About Us

About Koerner Wine

We 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.

OUR 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.

WINEMAKING STYLE

Ultimately we aim to produce wines to a style that we enjoy drinking. Generally these wines are light, fresh, textured and well structured with high drinkability. To achieve this we pick early and use a minimal intervention winemaking style.

Our reds are bright, vibrant and can be enjoyed young with a great balance between primary fruit, acidity and phenolics.

Our whites are aromatic, expressing primary fruit while showing mouthfeel, structure and texture.

OUR OTHER WINE BRANDS

In addition to Koerner Wine, we also have two other wine labels- LEKO Wine and Brothers Koerner. LEKO is our Adelaide Hills sister brand and to date we have focussed on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Brothers is our dual region brand, with our portfolio of wines coming from both the Clare Valley and the Adelaide Hills.
