Region Clare Valley, Australia

Winemaker Damon & Jono Koerner

The brothers Jono & Damon grew up in the Clare Valley but have since spent time working and studying around Australia and overseas. Our wines are produced from fruit grown within a 500m radius of the Watervale area in the Clare Valley, with the majority coming from our family vineyard, Gullyview. Gullyview vineyard has been owned and managed by our parents, Christine & Anthony Koerner, for over 40 years.

Philosophy: Our winemaking philosophy is simple – to make wines that reflect their place in the world, wines that are made in the vineyard. We believe the date of picking is the most crucial part of the process. Once the grapes make their way to the winery, they are carefully nurtured with each batch treated individually. An understanding of terroir and the individual varieties enables us to produce unique wines using nothing but the grapes and a small amount of sulphur. We are currently implementing organic practices within our vineyards.
