Established in the late 1870s, this family-owned property, about 6km from Toodyay has over five generations of winemaking history. The winery has been in the Wood family since 1919, and still contains many of the original 470 and 770 gallon casks within its cellar.
All grapes are grown on scenic undulating slopes around the property, and are farmed with environmental conservation as one of the winery's main values. The natural approach sees only mineral fertilisers and soil microbes used to grow chemical-free, quality grapes.
Coorinja produces a large selection of table and fortified wines including Shiraz, Grenache, Cabernet-Shiraz, Port, Sherry, Muscat, Liqueur Muscat, Ginger Wine and Marsala. The wines are handpicked by the Wood family and their friends and pressed in an old wooden basket press, following the same family tradition used for over five generations.
Open Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays from 10am-5pm, or on alternate days by appointment only.
Coorinja is an Aboriginal word believed to mean "place of the seven springs". These natural springs surround the property. A short five minute walk down a bush track reveals remnants of the Ringa Bridge, a significant railway track built circa 1887 that was closed down in 1966.
