    Wonderful wines and cellar door.
    Was a very hot day and we had a lovely view indoors. The Cellar Door is impressive but welcoming. Ashley was excellent, she showed us some lovely wines and really treated us to a wonderful experience. Add it to your list of must do cellar doors. It certainly exceeded our expectations.

    Live music 🎶 and Magnificent scenery 🙌
    My husband and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary at the beautiful Nepenthe vineyard Balhannah. The delightful Alice and Cooper both served us with their expertise in the industry delivered by an amazing platter served by Jacquie. If you’re off to great entertainment and a beautiful scenery, this is a place to go and visit 10/10 ⭐️

    Tasting with a view
    We had a really terrific tasting hosted by Jacqui who shared her great wine knowledge and some stories about the winery. We really enjoyed the beautiful setting and big glass windows. Could easily spend a long afternoon there.

    You will just live everything about Nepenthe
    Don’t miss out on an experience to taste some of the most delicious wines in the region. The entire experience is an overall highlight to any trip to Adelaide. Alice was so welcoming and knowledgeable about the wines we tasted and the range of wines at Nepenthe will not disappoint. We also selected a mini cheese platter with our tasting. The food, service and view was outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and highly recommend Nepenthe wines and the location. You will be so happy you decided to make the trip.

Delicious wide range of wines but most of all incredible knowledge and service by Alice. We rode our bikes here and enjoyed a lovely wine tasting. You could spend most of a day here on the lawn enjoying the wines. It got suddenly very busy a little before 3pm and I’m glad we mostly missed the rush so Alice had time to discuss each wine with us. She was very accommodating to our tastes throughout the tasting. Thanks!

We booked a sit-down wine tasting, Charlotte expertly guided us through the entire list. All the wines were very good, with the whites being particularly good. Alongside our tasting we ahead a DIY platter which was delicious. A good range of options were available for the platter, being able to choose only what we wanted suited us well.

I became a member on a recent visit last year and took an Austrian couple with us who had just come to Australia for an extended holiday. I love the wines and the service from the Cellar Door staff is superb. We were there well over closing time and able to amend the tasting offer to suit our friends who preferred whites. Superb prices but getting the 20% discount makes them a more viable option. The setting is lovely and can't wait for the restaurant to be completed.

Would leave a 10 star review if We could. We had the most amazing tasting here! Our tasting was with Alice (I believe) she was amazing with talking us through every little thing and the wine was great! The place is stunning and well worth the trip! Love the build your own cheese board idea too. We did have a hiccup with the eftpos machine but they handled it like pros and fixed everything up! Can’t wait to come back!

Beautiful entrance through the vineyards and the view from cellar door is spectacular.

Cellar door atmosphere however is somewhat lacking. The tasting was good but I felt that I was being pushed through a list of wines - many of which I was not interested in tasting.
I wasn't asked if there was anything on the list I particularly wanted to look at - and I did. I couldn't get a word in edgewise with the staff So I poured most of the unwanted tastings in the spittoon. Waste of wine - waste of everyone's time.

Any comments that were made by our group to the staff member looking after us were responded with what sounded like script information on the wine. No engagement with us or any particular interest in why we were in the Adelaide Hills, where we had traveled from or too. How we liked the wine - nothing!

All felt a bit insincere to be honest. Bought some wine and left thinking I'll take my interstate guests elsewhere next time.

Plenty of wineries with nice views, good wine AND warm hospitality.

The recent lunch for VIP members was brilliant. Fabulous food prepared by Sprout which was matched with the amazing Nepenthe wines. Even without the lunch a wine tasting at Nepenthe is a must if you are looking for good value/quality Adelaide Hills wine and it's so close to the city.
