We want to make
Boutique Coonawarra Winery and Organic Vineyard
A Family Owned Organic Vineyard and Winery in Coonawarra.
Making great wine – that has been produced sustainably – is our passion. We’re the first Certified Organic vineyard in Coonawarra and our wines are low in sulphur, have no/low residual sugar and are made vegan friendly. Our wines are consistently great each year, and are made to the highest quality. We hope you enjoy them – Dru, Nicole (with Lucy and Alice).
Over 100 Years in Coonawarra
The quality of your barrels and winemakers. We believe quality is paramount in creating a wine which is not only good, but consistent and age worthy.
Our red wines are aged in French Oak. All of our reds are aged in 100% fine-grain French Oak Hogsheads barrels. Some cheaper wines are produced with oak substitutes such as chips, planks and dominos.
Low yields, small grapes and big flavour. Both our Coonawarra vineyards yield 2 tonnes of fruit or less – the average for Coonawarra is 3.5 – 4 tonnes. We grow small grapes, which are about the size of a pea. This allows us to get more skin per litre of juice. Because the colour and flavour in wine comes from the grapes skin, we can get big colour and flavour in our wines.
Great winemaking team. Peter Douglas the former Wynns winemaker is our winemaker, and one of the most respected winemakers and wine judges in Australia. Both Peter, Dru and Nicole take a collaborative approach to producing award winning wines each year. If you’re looking to visit Coonawarra Wineries, Koonara Wines should be on your list!
In 2017 our Coonawarra vineyards were certified to Australian Organic standards, and no pesticides have been used on the property for over 10 years.
