Banks Thargo Wines, located on the Eastern side of Coonawarra, was established in 1990. The vineyard, which surrounds the picturesque Penola Racecourse, has plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Merlot.

One of the smallest wine producers in Coonawarra, entirely family owned and currently run with three generations of the Kidman family involved.

Our aim is to consistently produce quality wines with strong varietal flavours and intense colours. We achieved this by keeping our cropping levels low by hand pruning and of course, a little help with Coonawarra’s cool climate and famous terra rossa soil.
