This is a lovely cellar door experience - the wines speak for themselves but like almost all in this region the warmth and generosity of the cellar door staff make you appreciate the Coonawarra region even more

We have been coming to Coonawarra for over 30 years and always stop at Katnook. These days the Tasting Room is easily the most stylish in the district. Michelle and her staff know their wines and provide friendly service.

Easily the best winery in Coonawarra. Excellent range of Shiraz and Cabernet. Prodigy and Caledonians were fantastic as always. Worth it.

Well worth a visit, you will definitely not leave without buying a bottle or two or three. The lady that met us was very friendly and informative, overall it was a lovely experience for someone from Ireland that wouldn't be at all knowledgeable on Wines.
