In 1906, my great grandfather Henry Albert and his wife Alice Jane Reschke bought a property to raise cattle. They named it ‘Koonara’, after the new name for the area. At the time the region was know as the ‘Penola Fruit Blocks’, or ‘Penola Fruit Colony’, but many were keen to make the new name ‘Coonawarra’ stick.
Today myself, Nicole and the girls live in the family homestead surrounded by our vineyards.
It is for this reason (and many others) we are creating a sustainable eco-system in our vineyards, using only organic products in the vineyards.
