Iconic Goolwa Wine Bar unveils transformation plans and collaboration with SA producers

Treasured Goolwa Wine Bar, 90 Mile Wines and the Wharf Barrel Shed have announced big transformation plans, and exciting partnerships with SA producers.

Treasured Goolwa Wine Bar, 90 Mile Wines and the Wharf Barrel Shed have announced big transformation plans, and exciting partnerships with independent South Australian producers.

Currently located in Signal Point, the team have shared their hopes of a long-term lease renewal and exciting aesthetic changes to the inside and outside of the building, aiming to transform into a drawcard venue not only for locals in Goolwa, but for people from other towns in the district and beyond.

“We look forward to signing a new lease very soon, and then get cracking on implementing some aesthetic changes firstly to the inside of the building, and then the outside areas down the road,” the team shared in a Facebook post.

90 Mile Wines and the Wharf Barrel Shed, are located amongst the lively river port of Goolwa, but started out as a small family-owned wine business. Opening in 2009, they ran a small cellar door operation in seaside Middleton, with their very first wines originating from estate-grown varietals in Padthaway and McLaren Vale.

In 2014, the family saw an opportunity to relocate the cellar door to the famous Goolwa Wharf and decided to take the business in a new direction. Creating a venue that offered more than just wine tasting and sales – the Wharf Barrel Shed – quickly became a hit with locals and tourists alike for its unique mix of food, craft beer, wine (of course), events and live music, all with the confines of a rustic and heritage-listed wharf shed, located right on the water’s edge.

Now, ten years on, the team sees a vision for a more inner-city or urban-style wine bar, that draws on the reclaimed industrial feel with polished concrete, brick and timber finishes.

This transformation includes the partnership with The Pawn Wine Co, Shapeshifter Brewing Company and Heaps Good Spirits. Customers can experience their products in new ways such as tasting paddles or flights in this collaboration. This will enable tourists and locals alike, to taste the fantastic produce made all over the state, all in one place. This will be a celebration of local, independent and family-owned businesses.

The introduction of a new VIP program, daily specials and happy hours, and even a new name for the business are all to be announced soon and can be something customers should look forward to. The transition from the old Wharf Barrel Shed, into a new and improved venue everyone can enjoy.
