Cooper Wines was established in 2001 when Max and Vicki Cooper realised a thirty year dream by purchasing the Allanmere vineyard and winery on Lovedale Road, Lovedale, in the Lower Hunter Valley of New South Wales.

The land is part of the old Penfolds Sparkling Vale vineyard, which was purchased in 1920 as the company expanded its Hunter Valley holdings. Planting was commenced in 1921 under the supervision of Harold J. Davoren and the first vintage was harvested in 1924. Up to 32 hectares was planted, which was mainly Semillon. Penfolds abandoned the vineyard after rainy seasons repeatedly bogged the ground.

In 1985, Dr Newton Potter and his wife Ginny established Allanmere, building the existing winery and producing award winning wines until 1996 when they sold the property & winery to Monarch Winemaking Services.
