In 1951, the Wynn family purchased the iconic winery and vineyard, convinced of the region’s potential to produce top-quality wines. Melbourne designer Richard Beck’s now iconic woodcut illustration of the winery façade adorns the first wine released under the Wynns Coonawarra Estate label in 1952. Over the past 18 years, the Wynns Coonawarra Estate vineyards have been meticulously rejuvenated resulting in wines of greater refinement to capture the true essence of Coonawarra – varietal character with finesse.
Today Wynns Coonawarra Estate is Coonawarra’s pre-eminent wine producer and largest single vineyard holder, with the longest-established vineyards in the region. Under the guidance of Sue Hodder (Senior Winemaker since 1998) and Allen Jenkins (Wynns Viticulturist) Wynns wines are regarded as benchmarks for the district, lauded for their consistent quality and depth of flavour.
In vintages when the grapes are deemed exceptional, two flagship reds are made: the John Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon, and the Michael Shiraz. A range of single vineyard wines is further evidence of Wynns’ depth; a heralded vineyard is selected and the wine named in its honour.
