Laughing Jack Wines was established in 1999, when our winemaker, Shawn Kalleske, made his first release of Laughing Jack Shiraz (now known as Greenock Shiraz). A total of 355 dozen was bottled and released to the market in 2002 – Laughing Jack Wines had begun!
Today Laughing Jack Wines is a family owned and operated winery consisting of parents Ian & Carol Kalleske alongside sons Nathan, Shawn and Damon Kalleske.
The vineyards and family farm are surrounded by majestic Blue and Red Gum trees (Eucalyptus species) which harbor the ‘Kookaburra’ bird, a member of the Kingfisher family. The Kookaburra bird is also known as the ‘Laughing Jack’.
