This was a little gem. Great ocean view. This is a modern facility that sells a range of wines, café, local produce and Australian giftware and clothing in a very relaxed setting. The staff were most attentive. Highly recommended.

I'm not a big fan of pizza covered in strange toppings (give me a Margarita any day) but the Whiting Pizza was rather moreish, and the accompanying wine excellent, so don't be put off. The views here are to die for, and there's even the opportunity for a little retail therapy, so it's definitely worth braving the dirt road, which... More

We enjoyed a great lunch, sadly the day was very wet and view obscured. Has a great gift shop attached to the cellar door.

Ate lunch at the cellar door with a 4 year old. Amazing views, friendly staff, good coffee and the pizzas had slightly exotic but tasty toppings. The 4 year old appreciated the fenced off play area below the balcony with a small play area which also kept her away from everyone else. The wine was OK.

Great place to sit and relax, and enjoy a bite to eat. Wines were average at best. Hard to be this close to the McLaren Vale and turn out alcoholic grape juice.

This has to be amongst the most scenic cellar door in the world. Wine and food are both decent. They wont disappoint. To pass the time you can purchase a can of golf balls and wack them from a tee at the cellar across a valley towards a distant flag (it would have amongst the hardest golf holes in the... More
