Support Coonawarra’s Independent Winemakers With Coonawarra Vignerons

* The City Lane was gifted a mixed pack of wines from Coonawarra Vignerons

ADELAIDE | Coonawarra is one of Australia’s top wine regions. It’s winemakers produce a diverse range of varieties and styles, ranging from crisp to complex whites and medium-bodied to robust reds. The region is particularly known for its world class red wines, especially Cabernet Sauvignon.

The cigar-shaped strip of ‘terra rossa’ is finite, only 12km long and 2km wide, and is all but taken up by vineyards. More than 24 Coonawarra wineries have cellar door sales outlets, mostly open seven days a week, but until recently, you haven’t been able to purchase their wines direct online.

Many of the region’s wineries are small, family run operations, that have been hard hit by the 2020 double punch of bushfires and COVID-19 lockdowns. A grant that was recently made available to these wine producers, collectively working together as “Coonawarra Vignerons” which has enabled them to sell their wines Australia-wide, direct to the public online.

Along with the core wines that these wineries produce, the Coonawarra Vignerons site offers exclusive cases which are available only at the site, representing the best of the region. You can find the online store here.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
