The Coonawarra Wineries Walking Trail is just under 5 kilometres in length. If you allow 20 minutes at each winery, the trail should take approximately 3 hours to complete. You may wish to factor in more time and allow for a lunch stop at Fodder or a pre-ordered picnic basket from the Coonawarra Store to enjoy at one of the wineries.
You are free to begin the trail from any location, as parking is available at all five wineries on the trail. You may also prefer to begin your walk from the heart of Coonawarra and start at the park, where parking is also available.
Coonawarra has long been recognised as one of Australia’s premium wine producing regions. It is renowned for producing world class red wines, in particular Cabernet Sauvignon with intense fruit character and balance. The secret lies in the magical marriage of rich terra rossa soil over lacustrine limestone, a pure underground water supply and a long, cool ripening period for the grapes.
The cigar shaped strip of terra rossa is finite, and for this reason it is prized like a precious jewel. The strip is only 20 kilometres long and 2 kilometres at its widest point and is all but taken up by vineyards. The five wineries on the trail are all open seven days a week (except some public holidays) and the eateries as advertised. You will be warmly welcomed at all of them for tastings or refreshments.
