• Coonawarra

    Warm summers, cold, wet winters and a long ripening season and you’ve got perfect grape growing conditions. Famous for the 'terra rossa' soils, the Coonawarra provides the ideal environment for producing world class wines.
  • Jimmy Watson

    The Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy is the most prestigious and sought after wine award in Australia. The trophy is a memorial to the late Jimmy Watson who established the iconic Jimmy Watson's Wine Bar in Lygon Street, Carlton, a suburb of Melbourne. The trophy is awarded annually at the Royal Melbourne Wine Show to the producer of the best one or two year old, dry, red wine.
  • Coonawarra

    Home to more than 20 cellar doors, it gets rave reviews from wine writers. Respected writer and wine judge Len Evans once described it as "the Bordeaux of Australia." Coonawarra has won more Jimmy Watson trophies for Australia's best one-year-old red wine than any other wine district – since 1977 the tally is a very impressive 12 wins.
  • Cape Jaffa

    Don’t ignore the whites though. You’ll find quality whites around the region. The Sauvignon Blancs from the cooler coastal wineries have a very good reputation.
  • Robe

    Forged over 26 million years by the primal forces of the ocean and the movement of tectonic plates, the Limestone Coast has been perfectly sculpted into a natural playground. The result? Picturesque port towns such as Kingston SE, Robe and Beachport, where watersports are the order of the day.
