What we’re about
IN COONAWARRA SINCE 1906
In 1906, my great-grandfather Henry Albert and his wife Alice Jane Reschke bought a property to raise cattle. They named it ‘Koonara’, after the new name for the area. At the time, the region was known as the ‘Penola Fruit Blocks’ or‘ Penola Fruit Colony’, but many were keen to make the new name ‘Coonawarra’ stick.
Since 1988, our vineyards and wine have been our passion, and today, Nicole and the girls live in the family homestead surrounded by our vineyards. For this reason (and many others), we are creating a sustainable eco-system in our vineyards.
