What better place to celebrate the easing restrictions on cellar doors than a winery with so much variety to offer?
From exquisitely curated long lunches to a picnic day with the family where you can get lost in a real-life conifer maze, Maxwell Wines is well worth the mini-road trip and a great spot to enjoy all that the Fleurieu Peninsula has to offer.
Enjoy an overdue long lunch, complete with views to die for and Insta-worthy dishes. Every dish is carefully planned and presented for you to enjoy with views of the winery cellar, vineyards, and the Fleurieu Peninsula’s rolling hills.
The latest menu from Chef Fabian Lehmann seeks to hero the sensational produce born from our beautiful state and to support our important producers who are doing it tough through these COVID times.
The South Australia Showcase Menu is offered only on weekends with sittings available at 12pm and 2:30pm on Saturday and Sunday (subject to availability). Book ahead to avoid missing out.
It’s $90pp for a four-course tasting menu or $130pp with wine pairings.
A great way for kids of any age to have fun, the Maxwell maze is the perfect little family escape. With wine and cheese boards available from the cellar door, you can relax with a bottle in the picnic grounds while the kids explore the maze.
You are also welcome to bring your own food consumption in the picnic area only, although any wine or drinks consumed must be Maxwell-made.
The Maxwell maze and picnic grounds are open from 10am to 5pm daily for $5pp or free with any purchases from cellar door.
Due to restrictions, the Maxwell maze and picnic grounds must be booked in advance. Please email [email protected] or call the winery on 08 8323 8200.
This winery tour is a bit of a throwback for anyone who enjoyed completing the Yellow Brick Road as part of the Royal Adelaide Show.
The tour will take you through the Maxwell Wines cellar door, vineyards, beehives, lime cave, and maze — but before you start, you’ll be given an empty produce bag that you’ll fill as you go!
As you make your way across the beautiful Maxwell grounds, keep an eye out for produce you can take home, from honey to mushrooms to, of course, wine.
The tour with a twist is $150 per couple and the price includes the tour itself, plus over $150 worth of wine and produce you’ll pick up as you go.
These tours are available all week (subject to availability) from 10am to 3pm. For more information or to book, click here.
