The Zema family is proud of the traditional techniques they employ in their vineyard; dry land viticulture and hand pruning are two such practices, which help to produce intense, rich fruit of the highest quality.

This is the winery that I gladly recommend to friends when they ask for the name of a great winery from this wine area. They make wine that is continually top shelf vintage after vintage. Bravo

When compared with the bigger neighbors, this is a small winery but makes good wines and has good and friendly service. This winery is a must to visit if when traveling the Coonawarra region. Bought some nice reds there.

When measured against their giant neighbours, this is a small, quaint little place that delivers good wine and good, friendly service.

Smooth tasting wines using their own local vinyards. This winery is a must to visit if you are visiting the Coonawarra.

Grand entrance, lovely vineyard with original owner at 84yo still pruning own vines. Host was very helpful but not the bubbly personality like previous two. Maybe it had been a long day for her. Didn't appear to be as knowledgeable as others but was still friendly and helpful. Only bought one bottle from this place unfortunately.

The folk at Zema are absolutely lovely. Unfortunately, the wines available for tasting didn't quite measure up, at least for my palette. Their top shelf wine may have but, unfortunately, it isn't available for tasting and, frankly, I don't understand this. For me, there is one reason to visit Coonawarra and that is to taste wines and broaden knowledge of... More
