Coonawarra

Coonawarra - Limestone Coast - South Australia

Jump on the bandwagon, with wine glass in hand and trail around Coonawarra, the Limestone Coast's main wine region. As a producer of world-class shiraz and cabernet sauvignon this celebrated region is often referred to as Australia's 'other red centre'. Admire the rose garden at Balnaves of Coonawarra and savour some taste testing at its award winning cellar door and the Coonawarra Wine Gallery offering Jamieson's Run, Mildara and Lindeman's Coonawarra, complimented by cheese. Accomplished chefs serve up some seriously good food at the restaurant of Hollick Wines' cellar door and visitors can observe winemakers going about their craft at Leconfield Wines.

Coonawarra is overflowing with more than 24 cellar doors in a compact region that is a modest 20 kilometres long and two kilometres wide. So get on your bike, soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the ride. Cellar doors are well signposted and you won't have to go far before reach your next drinking den.

Fortunately David Wynn purchased the wine estate, now known as Wynns Coonawarra, saving it from being sold to the Department of Forstry and Lands. Thankfully he recognised the region's distinct climate married with the celebrated terra rossa (red earth) as a winning combination.
