The courtyard and lawn are the perfect places to spend a relaxing afternoon coming together with friends or celebrating a milestone. Our pantry is fully stocked and you're welcome to design your own picnic basket to enjoy with a bottle of wine.
We love cooking with fire and friends and then pairing all of this with our wines. We will host regular asados – our take on the famous Argentinian cookout – in our courtyard. Watch this space for more information.
We’re not able to host large events or weddings, but if you are looking for a beautiful venue for smaller, intimate lunches or dinners please contact us for details and options.

Masterclass - Grenache of the World
Sat 29th Apr 2023 at 7:00 PM
South Australian grenache hit its stride during the past decade. McLaren Vale and the Barossa are our leading local sources, with the best wineries producing modern, elegant styles with restrained levels of alcohol. Further afield Spain and France continue to star. Let's take a tour.
Discover grenache at its most impressive alongside a trio of winemakers helping elevate its South Australian standing.
Skye Salter and Charlie Seppelt launched their McLaren Vale label Paralian after a combined 46 vintages around the world. Historic Blewitt Springs vineyards are the source of their grenache, which is refined and perfumed yet still powerful.
The Barossa's Alkina is home base for Amelia Nolan. There she focuses on distinct terroirs across the property, working with their nuances to craft grenache that is supple and spicy but never excessive.
Sydney-based wine importer Lachlan Barber will also join this Tasting Australia masterclass. He leads the team at Alimentaria, a business specialising in artisanal Spanish produce and wine.
Selections from Yalumba, Jauma, Spinifex, Thistledown, Uvas de la Ira and Commando G are set to feature alongside Paralian and Alkina grenache.
Masterclass - The New Barossa
Sat 6th May 2023 at 7:00 PM
Old vineyards, new energy. This is the Barossa 2.0: modern, exciting, coveted.
Wine and drinks writer Mike Bennie will welcome Tasting Australia drinks curator Meira Harel, plus two leading local winemakers, for a masterclass celebrating all that's fresh from this world-class region. Amelia Nolan and Callum Powell are changing the game, opting for less oak, less alcohol and more floral expressions of the Barossa. These are wines capturing South Australia's heart and soul - entirely of the moment and impressive at every turn.
Nolan is managing director of Greenock's Alkina, an organic and biodynamic vineyard focused on expressing the nuances of its ancient soils. Artisanal craft and cutting-edge technology both have their place here; the resulting wines are elegant and delicate.
Winemaking is a family tradition for Powell. His father, David, steered Torbreck to success before the pair began making wines under their Powell & Son banner. This next-gen star then founded Agricola Vintners, with its range of lower alcohol Shiraz quickly turning heads.
Harel, meanwhile, is a wine and restaurant professional who has managed top Australian venues including The Town Mouse and Daylesford's famed Lake House. Recognised as a leading national beverage authority, Harel relocated to Adelaide in 2019 and is today general manager of the reinvigorated Press Food and Wine, along with Peel Street Restaurant and Leigh Street Wine Room.
Wines from the Barossa's Sami Odi, Shobbrook, Rasa and Riley Harrison are also set to feature during this evening masterclass. Experience a region reimagined.
