Our aim is 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.See Balnaves of Coonawarra and all Coonawarra has to offer by arranging your trip with our Coonawarra trip itinerary planning site.
Our winemaking philosophy is to maximize and build complexity and structure in all the wines. Rather than focus on simple varietal fruit characters, the wines show complex fruit oak and tannin aromas, and rich yet fine palate structures, with noticeable texture as well as flavour on the finish.
Our wines are made to be aged and are best after several years of cellaring. The wines are made to accompany food and are best enjoyed with food, which highlights the mouthfeel qualities which our wines produce.

Popped into Balnaves on a recommendation from a cafe in Penola. Such a beautiful setting and thoroughly recommend! Really lovely service and delicious wine.
Best service from the amazing Heidi, walked my partner and I through a very educational though fun tasting of about 9 different wines and was more than happy for us to spend a lot of time finely picking out our favourites to purchase and take back to Adelaide. Served us with a very generous cheese and fruit platter that my partner couldn't get enough of. The wine, the food, the space, the service was amazing and couldn't fault it. We'll definitely be back.
