McGuigan has gone by several different names including Chateau Yaldara. It is set in a huge mansion which once had many paintings. The service was good and the wines were good depending on what name the place went under.

One needs to remember that McGuigans, or Australian Wine Vintners (AVW) as they're known on the Aus Stock Exchange, is an Aussie wide Company. Their Barossa Reds are superb, particularly at the upper end of their price range. I'm talking more than $20 cellar door....More
