One of the wineries in the area is Bellwether Wines located at the historic Glen Roy Woolshed that was originally constructed in 1857.

She uses the more traditional winemaking techniques such. as hand picking, hand pruning, basket pressing, indigenous yeast and french oak. These methods lead to the production of the unique premium wines from Bellwether Wines. In essence, Bellwether Wines display purity, depth, complexity, concentration, persistence, length and texture.

Bellwether Wines, SA  14183 Riddoch Highway, Coonawarra
Sue Bell created Bellwether, based at the 1868 Glen Roy Shearing Shed in Coonawarra. She focuses on special parcels of fruit with no ferment larger than 1 tone primarily for herself and some contract work for local growers wanting to start their own brands. Sue believes wine alone is irresponsible and a bit strange, so has established a place to share life with wine in it. People are literally invited to see and get involved in the process.

Ottelia, SA  5 Memorial Drive, Coonawarra SA 5263 Australia
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. Introducing Drink Ottelia + Eat Fodder, walk in and taste the growing portfolio of wine alongside wood fired sourdough pizzas and seasonal dishes made with fresh veggies from the Fodder | Ottelia garden.
