Barossa Cellar Door
Cellar Door visitation from our interstate and overseas Commanders and Eldertonians has certainly been hampered this year and our planned celebrations for 40 vintages have had to be postponed. However, we are looking to celerate 40+1 next year, so keep your eyes peeled for those details as they come to fruition in 2022.
If you haven’t had a chance to visit this year, we hope you will be able to soon. We have some new experiences, and of course our popular ‘old’ experiences, for you to enjoy. We’ve also done some rearranging our furniture and now have more seating (including the comfiest couch) so if you prefer you can enjoy a seated tasting, rather than needing to stand at the bar!
We are proud to share the following achievements this year:
We have been named finalists in the South Australian Best of Wine Tourism Awards for the fourth year in a row. We won the Wine Tourism Services category in 2018 and are hoping to do so again this year. The winner will be announced later this month.
We were included in The Australian/Vogue Living article ’10 of the best adventures to embark on in Australia’ in May. This outlined a day trip with luxury tour operator Coast & Co, with whom we partner to provide a first-class tasting experience to visitors. For more details on this day trip, contact Jodhi at Cellar Door.
