Passion, dedication and commitment to excellence, best describes the remarkable story of Coonawarra’s Zema family. In 1959 Demetrio Zema arrived in Coonawarra from Italy to marry his fiancée, Francesca. With a great passion for wine and a family tradition of grape growing that spans generations, Demetrio found that Coonawarra could provide him with the opportunity to fulfil a lifelong ‘dream’ of producing his own world class wines. The dream became a reality in 1982 when Demetrio and Francesca, with two sons Nick and Matt, purchased a small block of mature vines on the prized Terra Rossa soil in the heart of Coonawarra.
