Welcome to Wines by KT. I've been living and making wine in the Clare Valley district since 1998 and after eight years of managing historic Leasingham Wines I decided to establish my very own owned and operated wine business in 2006. The focus of Wines by KT is creating individual vineyard wines from the sustainably cared for Peglidis and Churinga vineyards, in Watervale, South Australia.
