Category: Winery

How lucky are we to live in the wine capital of Australia? We have so many beautiful wine regions here in SA that deliver stunning views, fresh local produce, friendly staff & of course, amazing wines! In a move that we are truly thankful for, the wine industry has shifted in recent years to become more & more family friendly. There are tons of kid friendly wineries across McLaren Vale, Clare, the Barossa, Langhorne Creek, Adelaide Hills & all over where kids & families are welcomed into the cellar doors. Some have playgrounds, or giant games, some dish out colouring books & some even have their own “kids tasting flights” of juice, milk & biscuits. How fun! So when you are planning your next regional getaway or catch up with friends, don’t leave the kids at home, take them to one of these family friendly wineries or cellar doors & enjoy!

Vintage Chef Co, Barossa Valley

Just take a moment to check out the breathtaking location for this equally as breathtaking place to take your family out for a meal.

So what exactly is it that makes Vintage Chef Co so damn good? Read on! Lets start with the...

Barristers Block is officially my favourite winery to go with kids. I’ve been to a number of recommended wineries from the Barossa to McLaren Vale and this has gone straight to the top of the list! Situated in Woodside in the Adelaide Hills, I recently took my English relatives to Barristers Block for lunch during a day in the hills and it didn’t miss a beat. Barristers Block is a lovely winery on the main street in Woodside, just...

Harvest Kitchen – Barossa

Harvest Kitchen can be found at the top of Magnolia Rd, just outside the township of Tanunda, and partners with Calabria Family Wines Barossa who’s tasting room sits under the same roof. (You may know it as Artisans of Barossa). We had high expectations after hearing so much about this place – including rave reviews on the food AND that it was extremely family friendly. Fair to say our expectations of both were blown out of the...

Swell Brewing Co, McLaren Vale

Sometimes wineries are not for every one, and with a quality craft offering like Swell Brewing Co in the region, why wouldn’t you mix it up a bit? I’d like to say it kept my husband happy, and it did, but actually I’d call myself a bit of a beer diva, so it ticked my boxes too. Hang on…..but a brewery and kids? Fear not…….this place is perfect. So many options for a tasting paddle First impression arriving at...

Serafino Wines

I cannot believe we haven’t been to Serafino for lunch before, but now we have been once we will definitely be back! Serafino is a wonderful place for a celebratory lunch – the day we visited there were a couple of big birthdays and I can see why it’s the restaurant of choice for such occasions. They have married fine-dining, with brilliant wines, and the kind of grounds that every child dreams of. Oh and did I mention they...

McCarthys Orchard, McLaren Vale

Walking up the driveway to McCarthys Orchard was like walking into the cellar door of my grown-up dreams crossed with the farm of my childhood dreams (and Gem’s). The pony in the paddock, Bob, along with the three donkeys Feta, Olive and Angel caught Gem’s eye and she was off. One of the donkeys let out a big ‘eeeee-oooorrr’ and Gem popped her fingers in her ears and laughed. It was the beginning of the loveliest Sunday afternoon. The animals...

Woodstock Winery

Woodstock winery has me almost lost for words and that is rare. This place is a dream for kids and adults alike. Firstly it’s pretty big, there is loads of space and you really feel like you’re in the country which we loved. The big old trees are really special and make the whole place feel quite magical.  We arrived in time to do the kangaroo feeding which happens around 11.30 and it’s just the sweetest thing. The winery has a roo...

This winery goes by two names. The wines are called Fork in the Road wines and the venue as such is called Old Oval Estate and it’s the sweetest family run winery.
