Experience Karatta Wines

Tasting Room 2

Visit our Tasting Room in the Main Street of Robe, 41b Victoria Street.
Open  Saturday & Sunday, 11am – 4pm

Experience the wines created by our unique coastal hinterland of the wild Robe region – a windswept landscape that produces wines of subtlety, richness and beauty.

Soft elegant reds and crisp whites, all our wines, (bar the cheeky Moscato) are Estate Grown and produced.

We are a family business owned by David & Peg Woods, who bought their farm, Griffin Pastoral Company in 1975, some 42 years ago.

Our Winery and Vineyards are located at the family property on the Limestone Coast, just 10 minutes drive from the township centre of Robe on the road towards the Coonawarra, the Robe-Penola Road.


Karatta Wines offers two locations for your Tasting Experience depending on the size of the group and what you’d like to enjoy whilst visiting our region:

Karatta Wines Tasting Room structured and/or casual tastings for up to 16 guests, located in the main street of Robe @ 41b Victoria Street

Karatta Vineyards & Winery casual tastings catering for up to 50 guests at a time, can accommodate winery tours and lunch organised with local producers by prior arrangement


Learn about the Process

Karatta Wines is situated in the wild coastal hinterland of Robe and have an extensive portfolio of estate grown varietals.  We are committed to the production of ready to drink wines that authentically reflect the maritime climate:  characterised by soft, elegant reds and crisp whites.

The Karatta Wine Company owns 2 vineyards, Tenison and 12 Mile.

“Tenison Vineyard” is located close to our original farm known as “Frog Island”.  This farm has been in the family for over 20 years. Established in 1997, the Tenison Vineyard is named after a family relative and local identity, Father Julian Tenison Woods.  The vineyard is ideally situated on the east facing slopes of the Dairy Range.

“12 Mile Vineyard” was acquired in 2003 in association with the 12 Mile Winery.  This vineyard is exactly 12 miles from Robe via the main road and is near the first camp used by the Chinese whilst trekking from Robe to the Victorian goldfields.

Both have the famous terra rossa soil over limestone.  Being close to the Great Southern Ocean, they also benefit from the maritime climate with long ripening periods.
