“One of the smallest and best (in Coonawarra) is Koonara … real highlight and a must to check out.”

“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.”
Peter Bourne and Sandra Bridekirk - Qantas Travel Insider Magazine
“Part cellar door, part one-stop shop, Koonara encourages you to taste its organic wines as you browse the homewares, gifts, ewellery, clothing and gourmet treats. The concept is “everything you need for a good dinner party”, such as Rouge Vintner glassware designed by the winery’s director Dru Reschke.”
