Coorinja Winery is a native name for the place of Seven Springs. Established in the late 1870's. The winery has operated continuously since establishment, making it one of the oldest wineries in the state. Coorinja Winery has been in the Wood family since 1919 soon to be the 100th year anniversary.

 

The cellar is built of brick & stone reaching as high as two stories and in some places three stories containing a large number of the original 470 and 770 gallon casks.

 

All the grapes are grown on scenic undulating slopes around the Toodyay property and are farmed with environmental conservation as one of our main values; working with mother nature not against her.

 

During the summer months when the grapes are sweet and ripe Michael and his son, along with a small group of locals hand pick the grapes. Once hand picked and put into wooden bins, in the cool of the following morning the grapes are crushed. Following this process the grapes are fermented then pressed using a wooden basket press, the same family tradition that has been used for over five generations.  Wherever possible Coorinja Winery uses gravity to gently transfer wine.

The underground storey, known as the Darkroom is an area to barrel age the red wines at a constant cool temperature, one of the most important production processes for red wine. Ensuring the wine reaches our valued customers the wine is estate bottled by hand and sealed with a label of love. 

 

"A fortified haven"

Coorinja Winery Vineyard  

We love our vines and show them some tender loving care to ensure they provide the best quality grapes to guarantee the best quality wine. Coorinja Winery operates using a natural approach to vineyard management applying only mineral fertilisers & soil microbes and excludes the use of harmful chemicals.

 

Many of the vineyards at Coorinja Winery are unirrigated however one of the vineyards consisting of Chenin Blanc and Shiraz, situated on Toodyay Road are irrigated using water from "Seven Springs" found on our property and filtered through a reverse osmosis process. 

Named from an Aboriginal word believed to mean "place of the seven springs", the springs at Coorinja Winery surround the cellar and lead to the old Ringa bridge, just a  short 5 minute walk down the bush tracks. 

 

Coorinja Cellar  

We are concentrating on production of red table wines, fortified styles & liquors.

In the future we plan on releasing a limited amount of our oldest Tawny's, Muscats & Liquors.
