Wynns Coonawarra Estate is an Australian winery located in Coonawarra, South Australia within the Coonawarra wine region.[1]

The estate was founded in 1891 by John Riddoch. He recognised the potential of the now famous red soil and planted vines. In 1951, the vineyard was bought by David and Samuel Wynn; it is now the region's largest vineyard owned by Treasury Wine Estates.
