Ekhidna Wines


In what has been described as the most authentic and enjoyable wine experience in McLaren Vale is the Ekhidna and Paper Eagle cellar door and kitchen … and be prepared for some pleasant surprises.

Irrepressible, ever laughing, talented winemaker owner Matt Rechner is almost always on hand answering questions, offering advice and fussing over his visitors. His many achievements include a trophy for Australia’s Best Shiraz.

This cellar door only offers tastings of Matt’s excellent handcrafted wines but adds tastings of sensational handmade beers including his unique highly sought after Ekhidna Ginger Beer.

Completing the taste experience is the Ekhidna kitchen full of talent, turning out beautiful Tapas and a la carte meals. Ekhidna Kitchen has an enviable high reputation amongst locals which is a sure sign of a consistent quality offering.

Matt and his super friendly staff will make your Vale visit a highlight … hope to see you soon.
