24 March 2020 – supersedes update from 19 March 2020

It’s a new week with new rules, and we hope that you are doing ok in this changing environment.

Whilst Cellar Door is no longer able to open for wine tastings, wine experiences or dining, we are still able to meet you out the front of the building for takeaway wine sales. At this point in time, think of us as your friendly Elderton bottle-o!

Takeaway wine sales are available from 10am – 5pm on weekdays and 11am – 4pm on weekends. You can pre-order and pay over the phone for collection from our carpark – phone 08 8568 7878 – or make your decisions when you arrive and pay by card (no cash sales). Our amazing staff are still on deck to answer questions about our wines and help find the best wine for you, even if you can’t taste the range.

Our online shop is always open, and members receive free delivery around Australia for orders over $150. We are stocked with wine and ready to ship it to your door!

Whilst we are needing to practise social distancing, let’s not isolate ourselves in the broader sense. It is going to be even more important to call people, check in with your friends and family, maintain conversations and community. Feel free to message us on social media, share stories of the wines you are enjoying at home, email or call us. We are still operating our small, family business and are here to chat wine, with you, our Elderton community.

A note re deliveries: Australia Post have advised that all parcels – be it at a Post Office or at a residence – will no longer require a signature for delivery or collection. If you would like to have your parcel left at your address if you are not there, rather than needing to go to the post office to collect it, at the checkout please tick the box that you give authority for the delivery to be left and provide the instructions for the location eg under side verandah.
