Somerled Cellar Bar


In 1969, Rob secured employment under Max Schubert, the renowned father of Grange, at Penfolds. Presently, Rob, accompanied by his family members Heather, Lucy, and Emma, presides over an elegant, surprising, and creatively distinct wine sanctuary nestled in the Adelaide Hills. This establishment sets itself apart from all others in its uniqueness.

Functioning as both a cellar door and a wine bar, Somerled welcomes visitors with its warm hospitality. Their weekly blog takes center stage on the website, offering valuable insights for interested patrons.

Rob’s selection showcases gracefully refined sparkling wines and whites that harmoniously contrast with the complexity of his matured aged reds. Notably, The Advertiser lauds Somerled’s shirazes as being comparable to the esteemed Grange.

Guests are invited to relax and indulge in wine tasting by the half glass or glass, accompanied by an abundance of delectable nibbles, including warm cheese puffs, French toasties, warm anchovy sticks, and signature Spanish platters.

Upcoming intimate tasting events, thoughtfully hosted by Rob himself, are promptly listed on the website, providing an exceptional opportunity for enthusiasts to acquaint themselves with this esteemed brand.

To discover the origin of the name “Somerled,” one must pay a visit, enjoy the convivial atmosphere at the bar, and savor delightful libations in the company of Rob’s welcoming family.
