The concept and design of the building was the brainchild of Kevin Sobels and with the help of his friend Graham Walker, built the main structure. Construction commenced in late September 1993 and was officially opened in late June 1994.

All the log timber used in the construction is white mahogany and was sourced from high in the mountains near Ellalong and the centre-piece, 9.5 metres tall, was planted more as a feature than main roof support. The entrance doors are encased with copper and brass, the aluminium cast framed windows are from an unknown church, the plate glass in all the windows and the tasting bar came from the River Oaks Golf Club in Sydney after it was refurbished a few years ago. The internal roof is lined with CSR Weathertex shingles screw fixed to the batons and each other.

 

VISITING OUR CELLAR DOOR

The winery is open seven (7) days a week, from 10am to 4pm, and offers a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. Our spacious main cellar door area features a high ceiling, an abundance of natural light and comfortable seating that can be flexibly arranged to accommodate couples or small groups.

A covered verandah surrounds the cellar door and is a perfect way to enjoy an outdoor tasting in the fresh air, overlooking our gardens with their famous iceberg roses. 

Our BBQ and picnic facilities are free to use, if you are tasting and purchasing from cellar door, with booking priority going to our Wine Club members.

Right behind our main tasting room there is a cosy private tasting room for groups of up to ten people. This room can also be hired out for special events, or as a conference room.

If you are visiting us for a tasting – particularly if you are in a group – we would advise you to call ahead on 02 4998 7766 and make a booking. Saturdays can be especially busy and your booking can help us to manage our capacity to comply with social distancing criteria and ensure everybody is comfortable.

A $5 per head tasting fee applies and is redeemable on purchase of wine. Members and their guests taste for free.
