Bowen Estate

"Certain Doug Bowen has produced some great wines down the years, for the 1979 Bowen Estate Cabernet Sauvignon and 1989 Bowen Estate Shiraz were both drinking well almost two decades later and had aged better than some Bordeaux that I could mention! ... These are well-crafted wines that should impart vinous delights for a decade, possibly more if you have a penchant for mature wines." Neal Martin, Robert Parker

"Our family owned and operated business is a dream of Doug and Joy Bowen that has gradually been evolving over the past 40 years and now involves their daughter, Emma. Located on prime Coonawarra terra rossa soil we produce a small quintessential range of classic Coonawarra wines." - Bowen Estate
