Katnook Estate lies at the heart of Coonawarra, premier district for Australian red wines. ‘Katnook’ is an Aboriginal word meaning “fat land” referring to Coonawarra’s red, fertile soil. The Katnook Founder’s Block wines are named after the original land holding of John Riddoch, founder of Coonawarra. Wayne Stehbens, Senior Winemaker at the estate, has been at the helm of the winery since 1979 and boasts an extraordinary track record of trophies and awards. His wines represent remarkable value for those looking for a wine with the stamp of Coonawarra. His goal: “making wines which show subtlety, intrigue and complexity. Reflecting the essence of Coonawarra’s terroir is integral to my winemaking approach.”
