More About Dolan Wines
Winemaking legend Bryan Dolan was born in Clare 1930, the son of Arthur, Clare High School's headmaster
Arthur’s father and uncle, Arthur (Tim) and Thomas respectively, were the sons of Thomas Dolan, an Irish immigrant who settled in Clare circa 1860. These two brothers initiated the Dolan winemaking passion and pedigree when they commenced developing an 88 acre vineyard and small winery in 1895 on Dolan Road at Stanley Flat, just north of the Clare township. Bryan’s family moved to the southeast of South Australia where he grew up in Naracoorte. This rural environment led him to enrol in agricultural studies at Roseworthy College. When the first oenology course was offered a year later, Bryan signed on and subsequently graduated in 1949. That same year he accepted a job offered by Henry Martin, owner of the Stonyfell and Saltram vineyards and wineries. Dolan»
