Thorn-Clarke is without doubt one of the most exciting Barossa brands to enter the market in recent times. The name Thorn-Clarke derives literally from the relationship between two long time Barossa families. Founders David and Cheryl Clarke (nee Thorn), work with their son and daughter, Sam and Nicole, in this family orientated business. Together, they have four family owned vineyards in the Barossa and Eden Valley.
