About Church Road Experiences and Tastings
The Cellar Door offers a range of activities for you to discover and experience Church Road, our wines and our 120-year-old history.
A variety of tastings are available giving guests the opportunity to explore our whole portfolio of wines including Cellar Door exclusive products and the prestigious TOM range.
We operate two experiences daily, our morning Versatility of the Grape Experience at 11:30am and the afternoon Legacy and Winery Experience at 3:00pm.
The Versatility of the Grape Experience ($70pp) is your opportunity to discover the passion and innovation of our winemaking team. With glass in hand, sample multiple ways that we are using grapes for more than just the production of wine. From pressed juice to balsamic vinegar and barrel aged spirit, enjoy an informative behind the scenes look at our world of wine and the adaptability of this versatile fruit. Your experience concludes with a guided tasting of our award winning range of wines and runs for approximately 1.5 hours.
In the afternoon we host our Legacy and Winery Experience. Immerse yourself in the past, present and future of Church Road and learn more about our winemaking philosophy. Sample some of our pre-release wines, enjoy the barrel halls, caves and historical underground museum finishing with an in depth wine tasting. This experience runs for approximately 1 hour.
I learnt so much during this tour and it was really interesting to go behind the scenes and see the barrels maturing and visit the museum. Our tour guide Hine was just fantastic and was able to answer all our questions. The fact that you do wine tasting on top of this really is great value for money!
The staff is nice and friendly.
Our guide "Denise" was fantastic!
We 4 had the most wonderful afternoon at Church Road Winey at the wine tasting experience
Wonderful and very informative tour.
Best thing i ever did in 2019😊
Our international students really enjoyed their wine-tasting experience and Becks did a great job presenting the different wines and responding to questions.
Will be back in February to do the longer morning tour with friends.
We all enjoyed the cellar door experience immensely. It was so informative - the history of Church Road is so important to the region. The tour was also fascinating. The people friendly and we have already been recommending you.
