Koonara Wines is a boutique winery based in the heart of Coonawarra.
Koonara of Coonawarra is owned by Dru and Nicole Reschke.
The Reschke family have been in Coonawarra for three generations and the brand Koonara is named after the original family cattle property, renowned throughout Australia for producing some of the finest Hereford cattle.
Today the property is home to the two Koonara flagship vineyards, producing two distinctive wines, Ambriel’s Gift Cabernet Sauvignon and Ezra’s Gift Shiraz.
The vineyards have been organic in conversion for the past five years, supporting a natural ecosystem meaning the vineyard is creating its own biological habitat without being altered by artificial influences.
The Koonara vineyards are low yielding with only 1.5 tonnes of grapes per acre, so the winemaker is able to craft a wine that is intensely flavoured.
The Koonara Cellar door is situated on the main street of Penola with a collection of wines for the most discerning palate, from the flagship Cabernet and Shiraz to sparkling to Pinot, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Moscato.
Koonara Wines cellar door is unique to the region, it is home to Alice and Lucy jewellery and LARDER homeware. There is something for everyone in the Koonara Cellar Door.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
