About Us

Welcome to Hare’s Chase, Barossa Valley

From our hilltop winery at Marananga, we revel in commanding views of one of the world’s most exciting winemaking landscapes. A patchwork quilt of vineyards planted across an ever-changing tapestry of ancient soils. 

Yielding wines of deep colour and great flavour concentration. Made from the ground up, expressing the special character of this remarkable place.

The Hare

The hare is a symbol of art and creativity, of vigilance and independence.

Sharp eyes and keen ears acutely sensitive to the surrounding elements. Powerful hind legs propelling them at high speed across the undulating landscape. A hare's innate ability to adapt and thrive in their environment is why they sit proudly on our labels as a symbol for our winemaking adventures.

Our Philosophy

Our aim is to produce wines that reflect the characteristics of this landscape, creatively pushing new boundaries along the way to convey the personality of the estate.

We know that the most exciting wines come from great vineyards that embrace
sustainable practices to reflect their sense of place

Matt Reynolds, Winemaker

With 20 years of winemaking experience Matt Reynolds brings exceptional skill and a deep understanding of the diverse Barossa landscape
to the task of crafting the Hare’s Chase wines.

His approach reflects a desire to promote a symbiotic connection between vineyard, winemaker and winery.

With a deep respect for the innate characteristics of
the region and the site Matt's aim is to showcase their distinctive strengths through each wine.

“The landscape of the Hare’s Chase estate at Marananga resembles a patchwork quilt of several soil types that varies as you traverse across subtle changes in aspect and elevation. Taking advantage of this diversity and the subtle character nuances in the fruit we grow here allows me to build greater complexity in wines that we aim to be an
exemplary reflection of the special nature of this place.” - Matt Reynolds, Winemaker
