About Sarnia Capital
Who we are
Sarnia Capital is a boutique wine equipment and barrel rental service, based in Tatachilla at the heart of the McLaren Vale wine region. Founded by investors with a history in the agricultural industry, we’ve spent the last 10 years helping wineries procure and finance equipment they need to operate and grow.

The Sarnia Capital Story
Sarnia Capital was established 10 years ago to meet the needs of small to medium wineries recovering from the global financial crisis. With the one-size-fits-all nature of traditional lenders making it harder to procure the right equipment, we wanted to create an option that made it easy for winemakers to use equipment that best served their process.
This led us to create Sarnia Capital – a very different service to financing from a bank. Something that instead would give winemakers a personalised solution, procure the barrels or equipment for them, and that was setup to suit their cash flow. By working with our clients face-to-face, managing logistics, and being fully funded through private investment, we have the resources and freedom to give clients exactly what they’re looking for.
Over the past 10 years, we are proud to have helped over 70 wineries and many other small businesses get the equipment they needed to operate and grow. We see ourselves as champions of small business, and will be helping many wineries for the years to come.
