Raidis Estate, located on the northern edge of Penola in the center of Coonawarra, is a family-owned winery. Chris and Fran Raidis started the winery more than forty years ago, and today, the winey is operated by their next generation. Emma and Stevo own the winery and take care of the work going on there. The winemakers work every day to produce premium wines with minimum intervention in their boutique vineyard using sustainable methods of viticulture.
The winemakers make these wines for people to enjoy them with their friends and family. They love people visiting them and enjoy with them alongside their new production of wines. It is more than a winery and a family business. The people at the winery live and breathe this lifestyle and believe that the best work can be done only if it is your true passion. The winemakers make use of goats in their vineyards. The goats go into the vines to clean the remaining fruit and stay in the vineyards to eat grass during the winter season. It helps in making the soil healthy by returning its organic matter.
The main varieties that grow here are the Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc. The workers handpick the best grapes out of the produce, and they go into the production of their famous and high-quality red and white wines. The winemakers keep up their hard work to create exciting and new experiences for their visitors.
