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 11:00am 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.

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.
