The family owned Bowen Estate lies along famed strip of Coonawarra terra rossa soils in the South Easterly corner of South Australia.
Founded by Doug and Joy Bowen in 1972, on what was formerly a dairy farm, the first Bowen Estate wines were released from the 1975 vintage. More recently Doug has been assisted by his daughter Emma for both winemaking and managing the viticulture at Bowen Estate. The wines from this well regarded winery are classically restrained in style and pleasing to a loyal clientele.
Bowen Estate Winemaking
Producing fruit of optimal quality is paramount at Bowen Estate. All vines are hand pruned with an arch cane trellis system which ensures even budburst and balanced bunch exposure during ripening. This result is fruit filled wines lacking the common mintiness often seen in Coonawarra well balanced with soft, fine tannins. All wines are made on the property and sourced only from Estate vines.
