Hi <<First Name>>,

What a wonderful month we've had.

We were proud to partner with Mums Who Wine for their sold-out event in Ballarat. It was a wonderful night of self-care and of course, great wine! A huge thank you to Lauren and Jacqui from Mums Who Wine who chose Koonara Wines as their event partner. 

We've also enjoyed a delicious range of vegan treats last month from just frank to celebrate Coonawarra Cabernet month. 

And what an honour it was to be nominated for Landcare Australia's Innovation in Land Management Award for our work reducing chemicals by enticing hunter bugs to the vineyard through flowers. 

In event news, tickets are now SOLD OUT for our Platinum Marquee at the Dunkeld Cup. Limited tickets remain for the Mount Gambier Gold Cup on Friday, December 6. Be quick!

Does organic wine last longer? 

It all comes down to preservatives.

Check out our short video we made - where I explain more about why I think organic wines should last longer. 

Our pick of the month: Angel’s Peak, Coonawarra Shiraz 2016


The name ‘Angels Peak’ is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the lack of ‘peaks’ in the very flat Coonawarra.

No residual sugar, below organic levels of sulphur, 18 month in 100% French Oak Barrels (20% new). This wine has seamless mint dark chocolate and coffee notes, over silky mulberries and molasses.

Lift this bottle to the light and try to see through the neck. The density of colour shows the quality of the grapes that went into this wine. Since flavour and deep colour in Shiraz comes from the skin, we grow our grapes smaller, about the size of a pea.

Our 2016 vintage was awarded:

  • 5 star and equal top in category, Winestate Magazine 2018
  • Double Gold – 13th G100 International Wine and Spirits Awards 2019
