Business
We have been broad-acre farming in the Hill River Valley since 1963 and in May 2010 purchased the neighbouring vineyard, originally named Penfolds Clare Estate.
This was the Jaeschke family introduction to viticulture, which in turn has led to our love of wines over the years.
The vineyard is part of the families broader farming business including, cropping, livestock, poultry, hay processing and export.
Hill River Clare Estate is very much a family operation. We have lived in the Hill River District for more than 50 years. Our family, including our young grandchildren are all actively involved in the farm and vineyard operations.
