Golden times and chill vibes return for popular SA cellar door Down The Rabbit Hole

Get ready for the ultimate end-of-week celebration at Down The Rabbit Hole with the return of their Golden Times Friday, a great way to relax and unwind.

We’re lucky to have a lot of great wineries and Cellar Doors in SA, but Down the Rabbit Hole is definitely one of the most unique locations on that list. After finishing some renovations last year, now is the perfect time to pay this picturesque destination a visit.

Down The Rabbit Hole is a winery with style, determined to make the most of its rolling McLaren Vale location. With a great combination of warm summery days and cool evening breezes, an evening here is a great way to unwind and relax. Of course, one of the defining features is their converted double-decker bus that functions as a cellar door.

On the topic of evening relaxation, there isn’t a better time to schedule a Friday night at Down The Rabbit Hole. They have just announced the return of their ‘Golden Times’, a weekly event on Friday nights. Roll out a picnic blanket and relax in the last golden rays of sunshine to the sound of live music, with food and wine to enjoy as well. The first Golden Times Friday is set for October 7, with a guest performance from WA guitarist Michael Dunstan.  

The winery is owned by couple Dominic Palumbo and Elise Cook, backed by an enthusiastic and passionate team. The couple have a mission when it comes to winemaking. In their own words, “We believe that a truly great bottle of wine, shared with friends and lovers, has the ability to transform a seemingly ordinary day or evening into something pretty special”.

They commit to this ideal, with award-winning head winemaker Walter Clappis on their team. Each bottle carries an additional personal touch, with hand-sketched labels representing different lines. Not only that, but on the back of every bottle is a poem. This combines to a very personal, almost intimate experience for guests. It’s no wonder Down The Rabbit Hole is so popular with family, couples, and close friends. 

With the return of Golden Times at DTRH, now is the perfect time to go with some friends (or a date) for a relaxing night out, enjoying the golden rays of sun in one of SA’s most picturesque wineries. 

Down The Rabbit Hole Wines is located at 233 Binney Rd, McLaren Vale.
