The Head Honcho was created from our 10 acre single Cabernet vineyard. This vineyard produces small berries full of intense flavour, harvesting a tiny 1 tonne per acre.
In the 2015 vintage, it had only organic additives, and no pesticides (none have been used in this vineyard for 10 years).
We aged this wine for 24 months in the finest French Oak barrels. Only 3 barrels were chosen as good enough – creating only 100 cases. The Head Honcho will age well until 2030.
- Vegan friendly
- Organically Grown
- No residual sugar

We’re practicing organic viticulture in our vineyards. We average four
sprays per year for disease with only organically certified product so
as not to harm our delicate ecosystem. No pesticides have been used
in our Coonawarra vineyards for 10 years.
No oak substitutes (no chips, planks, dominos, etc) are used to make
our wines. It means our wines won’t be the cheapest, but aged in
100% oak barrels means the highest quality.
French Oak barrels. All of our reds are aged in 100% fine-grain French
Oak Hogsheads barrels. These are the most expensive barrels, costing
upwards of $1,800 a barrel, but the flavours are far superior.
No residual sugar in any of our reds and whites. They still taste sweet,
showing perfect balance in the vineyard.
**The exception to this is in our moscato, and just a touch in our sparkling red.
Low yields, small grapes and big flavour. Both our Coonawarra vineyards yield 2 tonnes or less
– the average for Coonawarra is 3.5 – 4 tonnes. However this doesn’t mean we have less grapes.
Koonara grapes are smaller, which means more skin per litre. The colour and flavour comes
from the skin, this results in more colour and flavour; the vine can perfectly ripen smaller, thick-
skinned grapes (the size of a pea – see picture).
Former Wynns winemaker for 15 years Peter Douglas is our winemaker, one of the most
respected winemakers and wine judges in Australia.
Famous Coonawarra terra rossa soil. All our Coonawarra vines are planted on the famous terra
rossa soil, situated on our property which has been in the family for over 100 years.
