Koppamurra - our wines


Source of all the joy and without which the sprawling empire of Koppamurra Wines would not exist. But…as many of you will know, none of them owned by us. Which in fact gives us a lot more choice and flexibility in the winemaking.

Back in the day – half a century or so ago –when we did own a vineyard, our wines were limited to the grapes we grew; we’d make a lot of a few varietals and sell (we hoped) the surplus grapes.

These days we don’t own a vineyard, but buy grapes from selected vineyards in some very high-quality wine regions – vineyards that we have built a relation with over the years.

Riesling from Watervale in the Clare Valley – recognised as the Riesling district in Australia;
Grenache from old vines in McLaren Vale – the once rubbish grape now a wine lovers delight;
Pinot Gris from the Adelaide Hills;
Cabernet Sauvignon from Coonawarra – where the red dirt over limestone maintains the Bordeaux tradition for Cab Sauv terroir; and
Australia’s own ubiquitous Shiraz – McLaren Vale, Padthaway

Those are not all, but enough to show that our grape-sourcing gives us great variety and flexibility which we trust you also enjoy.

2023 wine events

To all our friends and fans out there, but specially in Sydney and Melbourne.  Finally, we have caught up again after those years in the Covid wilderness.  It was good to see you at the old drinking grounds* of the Pyrmont Bridge Hotel and The Mercure, Albert Park. You all seemed quite pleased to see us which is always encouraging.  [*sorry, that should be ‘the old responsible sampling of quality wine grounds’] Two events already this year – Sydney and Melbourne in March.

Contact us to order yours!

Yes, we have two! The one in the news letter is 'static' and you print it and use a pen to fill it in! 
The one on the 'download link' is 'active' meaning you can open it and then type in your choices and details. The contents of both copies are the same!  
(Clever Huh! and easier for those of us who can never find a pen!)

Great news - great new wines!
