Ottelia

Their original move to Coonawarra over 25 years ago was never supposed to be permanent, but John and Melissa Innes fell in love with the area and bought a parcel on the Limestone Coast. The property was dotted with native Waterlilys, hense the botanical name used for thier wine label: Ottelia.

With over half a lifetime of experience, John has built himself quite the resume. From working 20 vintages at Rymill to his 5 years serving under the esteemed Italian wine pioneer Carolo Corino. Using his extensive knowledge of the South Eastern pocket of South Australia, John selects parcels of fruit he believes will show the best expression of that variety.
