Ever wanted to experience a wine tour inside a wine barrel? Well, we haven’t really ever thought you could, but now you can.
Overlooking the stunning surrounds of Port Lincoln and Boston Bay, the Peter Teakle Cellar Door is set to open its doors to the public this Saturday 5 December.
The 3-million-dollar bespoke venue designed by local architect, Kym Clarke, mimics the shape of a wine barrel and features more than three kilometres of timber work, bending structural steel to create the iconic curved roof and handcrafted stone elements.
Nestled in the heart of the vineyard is the Peter Teakle Cellar Door which has a 50-person capacity and will offer guided tasting experiences led by head winemaker, Liz Heidenreich.
The incredible tastings will be paired with locally sourced Eyre Peninsula charcuterie boards and cheese platters, created by Line and Label chef, Jonathan Sweet.
Following the launch of his fine-dining restaurant, Line and Label, owner Peter Teakle further expanded the business by installing Eyre Peninsula’s first multi-million-dollar, 100-tonne crush facility in 2019.
“The priority was always the completion of the processing plant so that our grapes could be crushed and processed on-site,” says Teakle.
Once that project was completed, and with Line and Label closed due to Covid-19 restrictions, the team at Peter Teakle Wines shifted their focus towards the build of the state-of-the-art cellar door.
Now it’s finally time to open its doors and welcome the local community and tourists alike back to Peter Teakle Wines to showcase their latest creation.
The opening of the new cellar door is just the beginning for Peter Teakle Wines with their award-winning Line and Label Restaurant also re-opening on January 8 2021.
With both venues embracing the paddock to plate food philosophy, Peter Teakle Wines offers Eyre Peninsula tourism the unique opportunity to taste some of the finest produce the seafood capital of Australia has to offer.
