Although this cellar door is popular for a reason for having very good wines, it is very small tasting area . People are rammed in so go early to avoid the rush. Staff were cheerful and knowledgeable and the wine of a high standard.

Original stone buildings provide a charming area for sampling some of the Barossa's best wines. Plenty of history to take in, a good range of wines to taste, and informative helpful staff. Free parking.
