Zema Estate is a small family winery located in the heart of the Coonawarra wine region. 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. The Cellar Door is open seven days from 9am to 5pm and the winery welcomes visitors.

Nice place to stop for a taste.

Nice little winery, friendly knowledgeable staff. Nice cellar door with vines along the drive and carpark. Lonely tasting wines, couldn't help but buy a few.

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

We've loved Zema for a long time, a great selection of quality current releases and back vintages. Lovely setting and Glenda is a darlin'.

Big wines made for cellaring. My favourite of all at Coonawarra, well I say that everywhere, but I do have a big soft spot for Zema. They have a very good selection of museum wines for sale here. I think our car was filled with the purple label. We had a 2003 Cabernet the other night. Pure bliss. great Cabernets... More

Some of the best, often underrated and value for money reds. Don't miss Zema on your Coonawarra trip. Enjoy.

We spend a couple of days wine tasting. The person on the service desk was polite but did not have the passion for her wine that the others serving did. A lot of people came and bought the wine but she seemed to be just there pouring the wine not really being passionate about it.
