Star Cellar Door & Best Food
The folks at d’Arenberg have put together one of Australia’s finest destination cellar doors, and for that they must be applauded.
The d’Arenberg Cube is a wondrous thing: a head-spinning, five-story marvel that includes all manner of immersive experiences to teach you about wine and have fun in the process. It is arty, quirky and wacky, and there is nothing like it at any other winery in Australia.
The tasting room on the top level of the Cube is where you want to head to get stuck into the impressive portfolio, while if food is your thing, d’Arenberg offers a few options, from casual to something a bit more upmarket yet effortlessly cool. Meanwhile, the d’Arenberg Cube Restaurant offers a degustation menu that will blow your mind. It’s like a wonderland. DAVID BROOKES
