Awesome wines. Once you taste them you will want a glass then a bottle. Great customer service. And fantastic views over the barossa!

We have been past here a number of times when we're going to the Menglers Hill lookout. Shocking weather for lookouts today, so the perfect excuse to drop in. Met with a smile and a very knowledgable preamble, we tasted most of the card and walked out with a few of our favourites. Thanks for the experience.

We didn't plan to stop here. We saw the winery. We drove past. There were protests in the back of the car. We did a u turn. How glad are we that we did. A very welcoming winery, with knowledgable staff who knew their wines. But it was the wines themselves. Easy drinkers. Get the glass. Drink now. Beautiful. I'd... More

Loved going here, the wine was good, great service, and the platter for lunch was good too. Especially when it was Easter Saturday and they were busy. You have to come here and try it for yourself.

On top of the hill overlooking the township, Bethany wines is a family affair, built in an old quarry. The proprietors are justifiably proud of their offerings and had no problem freighting our purchases back to regional NSW. Well worth a visit.

The tasting area here is quite small so we were quite disappointed when a bus load of 10 people just wandered in without a booking. We hadn't started our tasting yet so just walked straight out after the winery staff said they could stay (other wineries require a booking and turn people away if they haven't made one). We usually... More

Thank you for your feedback. As you say we do have a smaller area for tasting and in recognition of this we do require bus groups to book in for tasting. The tour operators we work with are very considerate with booking ahead, however there is the occasionally 'unannounced' tour. These groups can be quite difficult to turn away; often... More

We stopped in here for a light lunch which consisted of a platter of meats, cheeses and other goodies. We accompanied this with a bottle of wine. What a delightful way to spend a few hours overlooking the vines eating nice food and tasting lovely wine.

Was introduced to Bethany Wines many moons ago by a friend in melbourne. Since I was in the neighbourhood thought I would pop in to have a look. Glad I did. Loved the service. My personal favorite was the picnic platters that you could purchase to enjoy with your wine while enjoying the great scenery.
