Coonawarra’s first certified organic vineyards

100% Family owned | All wines 100% vegan | Low sulphur wines

We want to make
a difference.

Located in Coonawarra, South Australia, Koonara Wines was established in 1992 by Dru Reschke on vineyards he planted with his father Trevor in the late 1980s. Dru continues his passion for wine with his wife Nicole, who lives on the property with their daughters Lucy and Alice. Our Coonawarra vineyards are organically grown and certified and have been since 2017. Koonara believes in creating wines that are high quality and age-worthy. All our wines are vegan friendly, low in sulphur and have no (or low) residual sugar.

Organic Viticulture

We are the only Certified Organic vineyard in Coonawarra.

None of the bad stuff

Low levels of sulphur in all our wines, no oak substitutes and no/low residual sugar* in our wines.

Great Dirt

Our red vines are grown on famous terra rossa soil in Coonawarra, and our whites and Pinot Noir are grown down the road in Mt Gambier – the coolest region in mainland Australia.
