Majella Wines, located in the centre of Coonawarra’s red strip is one of Australia’s most awarded small wineries, boasting a red 5 star rating with James Halliday- Australian Wine Companion.
Owned and operated by the Lynn family who have resided in Penola – Coonawarra district for five generations, starting off as blacksmiths, wheelwrights, storekeepers and graziers.
In 1968 Brian (Prof) & Anthony Lynn started planting a vineyard on the Coonawarra property. At that stage the property was used for prime lamb production, but a decision was made to convert a lovely “terra rossa” bank on the front of the farm into vineyards. Eventually the size of the vineyards grew to 60 hectares consisting of the Shiraz planted in 1968, Cabernet Sauvignon planted in 1970, followed by Merlot and Riesling.
Majella continued efforts to become eco-friendly, with a large solar power expansion and collection of rain water to limit our water usage. Our wines are also vegan friendly.
The wine making team at Majella of Bruce Gregory, since 1991, the year of our first official release, with Michael Marcus joining the team in 2008, and with him a new wealth of experience to make one of the best wine-making teams around.
