We've tasted here for years. Carted many cases with us. Although ownership has change the winery and cellar door have not. However, for the first time ever, tasting in summer of 2017, we found no wine worthy of carting off

Came here on a wine tour, rude service, refused to open a bottle of wine purchased there and are not licensed to do anything but taste. Not impressed, would rather mass produced eg jacobs creek

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.

We were not charged for the wine tasting. It was one of our favorites and sorry we ran out of time to make a second trip there. The wines were very good!

I agree with you. We were a “two person” tour, had reservations, and then a group of maybe 15 folk arrived, and seemed to only want to drink. Think they were an extended family. I have no answer to what seems to be a... More
