Hi <<First Name>>,

What an incredible couple of months we've had. 

Ruby Awards
In November, Nicole and I were lucky enough to be sponsors of the Ruby Awards, honouring the best of the state's arts and cultural sector. A great night honouring many, including Storm Boy/The Tracker actor David Gulpilli. More photos of the night here. 

Mt Gambier Gold Cup
Thanks to everyone who joined us in our Platinum Marquee at the Mt Gambier Gold Cup earlier this month - what a day, what a party! You can check out all the images from the event on our website.

We would love to see you in Coonawarra this festive season - we are open every day except Christmas + Boxing Day from Monday to Thursday: 10am-5pm, Friday and Saturday 10am-6pm and Sunday and public holidays: 10am-4pm.

Wishing you and your family a happy festive season and safe new year.

Merry Christmas! 
Dru and Nicole Reschke

Farmers adding organic material into their soil will take the equivalent of 200 million cars off the road. And that’s just the beginning… read more on the blog.

Feature Artist
Teskey Brothers - Run Home Slow

These homegrown heroes took out Best Band and best Best Blues & Roots album and well deserved too. Missing out on best album, this album is well worth a listen regardless of music taste. Josh Teskey's voice is like gravelled gold, giving this album a 60's soul feel, worthy of the best Otis Redding has in his back catalogue. 

Feature Wine
Bannockburn Chardonnay 2018

This wine is so off the charts awesome it reminds me why this industry is so amazing. Age-worthy and incredibly complex, anyone who loves chardonnay should try this wine at least once in their life to show you the complexity this variety can unveil. Winemaker Matt Holmes has taken this wine to the next level.
