DiGiorgio Coonawarra Shiraz

In March 2002 the DiGiorgio Family became the proud owners of the second oldest winery in Coonawarra. This winery had been known since the early 1950’s as ‘Rouge Homme’ and holds enormous importance within the ‘winescape’ of Australia. The 13.5ha of mature vineyard surrounding the winery is planted on the famous ‘terra rossa’ soil of Coonawarra. These old vineyards have provided the DiGiorgio Family with an invaluable source of premium grapes for their Coonawarra label.
