Star Cellar Door
Driving up to the inviting cellar door, one can easily imagine Matthew Barry (second-generation owner and winemaker) sitting under a tree, a glass of wine in hand, enjoying the serenity the region has to offer. Mount Avoca has built a reputation of making enjoyable, everyday wines. With its pioneering certified organic vineyards, the estate emphasises sustainable practices across all parts of the business. This extends to the on-site ‘Eco-Luxe’ fully equipped accommodation, with breathtaking views of the property. After trying the extensive tasting line-up at the cellar door, it’s very tempting to stay for a game of pétanque or two.
