About The Winery

Narkoojee, meaning “place of flowers”, was a dairy farm owned and operated by Edna and Athelstan Friend, since the early1940s. 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. Today the winery enjoys a five red star status as rated by James Halliday. In terms of winemaking, father and son team, Harry and Axel Friend make for an unbeatable combination of talents. They share the desire to experimentwith new techniques aiming to perfect the winemaking process, which gives Narkoojee wines their unique characteristics.
