Balnaves of Coonawarra Vineyard was established in 1974, and is situated at the southern end of the Coonawarra Terra Rossa strip. 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.
We aim to produce consistently high quality wines from fruit sourced from our own Coonawarra vineyards, reflecting the unique flavours, character and quality of fruit grown in this area, as well as the variation of seasons in this cool climate area.
Balnaves of Coonawarra is a tight family unit consisting of Doug & Annette Balnaves working with their daughter Kirsty and son Pete, alongside winemaker of 20 years at Balnaves of Coonawarra Pete Bissell.
