Cradle of Hills Winery


Cradle of Hills winery is a ‘hidden gem’! A small-batch, sustainably-managed, artisan winery nestled in the beautiful McLaren Vale hills.

Cradle of Hills has a 5-star ranking with James Halliday and produces only 800 cases of wine pa, which are keenly sought by wine-lovers visiting us and via our small members’ club.

Award-winning winemaker Paul Smith offers assisted tastings of his white, rosè and red wines, by appointment only.
