Description: Woodstock Coterie, built in 1988, was designed to nestle among the towering century old gum trees. The design took into consideration the location of each of these amazing native trees. Not one significant tree was cut down to accommodate building the restaurant. Hence, the Coterie's unique semicircle shape. Rammed earth walls encase the dining area, providing a warm feel and at the same time complementing The Coterie's unique quintessentially Australian landscape. Glass doors and windows frame the lush native gardens creating an atrium feel for the discerning patron. Upstairs there is a mezzanine level available for private tastings, conferences and functions.The name 'Coterie' was chosen for the word's meaning; the gathering of a group of people, or rather a circle of friends, for a specific purpose... that for us includes great food, good company and finest wines at Woodstock

“Love the food and wine here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

This was our second visit here to both the cellar door and restaurant. Love Jimi at the cellar door, a quietly spoken very knowledgeable friendly guy. We selected our wines and he packed them whilst we had an absolutely beautiful lunch - top class restaurant with fabulous food and great service. Beautiful surroundings would make a great wedding venue. We will definitely visit again when we are next in McLaren Vale.

“Our Wedding plus visits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

We got married at this beautiful venue in March 2012. The staff were amazing in organising our special day with huge thanks to Zac, who went above and beyond to make our day the best ever.

We called in for lunch just the other day, the food as usual was exceptional and the service fantastic. They had 2 guitarists playing soothing tunes which made our lunch more relaxing (sun 3 feb)

Woodstock may be a bit out of the way for some but is well worth the visit.. Make sure you take the time to stay awhile and enjoy the food, atmosphere and of course the wonderful wines.

Can't wait to see you again for our anniversary and try the moscato x

“Consistently good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We've been coming here on and off for nearly 20 years - more so in the last couple of years as the kids have got older.

Every time - the service is fast & friendly. The food is always interesting, fresh, and consistently good with decent size serves.

Frequently they have live jazz on a weekend lunchtime, and it's often possible to roll up without a booking and find they can squeeze you in.
