We've got Coonawarra@Heart

Since early 2021 five wineries in the 'heart' of the Coonawarra strip have been working together to build a wine trail for visitors - with incentives to match.

Collect a Coonawarra@Heart card from any of the participating wineries
  • Balnaves of Coonawarra
  • Bowen Estate
  • Katnook Estate
  • Leconfield Coonawarra
  • Majella Coonawarra
and have it stamped at each. Once completed, cards can be left at any of the wineries and will go into a draw to win a mixed six bottle pack of Coonawarra wine, drawn monthly. Remember to pick up your card on your next visit to us!
