We had some time to kill in Adelaide and travelled down to see one of our favourite wine makers. Lucky enough to be run through the wines by the daughter of Sparky and Sarah. Try it !!

Having drunk Molly Dooker wine over the years it was great to be able to visit its home. The tasting table was laid out and so you moved clockwise round it from the white to the more powerful reds. 2 Left Feet our favourite remained so after the tasting. Knowledgeable staff too.

Hi Polly, thanks for popping into our cellar door! Two Left Feet is a consistent favorite of mine as well, but the 2016 is particularly great. We hope to see you at the cellar door again soon. Cheers, Jess @ Mollydooker Wines More

Got hooked on Mollydooker's Boxer Shiraz at home. Had to visit when staying in Adelaide/McLaren Vale. Total vindication. The tour was good (thanks Mandy). The tasting was beautifully handled (thanks Lisa and Mandy). The Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz blew us away. Top reputation utterly justified.

I had determined while visiting South Australia to visit only wineries I had never heard of; I don't see much point in travelling long distances to taste wines that I can buy at my local. And I pretty much chose wineries at random - sniffing, sipping and spitting (tragic, I know) my way around the Barossa and McLaren Vale. So... More

Ten of us enjoyed the wines and the staff were informative and passionate about Mollydooker. There are great art work throughout to draw you into this place. The views are stunning and the wine is not too bad either.

We traveled to Adelaide just so my wife could come here. Upon my arrival to Australia, I found that I loved a good jammy shiraz. This place is the mecca of big, jammy shiraz. So many of their wines were so incredibly good and they just got better as you went higher in to their stocks. We decided to buy... More
