Vale Demetrio Zema

June 30, 2020

Demetrio arrived in Coonawarra on the train in 1959 and worked as a house painter before establishing Zema Estate with his wife Francesca and two sons Matt and Nick in 1982. His original purchase was the eight acres of 1966-planted shiraz vines beside the winery. The Zemas quickly became part of the wine region's fabric.
