Coonawarra is recognised as Australia's premium Bordeaux-style wine producing region. It has the advantages of good, well drained soil, reliable underground water and a medium-cool ripening season - all factors that assist in producing great Cabernet Sauvignon.
Coonawarra is 20kms long and 2kms wide, with over 25 cellar doors. Most people find it a bit difficult to choose which ones to visit - let alone drive after visiting them!
For this reason Coonawarra offers various types of wine tours. The most inexpensive and one of the best is the Wineries Walking Trail
The Wineries Walking Trail Shuttle Service
The five wineries on the trail are all open seven days a week and the eateries as advertised. You will be warmly welcomed at all of them for tastings or refreshments. You start at Redmans, walk to Brands Laira, have a bite of lunch at Otelia or the General Store, on to Wynns, try Digiorios and finish at Zemas. The best news is the price - FREE (except for lunch of course)!
Coonawarra Bush Holiday Staff will drop you off at 12.00 and pick you up at 5.00pm. The total cost is only $15 per person, with no maximum numbers (We will take several loads in the BMW X5 as necessary).
Don't risk your license, and relax and enjoy your day! Use the CBHP Shuttle Service (guests only).
$15 per person
To book, just tell the park management when you arrive.
NB:Must be on at least a two night stay due to check in and check out times.
Coonawarra Custom Wine Tours
The Park puts together tours for up to 4 persons most days. For your choice of cellar doors, including lunch or dinner, full day or half day. As a Coonawarra vigneron, with our own wine label (The Hundred of Comaum) in your room, we are more than happy to tailor a tour to suit your group. Larger groups can be arranged via Coonawarra Discovery.
Choose your favourite wineries from the Coonawarra website, tell us when you want to go, what you want to eat and how many are going - thats it, done! We will organise everything and entertain and guide you through the region that has been our home for over 10 years.
We can take you to wineries that are not on the CVA list, we can organise winery tours and full access to working vineyards. We can show you real harvesting and crushing during vintage and tank tastings all year round - where other tours simply do not have access.
The above picture is our next door neighbour's winery - we will take you through it, showing you how it works. We will tour the vineyard around it, showing you the different varierties. Go with the real thing, not just a tourist business - use vignerons to really understand Coonawarra!
We also provide Mandarin Speaking tour guides for the above wine tours (Weekend and Public Holidays Only). Please check out the Chinese travelling guide for Coonawarra region.
