Narkoojee, meaning “place of flowers”, was a dairy farm owned and operated by Edna and Athelstan Friend, since the early 1940s. Their son Harry planted the first experimental vines back in 1980 and with his wife Val, moved to the property from Melbourne in 1995. Narkoojee had very humble beginnings with the Cellar Door operating out of a small weatherboard bungalow at the back of Harry and Val Friend’s house. The grapes were taken to the old butter factory in Glengarry, which served as their first winery.

Father and son team, Harry and Axel Friend make for an unbeatable combination of talents. They share the desire to experiment with new techniques aiming to perfect the winemaking process, which gives Narkoojee wines their unique characteristics. 

Today the winery enjoys a five red star status as rated by James Halliday. This five red star rating describes an ‘outstanding winery regularly producing wines of exemplary quality and typicity’ putting Narkoojee in the top 10% of Australia’s wineries.

Taste the full range of our current release wines while enjoying the vineyard with its impressive backdrop of the Strzelecki Ranges.
