Wynns Coonawarra Estate: producer profile

The winery that put Coonawarra on the map for wine drinkers in the 1950s has grown to become one of Australia’s best-known names. Huon Hooke charts its history and the Decanter team tastes some older vintage and new releases, including the 2019 Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon and 2021 Chardonnay.

Wynns Coonawarra Estate is the undisputed grandaddy of Coonawarra. The winery is the oldest and longest-continuing producer of wine here, owning the cream of the region’s vineyards. Its fame is second to none.

So is the quality of its wines, which under senior winemaker Sue Hodder, has never been better. No wonder Wynns is one of the jewels in the crown of its owner, Treasury Wine Estates, topped only by Penfolds.
