Went to Somerled this past weekend and had a great cellar door experience. We sat outside while we did the $5 tasting. All the wines were really consistent, with a lovely complex lightness. Out of all the cellar door experiences I've had, this was probably the most enjoyable. A very friendly and informative host (the winemaker's daughter), a beautiful setting,... More

A day out in Handorf and we just happened on the Somerled cellar door. Like a magnet it drew us in! We'd already had a day in the Barossa, so to increase the knowledge of local wine was a must. There was a small tasting fee, but the tastings were generous, not to mention delicious. I couldn't find fault with... More

Wow. Stumbled across the Somerled cellar door a few years ago while staying in Hahndorf. We are no wine experts but know what we like...and we found it at Somerled. Great wines at unbelievable prices and a chance to chew the fat with Rob the winemaker (unbeknownst to us at the time an industry legend) his lovely wife Heather and... More

So happy we dropped by for a tasting. Lucy and co. were so welcoming, I was blown away by their hospitality. Their knowledge of wine was outstanding, and being wine novices we really appreciated their insight! To top it all off Somerled wines were the best wines we tasted on our trip to the hills. Grab a bottle or six... More

You are denying yourself if you don't visit Somerled in Hahndorf - don't be swayed by the $5 tasting fee - it is worth it. The staff are really friendly and you won't be disappointed. Probably the best Shiraz in the $30 price range.

This is an exceptional venue for wine-tasting. The real feature is the staff and ambience, which is always friendly and welcoming, with no pressure to buy. Recommended without reservation.

If you are visiting Adelaide Hills wineries or Handorf, you must visit Somerled's Cellar Door. The wine exceptional and the atmosphere is relaxed. This is a family business with an exceptional wine maker. They take pride in their wines and share their story with visitors. The Chardonnay, Sparkling and Shiraz are our favorites, but all are quite good. You will... More

This little cellar door in the heart of Hahndorf is my favorite, not only for its beautiful wine and lovely atmosphere but because it is owned and run by a wonderful family. You are always made to feel welcome no matter how busy they are. This is a winery not to miss especially if Chardonnay, Fume Blanc or Shiraz is... More

The first tasting we started our mini wine tour on, and one we finished at on our last day. Delicious wines, amazing friendly staff and a cozy, warm atmosphere. Will happily return.
