Believe it or not, wine isn’t everything. But we think it’s an essential ingredient, a universal delight that easily finds its place in so many other wonderful aspects of our lives.

Of course, good food goes well with good wine. We’ve got that covered. But we’re also into art, music, design, philanthropy and community. Friendship and fun times. That’s why we frequently commission beautiful works of art, collaborate with designers on luxury accessories collections, hold live concerts on our grounds and throw parties around the world.

Our holistic approach to enjoyment becomes quite apparent if you visit us here at Bird in Hand. We also like to think our multi-dimensional character seeps into our wine, so you can taste it in every glass, wherever you happen to be.

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.

Concerts

Music is good. Live music is even better. Better still, live music and good wine. It’s the best combination of things. That’s why we set up an outdoor stage and hold concerts on our grounds, inviting some of Australia’s best loved musicians to perform. It’s one of the more special things that happens at Bird in Hand. Join us for an upcoming concert.

 
 

Bespoke Events

Wine is good for a celebration and there always seems to be something to celebrate. We regularly throw parties to launch products, premier shows and celebrate milestones, our own and those of our friends and collaborators. Heightened by the constant flow of our own wines, Bird in Hand events happen all over the world and usually include a lively mix of artists, designers, celebrities, creators and other endlessly fascinating characters.
