FIRST LOOK: CRFT Wines new-look tasting room will have you feeling right at home

Located in the Adelaide Hills, the newly renovated tasting room at CRFT Wines is more open and spacious but still just as welcoming.

Taking on any sort of renovation is no mean feat but shutting the doors to your business and completing the task at hand all within three weeks is darn near impossible – but that’s exactly what Candice Helbig and Frewin Ries did.

The owners of CRFT Wines have recently reopened their Adelaide Hills cellar door, after closing for two weeks to undergo a small-scale renovation on the internal fit-out of their beloved tasting room.

“We predominately did the reno to create more space,” explains Candice. “The room is now more open, light and bright which better represents us and our wines. We’ve always had a relaxed, friendly tasting experience so the space had to reflect that.”

The comfortable feel of the tasting room is an intentional décor choice by Candice and Frewin, designed to help guests envision themselves in their own homes.

“We wanted to make it homey so guests can envision themselves drinking wine in their own space and what it might be like sitting in their own lounge room enjoying a glass after a long day,” says Candice.

Upon entering the tasting room, you would be forgiven for thinking that you have, in fact, walked into someone’s home. Tables of varying heights fill the space, with natural light flooding in from the floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the property’s organic vineyards. But it’s the cosy couch area in front of the newly installed stone fireplace that really ties it all together.

And while the interior may look different, the atmosphere remains the same. “It’s the same vibe, same staff, same wine – there’s just more space now! Being able to welcome visitors into our home vineyard has always been so important to us and we can’t wait to share this next step with everyone.”  

Music from the vinyl record player perfectly accompanies any tasting experience at CRFT which offers tasting flights with wine also available by the glass or bottle.

Awarded a five-star rating in the recent 2023 Halliday Wine Companion Awards, CRFT Wines is a must-visit destination and with an all-new look, there’s never been a better time.
