WAHGUNYAH | Cofield Wines is boutique, family owned and operated winery that’s been operating since it was founded by Max Cofield in 1985. The Cofield family, however, have been making wines in Rutherglen since 1909. Max’s son, and current owner, Damien Cofield received a Wine Science degree at Charles Sturt University in 1999, and spent time in Chablis learning more before returning to take over the winery from his dad.
Cofield use their own grapes, as well as grapes from the King Valley, Alpine Valley & Beechworth to create a variety of wines that showcase the best that the North-East of Victoria has to offer. Specialising in Sparkling wines, made using the Methode Traditionelle process, Cofield also offer a wide variety of regional whites, Rutherglen reds, sweet and dessert wines and fortified wine. The NV Sweet Ava and Footsteps Sparkling Shiraz are particular favourites of ours.
Damien Cofield gives wine tours along with a discussion about how Cofield make their sparkling wines every Thursday at 2pm year round – bookings are required.
