Very friendly team and some great wines to try. There is a dusty old cellar which is an interesting highlight - with a huge old bottle of Veuve Cliquot Ponsardin. You can get a platter of food (we didn’t but it looked great).

Established by an ex Ship's Captain this welcoming vineyard is well worth a visit. With some of the oldest vines in the Coonawarra, an unusual back story and an old dusty cellar great for photo opportunities what's not to like!

Had a great time tasting wine under the excellent guidance of Mel. We incidentally arrived in July, which meant we got to experience Cellar Dwellers. Would highly recommend the trip to Coonawarra and particularly to Brand's Laira!
