This is my third visit to Mad B@stard Wines. It's a quirky winery but always worth a visit. The actual mad b@stard, who's only been there once in my visits, is a somewhat interesting character and probably not to everyone's tastes. That said the winery...More

Absolutely great cellar door and even better wines. Small and personal, owners are very friendly and tell a great story as to how this winery came about. Bought a few bottles to bring home, gutted that I can’t buy them anywhere back home

The selection of wines is great. There are some varieties that I had not heard of. Some could take offence to the staff manners but it us part of the culture. Love the signs.

What a character. Driving up his tree lined drive with various humorous signs set the tone for a fun tasting. This man may offend some but seriously, take it all in fun and enjoy the experience. We loved his fruity Riesling and the port. We...More

Stopped here for a quick visit on our way through Clare, the homestead and surrounds are just gorgeous. Lots of character and the wines were lovely.

Had a great time sampling some of their wines which were all first class. Informative staff with an in-depth knowledge of the estate grown wines. Also for sale are some beautiful Riedel glasses individually marked for him and her. I can’t put the engraved names...More
