Claymore wines began in 1997 when an Adelaide medical professional, Dr. Anura Nitchingham realised the opportunity to indulge his passions for: great wine, rock music and his love for Liverpool Football Club (Anura was sent to Liverpool to study during the 1970s and 1980s.
Many of Claymore's wines are named after some of the world's legendary rock songs, albums and artists. The sensory connection for Anura was genuine. To him, the labels are those that resonate beyond their time, across generations and have become something of modern classics; he holds similar aspirations for his wines. To silence any critics who may see the rock icons as a gimmick, Claymore Wines has grown into a serious boutique wine business.
