Jim Barry x McGrath Foundation

Jim Barry Wines Partners with McGrath Foundation

We (the Barry family) are proud to be part of this significant partnership with Jim Barry Wines and the McGrath Foundation. Every bottle of Rose sold will help fund specialist McGrath Breast Care Nurses, who support the 1 in 7 Australians diagnosed with breast cancer each year. Our lives have been touched by breast cancer and we are committed to using what we have, to do what we can, for those fighting their own battle.

We are honoured to have partnered with one of Australia’s most trusted charities, the McGrath Foundation, and we’re set to raise $420,000 to fully fund a specialist McGrath Breast Care Nurse in South Australia.

While we at Jim Barry are big supporters of breast care nurses and what they do for thousands of Australian families, we also have a very personal connection to the cancer. Olivia-Hoffmann Barry, wife of Jim Barry Wines third generation winemaker, Tom Barry has for many years been intrinsically linked to breast cancer through her parents, Dr Clive Hoffmann, who was a breast cancer surgeon for 35 years, and her own mother, Anne Marie was also diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020.

“Our family has actively fundraised for breast cancer charities for years. As the diagnosis of my mum has once again brought breast cancer back into our lives, it’s made us all think about how we can help raise money for thousands of Australian families as they navigate breast cancer with what we do so well every day, and that is wine.”

The Rose showcases a striking pink striped capsule and label featuring a female cricketer – based on our popular Cabernet Sauvignon, The Cover Drive – a fitting label for the McGrath Foundation founded by the late Jane McGrath and her husband Glenn in 2005.

With a very personal connection to breast cancer in our family, creating this Rose allows us not only to raise vital funds, but also awareness of this insidious disease.

We invite you to be part of this journey to raise money for McGrath Breast Care Nurses by purchasing a bottle of the Rose from Dan Murphy's or on our online shop.
