Cofield Wines

A Rutherglen favourite with a wine for every occasion

Following in his fathers footsteps

The Cofield family has been part of the Rutherglen wine community for over 100 years. Frank Cofield began working at the St Leonard’s Vineyard in 1909. His grandson Max Cofield would spend his school holidays there chipping weeds and would later lead to inside jobs at Seppelts and All Saints Winery. Max had always wanted to start his own winery and in 1990 that became a reality and Cofield Wines was established. Damien followed in his fathers footsteps and took over the winery in 2007. The winery specialises in sparkling wine using the Method Traditionelle process and produce a range of white wines and Rutherglen favourites - reds, sweet and fortified wines.

Passionately supporting a cause

Since 2012, the winery has held the Pink Pedal Party in November each year. This event is held to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. Funds raised have gone to support the Breast Cancer Foundation and recently have been used to support local breast care nurses. Given the recent challenges presented by COVID the last couple of fundraisers have involved collaborating with a local artist to design the labels for limited-release wine Funds raised have gone to the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre Trust Fund. Karen Cofield, the mother of Damien, passed away to breast cancer in 2017, after living with the disease for many years. It’s a cause that is near and dear to all at the winery.
