Our Region

Named after an Aboriginal word meaning 'honeysuckle', Coonawarra is an isolated region renowned for its geological and climatic features which create fruit of the highest quality.

Terra Rossa 'red earth'

Situated 450km from Melbourne, Victoria and 380km from Adelaide, South Australia, Coonawarra's fame hails from a natural soil phenomenon called the terra rossa, a low, cigar-shaped ridge of soil stretching 20 kilometres long and up to two kilometres wide.

Meaning 'red earth', terra rossa topsoil is rich and free draining but it is also thin; five centimetres to 100 centimetres deep. It is one of the best soils in Australia for growing vines, and ideal for creating small, well-coloured berries which develop in optimal sunlight. The result is intensely-flavoured grapes perfect for premium wines.


Like many of the world’s great wine regions, Coonawarra's climate is cool and marginal. It is South Australia's southernmost wine region, positioned 80 kilometres from the Southern Ocean and cold Antarctic winds.

The vines of Coonawarra are assured a long, cool ripening period which builds the intensity of flavours slowly in the grape, creating a balanced acidity. The resulting wines are among Australia's finest for their richness, intensity, flavour and longevity.
