Windowrie have been exporting wine to various parts of the world for over 12 years. One of our favourite export markets is Japan. This year we welcomed a visiting wine maker from Japan to work on a special project we have in mind for the Japanese Market. Meet Shige...

Watch this video with Windowrie Wine Maker Anthony D'Onise about the harvest season ahead, the team we have on board and the process from grape to glass. Questions, comments and feedback are all welcome.

The first of the Windowrie vineyards were planted in the late 1980’s and consisted of both “traditional” and “non-traditional” varieties including Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet, Tempranillo, Sangiovese, Chenin Blanc, Petit Verdot and Verdelho.
A Family Owned Boutique Winery
Our family is committed to discovering varietals that are suited to our region. The wines are made to reflect the styles of these varieties when grown in our climate and soil at Windowrie in Cowra.
In 1999 David O’Dea made the decision to build the first winery in the Cowra region with a view to increase the quality of the Windowrie range and to better service the wine growing region. Windowrie winery is organically certified and provides wine making and fruit processing services for a number of different growers, both regionally and interstate.
Windowrie believe that the great strength of having a winery is the short time between harvest of the fruit and crushing process, allowing for the fruit characters identified in the vineyard to be captured quickly in the wine making process
In 2012 the first Pique Poul Blanc vines arrived in Australia. Working in conjunction with Steve Feletti (Moonlight Flat Oysters) Windowrie will produce the first vintage of this French variety otherwise known as “The Oyster Wine”.
