'Grazing country', said the locals, 'only some loony from the city would plant vines there.'

In 1975, Coonawarra had grown grapes for a century, but Koppamurra's was only the second vineyard to establish just to the north of Coonawarra, at a little place called Joanna in the region now known as Wrattonbully – a name chosen not without debate and difficulty, as you'll hear.

More than thirty years later, Wrattonbully is recognised as a premier wine-growing area, with almost as many vines as its better known neighbour – certainly an accolade to John Greenshields, who planted Koppamurra's vineyard there.

In 1991, new partners came into the business and a new focus on marketing direct to the customers – not so unusual now, but fairly new at the time. The direct marketing concept has served Koppamurra well ever since.

In 1995, our semi-rural tranquillity was rudely jolted when some very large wine companies decided that ‘Koppamurra' would be a lovely name for the shiny new region just north of Coonawarra – at that time still without a name.
