Welcome to Majella Wines, one of the most awarded small Australian wineries.
They are a family owned winery based in the famous Coonawarra wine region in South Australia, home to some of Australia’s greatest wines.
The Lynn family have been residents of the Penola – Coonawarra district for five generations, starting off as blacksmiths, wheelwrights, storekeepers and finally, graziers.
In 1968 Brian and Anthony Lynn started planting a vineyard on the Coonawarra property that their parents had purchased back in 1960. At that stage the property was used for prime lamb production, but a decision was made to convert a lovely “terra rossa” bank on the front of the farm into vineyards.
Eventually the size of the vineyards grew to 60 hectares.
The remainder of the land is still used for sheep grazing, mostly for prime lamb production with the rest purely for wool.
