Banks Thargo Wines, located on the eastern side of Coonawarra, was established in 1990. The vineyard, which surrounds the picturesque Penola Racecourse, has plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay.
One of the smallest wine producers in Coonawarra, Banks Thargo Wines is entirely family owned and currently operated by Jon and Heather Kidman.
The aim of Banks Thargo Coonawarra is to consistently produce quality wines with strong varietal flavours and intense colours.
This is achieved by keeping cropping levels low by hand pruning and of course a little help with Coonawarra’s cool climate and famous Terra Rossa soil.
