Parker Coonawarra Estate is committed to building upon John Parker’s original ethos by crafting the most exciting super-premium wines from the Coonawarra region. We believe our little spot in Southern Coonawarra is home to some of the highest quality vine selections in the world, and we are dedicated to making the best possible wines – from these vines – without compromise.
John and Faye Parker established Parker Coonawarra Estate in 1985 after a career-long interest in the region. Today, the privately-owned Parker Coonawarra Estate is committed to John Parker’s standards of excellence, and producing the most faithful expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from the celebrated Terra Rossa soils of the Coonawarra growing region.
Our estate ‘Abbey’ vineyard is located on the highly regarded southern end of Coonawarra’s famed ‘cigar strip’ of terra rossa soil. The 20Ha vineyard is Cabernet Sauvignon predominant, with small pockets of Merlot and Petit Verdot. The Cabernet Sauvignon is planted to Reynella vine selection; original cuttings from Bordeaux, sourced before Phylloxera decimated the vineyards throughout France in the late 1800’s.
For over a quarter of a century, Parker Estate has achieved numerous wine show medals, trophies, and accolades, including a Five Star rating by James Halliday, Langton’s Classification V for Excellence, and many high rating reviews by major wine media both within Australia and internationally.
