Coates Wines

The winemaking philosophy of Coates Wines is not predicated on fashion or blind adherence to dogma, the processes we use (and avoid) have grown from experience and understanding. Duanes training is as a winemaker (with a Masters Degree from the University of Adelaide), backed by Australian and International experience. Making wines from the large scale commercial end down to small batch boutique provides a pragmatic perspective on the wine world. Coates Wines are made in a way that is hoped will provide sensory delights truest to region and variety. Those who make their wines with a different philosophy to our own make different wines to our own. Experimentation and diversity is welcomed in the vinous landscape.
