Balnaves of Coonawarra

South Australia | Coonawarra

Our Review

Grapegrower, viticultural consultant and vigneron, Doug Balnaves has over 70ha of high-quality estate vineyards. The wines are invariably excellent, often outstanding; notable for their supple mouthfeel, varietal integrity, balance and length – the tannins are always fine and ripe, the oak subtle and perfectly integrated. Coonawarra at its best. Exports to the UK, the US, Canada, Indonesia, South Korea and China.


Established in 1975, the Balnaves of Coonawarra winery is situated in the heart of Coonawarra and planted on the traditional terra rossa strip. The family remain passionate about Coonawarra and the expression of the region and their own vineyards unique elements through their wines.
