Cellar Door

Drinking wine here is different than in other places. The Cellar Door gives our visitors a kind of front row seat to our winemaking works, complete with tutored tastings and wines you can’t drink anywhere else, including late releases and carefully cellared museum selections. Here, you can wander through the original barrel hall, relax in the courtyard overlooking the vines, taste our olive oil, or enjoy bites of cheese and antipasti. Be inspired by our carefully curated artwork, or peruse our range of luxury collection items, which is available for sale here.

The Cellar Door is open daily:
Monday to Friday: 10am — 5pm
Weekends & Public Holidays: 11am — 5pm
Closed Good Friday and Christmas Day.
