We are brothers, Damon and Jono Koerner, wine lovers from way back. We grew up in the Clare Valley but have since spent time working and living around Australia and overseas.
We make wine from the Clare Valley and Adelaide Hills, under three different brands – Koerner Wine, LEKO Wine and Brothers Koerner.
We work with both traditional and unique varieties and focus on staying honest to the variety and the vineyard.
Ultimately we aim to produce wines to a style that we enjoy drinking. Generally these wines are light, fresh, textured and well structured – easy drinking wines. To achieve this we pick early and use a minimal intervention winemaking style.
Our reds are bright, vibrant and can be enjoyed young with a great balance between primary fruit, acidity and phenolics.
Our whites are aromatic, expressing primary fruit while showing mouthfeel, structure and texture.
Koerner Wine was established in 2014 with the intent to make unique wine from the Clare Valley.
The wines are mainly produced from our family vineyard, Gullyview. We also source fruit from neighbouring vineyards, Parish and Vivian. All fruit is grown within a 750m radius.
With a focus on fruit quality and transparent winemaking, our wines are textural and approachable, light, fresh, and ultimately easy drinking.
