In a recently renovated 19th century stone cottage sits McLaren Vale’s latest communal cellar door, housing three glorious boutique wine labels; Lino Ramble, Sherrah Wines and Bondar Wines.

Angela Townsend and Andy Coppard, long-time friends and business partners, are the minds behind Lino Ramble. They were the first to settle in to gorgeous cottage, and now it’s officially home to two other low intervention wine labels.

The cellar door, which can be found at 148 McMurtie Road, also just happens to be called, 148 McMurtie Road.

Don’t let the simple name of this cellar door fool you, as the wines hidden inside are anything but.

Each wine label has a separate room for their brand, with a different aesthetic for each. It’s basically a whimisical house party every day of the week.

Lino Ramble’s grape varieties are chosen based on sustainability, intrigue, and, of course, drinkability.

“Guests visiting the region are used to seeing big bold reds, like Shiraz, whereas we are doing something a little bit different,” explains Andy.

Lino Ramble work with biodynamic farmers and producers to help make their natural (and sustainable as possible) wines.

Sherrah Wines has unique and distinctive small-batch wines. Owned and made by Alex and Liz Sherrah, the wines are made in favour of McLaren Vales ideal growing conditions.

Bondar Wines owners, Andre Bondar and Selina Kelly, make light, bright and structured wines, using grapes sourced from McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills.

At this stage, the cellar door is only offering tastings due to capacity restrictions. 

Bookings are essentials to secure your place. The cellar door is open for groups of six or less, per room, with tastings sessions held every hour for 45 minutes.
