Located in the heart of Clare Valley, Knappstein is housed in the heritage listed Enterprise winery and brewery, established in 1878.It all began with Fanny Filgate, the daughter of enterprising Irishman Edward ‘Paddy’ Gleeson, best known for establishing the township of Clare. Fanny inherited her father’s entrepreneurial streak, opening the Enterprise Brewery in 1878 to satisfy thirsty local miners. Today, Knappstein’s winemaking team is led by Glenn Barry, who honed his skills in the Clare Valley and as far afield as Sicily, the Okanagan in Canada and Napa. Glenn’s winemaking philosophy reflects his love of fresh wines, with vibrant and pure flavours. Inspired by its rich brewing heritage, Knappstein opened a fully functioning microbrewery in 2006, and released the Knappstein Enterprise Reserve Lager, a premium Bavarian-style beer.
