Award-winning Coonawarra winemaker shaking things up in one of Oz's most traditional wine regions

  • Before she became a winemaker, Kate Goodman was on course for a career in biomedical science. But after finishing her studies, she quickly realised that a life spent in a lab wasn’t for her. Thankfully, she’d specialised in fermentation. So in a slam dunk move, she traded in her white coat for a pair of grape-stained jeans and hasn’t looked back since.

  • Kate now has over 30 vintages under her belt, working at top wineries around Australia - in places like McLaren Vale, the Grampians, and Yarra Valley - as well as France, Spain, and the USA. And she’s earned a reputation as a forward-thinking winemaker who’s not afraid to shake things up “if you don't experiment and push boundaries you’re never going to improve your wine quality.”

  • In 2016, Kate came to Coonawarra, one of Australia’s most traditional wine regions, where her new, modern-style Penley Estate wines have earned her top plaudits. Including being named 2018 Winemaker of the Year at the Australian Women in Wine Awards. An incredible accolade!
