Why settle for a wine tasting experience if you can do wine pairing?! The chocolate & wine as well as the Turkish Delight & wine pairing was very nice. Could not resist the balsamic infused salt grinder and Shiraz salt grinder! Use it daily and think back of a sunny winters day we enjoyed on this wine estate. The artwork... More

We enjoyed the wine & chocolate as well as the wine & Turkish Delight pairing tremendously. You can sit inside or outside. Wish we had enough time to enjoy a cup of coffee at the Deli or lunch at the restaurant. Child friendly with a lovely play area. I really like all the artwork on display outside.

Monday 10 August 2015 was my 1st visit to Lourensford Wine Estate. What an amazing experience. We started off visiting the coffee shop, loved the coffee and the cheesecake. Then did the wine and chocolate pairing which was excellent, the honey liqueur with the mint chocolate was outstanding. The service was 5 star. Highly recommended. The setting magnificent with such... More

I have attended a number of events (sport, expos, entertainment, at this Estate and each and every one has been a pleasure to attend - well organised, good parking, safe, and well cared for gardens and facilities. Always something in bloom and a great place to take photographs! Excellent restaurant! Booking advised.

Superb wine tasting experience with a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic somelier, ended up purchasing quite a few bottles, and some yummy spice grinders for the kitchen. The grounds and situation of this estate are simply beautiful, and I would love to return on a sunnier day!

We visited the Estate in summer and winter and enjoyed it as much each time. In the summer the greenery and beautiful surrounds are lush and vibrant. In the winter they are stark but as beautiful. The wine and chocolate and wine and turkish delight pairing has to be experienced. Wine tasting can become rather staid but the chocolate and... More

We have been here many times to visit the restaurant, Millhouse, which is excellent but we recently tried a wine and chocolate pairing. From the moment we walked in till we left we had a fantastic experience. Friendly and well informed staff. Great chocolate and wine. We will definitely be back.

We popped into Lourensford Wine Estate towards the end of the day but were still graciously welcomed and provided with an informative wine tasting, including the honey liquor which would be great over a good quality vanilla ice cream. The service was impeccable and the young gentleman who assisted us was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We really enjoyed the MCC... More
