Adelaide hill wine, coffee, rock climing, art

October 2019 catch up

Wine -
Our wines are boutique and available only at the cellar door. 7 different varietals grow on this property, we are primarily a vineyard. This is an Adelaide Hills Wine Region vineyard. So our grapes - everything we grow is influenced by our altitude 13,000 ft above sea level.  We are in a cool climate zone - it often surprises folk when they arrive, how much cooler it is up here on the hill. Summer time - consider sitting under a shady tree in our garden with a glass of wine. 

Wine tasting

Please book well in advance for our personalized wine taste –
This is followed by a glass of your favorite wine and a platter which can be enjoyed in our garden.  Platter with double brie, Danish blue and cheddar cheese, ham, 2dips  almonds, seasonal fruit, rustic bread and crackers - a snack for 2 people to share.The produce is fresh and purchased locally before we open.

If you have a bigger group just let us know – Our larger platters are suitable for 10 people.
again book in advance so we can accommodate you. 

There is a small pp fee for even larger groups who would like to stay for the day. In this case consider booking one of  the very excellent caterers who have been here to feed your group – anything from gourmet to simple fare - we can guide you with this.  (Using our wine on the day is a must  - we are licenced)

Well actually….maybe one or two. -  We’ve got two more products to add to the list. Say hello to Socks and Comforters!!

Location Location

Being in the center of the Fleurieu Peninsula Magpie Springs is a great meeting place for folk to get together .....we have found this time and again. Not far from Mclarenvale yet still in the Adelaide Hills. Half way to Victor Harbor -  Magpie Springs is geographically the central spot for people coming from Adelaide catching up with anyone in the Fleurieu.  Handy - Fri Sat Sun 11 - 5

Remember this is a vineyard - our onsite shop sells wine

Let us know in advance if you would like platters its always  fresh so we need to go shopping on the day.
If you have a large group perhaps one of the very excellent caterers we have on our list can help you plan an occasion.

We are into wedding season, many couples have choosen us as their special spot. All of them have been completely unique as the couples have designed the day themselves.
Recently we were nominated as a finalist in the Brides Choice awards and were placed with wineries this is a curious situation as our place is more unique. Our venue is far more intimate and probably would have had a better chance if placed with garden weddings or country weddings, ce la vie. Anyhow, we are into the next season and already we have seen 4 brides / grooms.

(A 10m x 12m marquee fits beautifuly on our front lawn)

Photographers too choose our location as it offers our unique backdrops for their couples.
Want to book our front lawn for a function contact us

please leave your phone number if emailing
