Zema Estate is a small family winery located in the heart of the Coonawarra wine region. The Zema family is proud of the traditional techniques they employ in their vineyard; dry land viticulture and hand pruning are two such practices, which help to produce intense, rich fruit of the highest quality. The Cellar Door is open seven days from 9am to 5pm and the winery welcomes visitors.

Popped in for Coonawarra by night and had Mrs Zema's famous puzza and bought a bottle of their Shiraz. It was excellent - their Clooneys and CabShiraz's are outstanding. We love their chilli paste as well. Dont miss this one anytime you are here.

Zema Estate is a long standing winery in the Coonawarra. A Cellar Door tasting will rewards you with great Cabernets and some nice Shiraz. Well worth the visit

Visited here the other week after a couple of days in Penola. We were the only ones there so got great service from the lady behind the counter who was lovely to chat too. Fantastic reds and value for money. Definitely one to revisit

Unlike some wineries in the Coonawarra, Zema provides great wines at very good value. Service is unpretentious and welcoming. It punches well above its weight in comparison to its big name neighbours. Also pop into Bellwether Wines for a unique tasting experience with wines from...More

6 of us headed off to the tasting tables on offer in the Coonawarra and Zema was one of 6 we chose to try. The reds are very good and well worth the trip.
