KOOYONGA CREEK WINERY is located in the foothills of the Alpine Ranges of North East Victoria. The winery is 20 acres planted with equal areas of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. First plantings were in 2000. The mild climate extends the ripening period and adds to the complexity and intensity of flavour in the grapes.
KOOYONGA CREEK is a small winery owned and operated by the Saunders family. Several generations ago, prospectors searched for gemstones hidden in the creeks on what is now the Kooyonga farm. When the Saunders family settled on the property, they discovered another gem in the form of some very special soil.
'From this earth come the wines of Kooyonga Creek. Inspired by the mild climate and long growing season, we allow our wines the time needed to develop intensity and complexity.’
