Langhorne Creek

The cellar doors of Langhorne Creek represent creative winemakers and viticulturists who grab our attention with stunning wines that contribute to the broad tapestry of incredible offerings from the state. The warm, maritime climate and fertile soils produce outstanding cabernet sauvignon, shiraz, and malbec, along with a splattering of alternative varieties such as fiano, barbera, tempranillo, and verdelho. The rural hospitality brimming with friendliness and the easy accessibility to cellar doors make this region an attractive trip from Adelaide.

Bremerton Wines’ cellar door is all that you could wish for. Now a pleasing combination of old and new, early this year, a modern tasting room was added to the one housed in the old barn built in 1866. Both buildings now serve as tasting rooms for premium wines and spirits, and there are impressive eating areas in the barn and outdoors. Sisters Lucy Willson, general manager, and Rebecca Willson, chief winemaker, run the show. There are four wine flights on offer and one for the winery’s gin – all matched with local produce. Some of Australia’s best-known artists have contributed to a barrel bottom exhibition and local delicacies are available for purchase. Family heritage and sense of community run throughout their cellar door, as does care for the environment: their carpark has two Tesla charging connectors. It’s worth keeping in mind that around a third of the wines for sale are available at cellar door only. PAULA ROSE CASTRONOVA
