Friendly wine tasting experience

Lovely Wine Estate with very friendly cellar door staff. The wines on offer were both white and red and the outlook of the building is lovely.

My partner and I were on a romantic Coonawarra experience. While travelling through Coonawarra we stopped in to Katnook Estate winery for a cellar door tasting. Firstly we were met by a beautiful vinyard surrounding old historic buildings and sheds. We thought to ourselves 'this is a beautiful location'. Inside was warm, welcoming and friendly. Considering we only came to... More

Naomi was very welcoming and gave us lots of good information about the wines we tasted. No rushing us although we were quite late on a winter's afternoon. A winery well worth visiting.

Knowledgeable, friendly and open staff with their winery's full range available for tasting. Cellar door set up is also very nice. Good feel to the place. Loved their Merlot but just couldn't get engaged with the other wines. That is a matter of taste though. Impressed by the fact that they were supportive if other producers and offered some really...

Had a short tasting stop at this wonderful winery. Naomi was our host and she was very informative about Katnook, where to eat lunch, other wineries as well as the stories behind each of the Katnook wines. What impressed me was the total lack of running other places down, rather she talked about what each winery brought to the district.... More

It was lovely pulling up to the winery to see the ladies playing around with a basket full of beautiful puppies. The service was fantastic at the cellar door and the wines were delicious. It was also great to receive free freight on my wines and we cannot wait for our delivery!

We had a fabulous visit ! One of our party had connections with the Winery and we had a private tour with a lovely young female trainee winemaker. Then we had a cheese platter and the tasting ! I loved all of the wines and had a real problem keeping my purchases to two bottles that I could put into... More

After a week touring Mclarenvale, Barossa and Coonawarra, we made Katnook our last stop. And we didn't want to go anywhere else after because it couldn't have possibly topped our experience at Katnook. Disclaimer - we did know someone who introduced us personally to our hosts Michelle and Naomi in advance. But I'm sure the experience is just as rewarding... More

Katnook is one of the most consistently good wineries in the region, who makes Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet sing on the palate.
