We had lunch here after doing a lot of wine tasting ,so it was good to relax in this restaurant. We chose the 3 course menu for $59, and the food was superb. The service was great and would certainly go back again

Family owned Maxwell Wines is an idyllic place for an unforgettable food and wine experience. Constructed from limestone and old solid timber, the natural warmth of the winery is complemented by large picture windows with breathtaking views overlooking the rolling hills of McLaren Vale. With guests surrounded by a vista of vines, the setting provides the perfect atmosphere for a relaxed and intimate occasion. Michelin Star trained chef Fabian Lehmann's food draws from local, fresh seasonal produce with a real home-grown flavour through working closely with growers and local suppliers. This is food that is meant to be enjoyed amongst friends, accompanied by a glass of the some of the region's finest wine.
