Carved into a limestone hill in the heart of McLaren Vale and etched into its history is a tribute to one man’s vision and tenacity: a winery, a fine-dining restaurant and fully certified sustainable vineyard of historic vines. From the moment he first discovered this site in 1979, Mark Maxwell has put his heart and soul into every facet, growing the vines and making the wine to crafting memorable tourism experiences all in his own inimitable style and to his own unbending standards.
Few cellar doors give such a holistic wine experience, perched atop the winery, from the cellar door you have a window into its soul. Through a personally guided wine flight, discover the nuances brought about by time, terroir and talent over a tasting plate accompanied by the scents and sounds of the winery directly below the tasting room with views out over the signature estate vineyards.
