It was only ever supposed to be temporary. John and Melissa moved to the iconic Coonawarra region thirty years ago intending to, in John’s words, “stay a little while”.

They bought a parcel of land ringed by tall Red Gum Eucalypts, and with natural wetlands dotted with Ottelia Ovalifolia, a native water lily. In 1993 they planted 2 Ha of Cabernet Sauvignon and over the next 3 years expanded the vineyard to 9 Ha. All these years later John and Melissa are still there.

After almost twenty years of experience working within the Coonawarra region, John and Melissa turned their energy towards their own projects; the restaurant Fodder and the wine label Ottelia.

Did you know?

Coonawarra is one of six registered wine regions within the Limestone Coast Wine Zone, accounting for approximately 8% of Australia’s wine grape production.

This is one place I can highly recommend for lunch in the vines of Coonawarra. Ambience, warm in winter, wood fired pizza, good service and wonderful Ottelia red wine - what more could anyone want in the premier red wine region of Australia. 5 stars all round!!
