I keep coming back to this place and the experience improves each time. A relatively recent winery in South Australian standards, however the Italian influence certainly shows through with the wines on offer. A surprise is the Vermintino which is a new style for Australia. this white is perfect for the hot Australian summer, being light and refreshing. I did... More

Great venue, great staff, great food. Would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a wedding location. We wouldn't have changed a thing!! Can't wait to go back for our first year anniversary. No other place could match or beat their package!!

All the ingredients for an amazing day were there. The wedding ceremony was held in the shade of a magnificent old gum tree with a backdop of the lake filled with ducks. A most beautiful and romantic setting. Then there was the Wedding Reception. I don't really know what to say except it was amazing. Staff can make or break... More

We last stayed there 2 or 3 years ago, and decided it was time to go back. The motel rooms are starting to get a bit dated but noted that they were renovating them one at a time, so no problems there...Clean and tidy, with excellent daily room service which could not be faulted. The restaurant is fine dining and... More

Visited McLarenvale with friends. Booked package with Serafino which included breakfast and evening dinner for two. Very spacious rooms and well appointed. Grounds are magnificent, as is winery and the resort area. Management extremely friendly and informative. Meal was excellent. Highly recommended

Recently stayed as a wedding reception we attended was held there. Our room was large but very impersonal. Had just been painted and had very strong smell of paint, which was worse once the heating was turned on. No exhaust fan in bathroom so had to put window up which meant passersby could see in. For the money, we found... More

Less welcoming than a slap in the face with a cold salmon.. Although we did appreciate the rosè, we were told nothing of the wines we were tasting. Not impressed, especially as this winery has a big reputation.
