Wine Tasting at Kalari

Kalari Wines, a boutique family-owned vineyard, is located on the scenic banks of the Lachlan River in Cowra, New South Wales. Originally founded by Valto and Pamela Heikkinen in 1998, Kalari has since changed hands but continues to uphold its legacy of producing premium wines. The vineyard is known for its aged vines, which yield intense fruit, particularly from the Verdelho and Shiraz varieties. These grapes are transformed into award-winning premium reserve-grade wines by the skilled winemaker at Madrez Winery, Chris Derrez.

Kalari's wine range is distinguished by its innovative approach, with unique wine styles that set it apart in the Cowra region. The vineyard is renowned for its three different styles of Verdelho, as well as its Shiraz. The current wine selection includes Chardonnay, dry Verdelho, fortified Verdelho, and Shiraz. Each wine reflects the vineyard's commitment to quality and uniqueness, offering a distinct tasting experience that captures the essence of the Cowra terroir.
