Cottontail Wines, Wagga Wagga NSW
562 Pattersons Road, Eunanoreenya, NSW, 2650 (02) 69284554

Our story started in 2001 as Wagga Wagga local, family man Gerry McCormick established the newest winery in the Riverina – Harefield Ridge, with the release of their first commercial vintage under the brand Cottontail. Our winery and restaurant are situated 15 km to the north-east of Wagga Wagga, NSW on one-hundred acres of undulating land with ten acres of vineyard planted in November 2002. We also planted over 175 olive trees that line our driveway and are fit to cope with the harsh Australian environment.

The healthy soils on our property have created full-bodied wines with a smooth balanced flavour, and a soft taste that lingers to enhance the complex berry fruit flavours. We originally started supplying Casella with fruit destined for inclusion in their Yellow Tail brand that has achieved stellar success on overseas markets throughout the years. The initial release of our wine received strong recommendation and support, and as such the Cottontails brand has now grown to include eight varieties.

In 2018, we decided to update our branding to encompass all the aspects our property has to offer, and we now are under the ‘umbrella’ Cottontail Wines. As we continue to mature, so does our vineyard and olive trees with continued success of Cottontail wines reaching the international wine market. With the family duo of Gerry and his daughter, Lilly, we have established a strong connection throughout the Riverina, NSW and will continue to grow for many years to come. The unique label design pictures a hare on the front label, one of many living on our property. Keep an eye out for the distinctive design and you will be refreshingly rewarded!
