Our family has been in Coonawarra since 1906,

so I guess that means we are almost locals …

Koonara Wines was established in 1992 by Dru Reschke

on vineyards he planted with his father, Trevor, in the late 1980s. Dru with his wife Nicole, who lives on the property with their daughters Lucy and Alice.

We are the only Certified Organic vineyard in Coonawarra

and have been since 2017.

Our red vines are grown on famous terra rossa soil in Coonawarra

our whites and Pinot Noir are grown down the road in Mt Gambier – the coolest region in mainland Australia.

We believe in creating wines that are high quality and age-worthy.

All of our wines are vegan-friendly, low in sulphur and have Low to no residual sugar.

What they are saying

wine is second to none.

I drink the Guardian Angel sparkling wine. I have to say this particular wine is second to none. I am extremely hard to please when it comes to wine, this one ticks all the boxes, the only problem is trying to hide it from my family, neighbours,  and friends. Well done Koonara

“One thing I wouldn’t have expected in a country town … was a funky homewares shop … it pays not to get too smug about living in one of the world’s biggest cities, particularly when the shopping in a small country town is superior.”

“Part cellar door, part one-stop shop, Koonara encourages you to taste its organic wines as you browse the homewares, gifts, jewellery, clothing and gourmet treats. The concept is “everything you need for a good dinner party”, such as Savor glassware designed by the winery’s director Dru Reschke.”
