The Balnaves Family

The Balnaves family have been associated with the district since 1855 with the first wines under the Balnaves of Coonawarra label being produced in 1990. We remain fully committed to a high level of 'hands-on' involvement and look forward to sharing our passion with you.

For the seventeenth year in a row, the prestigious publication, the James Halliday Wine Companion 2018 has rated Balnaves as a 5-Star winery!
