Coonawarra

One of Australia’s most famous fine wine regions, Coonawarra forged its name on the back of its terra rossa soil and its age-worthy cabernet sauvignon, but there is much more to Coonawarra if you scratch below the surface.

As you turn off the Riddoch Highway into Memorial Drive, do yourself a favour. Drive straight past Wynns Coonawarra Estate towards the Coonawarra railway siding. It’s one of the most photographed scenes in the Australian wine biz. Now you are grounded. It’s time to head to the Wynns Coonawarra Estate cellar door.

There’s a sense of anticipation as you walk up the pathway towards the famous gables at the cellar door entrance. It’s a warm and inviting atmosphere with a spacious feel, fascinating historical displays and friendly, knowledgeable staff on hand to guide you through the Wynns wines.

The ‘Make Your Own Blend’ session is for those who fancy improving their winemaking skills, with the opportunity to blend together a wine from cabernet, shiraz and merlot, and take home a bottle of your creation to enjoy with friends.

Wynns Coonawarra Estate is one of the industry greats, the wines are magnificent and its cellar door is a gem of the Coonawarra. DAVID BROOKES
