The cellar door staff were so incredibly welcoming. We loved our tasting, the wines are incredible, especially the reds. We were delighted by their premium wine. We loved the historic buildings and interpretive area displaying the rich red terra rosa soil in which this region is famous for. The staff are passionate, knowledgable and delightful to interact with.

Have been to Katnook several times and it is the best tasting experience in the area! The old limestone cellar door and interesting terra rossa pit means I am hooked even before setting foot inside. The tasting area is beautiful and I love that I can try the whole range not just the cheaper wines. Had a yummy cheese platter... More

Cant make my mind up. I think i prefer the Prodigy. Not many wineries have their premium wines open for tasting. We have been here twice now, 2012 and 2014 and have both times been offered the Oddysey. Brilliant wine, wish i could afford to drink it all the time. The service here is excellent, although it does depend on... More

After first visiting Katnook a couple of years ago we promised ourselves we'd come back and the second visit was just as good as the first. Lovely wines and friendly people, what could be better? The only downer was the limited space in the boot of the car for all we wanted to purchase. For those who love a nice... More

I visited on a period of the year that they have all the best vines available! And the lady knows a lot about it and she teaches a bit... so I am now a big fan! We bought some bottles after the free tasting, but should have bought more... lovely.

Have been a couple of times to the new cellar door at Katnook, it's a great setting and the wines are great to match. Really like what Wayne Stebhens is doing atm with the range of wines at Katnook. Nice little profile of the terra rossa outside as a bonus.

Contrary to the review written on April 25, we visit Katnook every May and are always impressed by the generous hospitality of the cellar door staff and today lived up to our expectations. Katnooks range of the signature Coonaworra cabernet from the famous terra rossa soil admirably displays entry level through premium to super premium cabernet wine. Further to Katnook's... More

After experiencing some of the wonderful reds (discerning drinkers might steer clear of the whites in this region) the Katnook entry level & Estate range were not to my tastes. The premium range however were delightful. The real disappointment of the experience were the cellar door staff. Clearly having done the job for too long and no longer containing any... More

If you are in Coonawarra and fancy sampling some wines, then you must spend time here. Take a package, relax, soak in the wonderful ambience and enjoy the wine with the cheese.
