  • MORE THEN JUST WINE TASTING.

    The Poplars Cellar door , also known as Chardonnay Lodge, is one of the best winery we found. It not only offered wine tasting but also a restaurant, cafe, cheese tasting, tours and a gallery.

  • Things to do?? Drink wine!

    You are pretty limited in what you can do in Coonawarra -- eat and drink. Sip wines at the cellar doors, eat at beautiful restaurants and enjoy the scenery and views.There are sooo many cellar doors along the road, that I am only going to mention a few, and they are ones that I either love the wine, love the service or love the surrounds.

  • Rymil Winery

    This is a rather grand and expensive looking winery, a little out of the way if anything. But it is worth the extra bit of driving. It is set back off the road amongst the wines, a double story building with viewing platforms. Also boasting a statue of 'rampant stallions' which reportedly cost $260 000. But the best bit is their wines. Very good...

    If all in your party are wine buffs, then you will be stuck working out who is going to drive. I would suggest a mini bus. I found this company on line, I have however never used them so cannot personally recommend them. Just a suggestions.

Coonawarra Warnings and Dangers

  • alisonr's Profile Photo

    by alisonr Written Nov 27, 2005

    When you are cruising around tasting all the wines the region has to have on offer, there are a couple of traffic related warnings. Firstly, dont drink and drive. Get someone to drive you around. Better yet, hire a mini bus and get them to drive you and your group around.
    The second is, if you are driving, when you pull out onto the main road, be aware it is a 100km hour zone of a major road. Dont dawdel!
