Zema wines produce a very good wine. Great reds. We visited during the week and it was quiet so the salesperson had time to explain the wines. She was very friendly and knowledgeable. Recommend

Zema Estate has a nice selection of wines. My favourite was the Cab Sav and the blend called Cluney.

Popped in for Coonawarra by night and had Mrs Zema's famous puzza and bought a bottle of their Shiraz. It was excellent - their Clooneys and CabShiraz's are outstanding. We love their chilli paste as well. Dont miss this one anytime you are here.

Zema Estate is a long standing winery in the Coonawarra. A Cellar Door tasting will rewards you with great Cabernets and some nice Shiraz. Well worth the visit

Visited here the other week after a couple of days in Penola. We were the only ones there so got great service from the lady behind the counter who was lovely to chat too. Fantastic reds and value for money. Definitely one to revisit

This is one of the standout wineries in Coonawarra. Truly great reds made by Greg Clayfield never fail to impress. The value for money here is very impressive. If you're here on the right occasion the food - homemade arancini and rigatoni pasta sauce are...More
