Meet Berg Herring Wines, the chapel turned cellar door selling small batch, premium, McLaren Vale wines, with a focus on emerging varieties.

McLaren Vale favourites Berg Herring first swung open the doors to their cellar door on Boxing Day in 2020 at the Vale’s Sellicks Beach. Owners Chloe Fitzgerald and Sam Dunlevy purchased the sandstone church back in 2015 and have put in many hours outside their usual wine industry jobs in slowly restoring and renovating the building into what is now their stunning, and popular cellar door space.

At the cellar door, you can enjoy a tasting of the Berg Herring range, which showcases some exciting alternative varieties in McLaren Vale.

Berg Herring Wines are just coming off the back of a major win after scoring Best Small Cellar Door in McLaren Vale at the 2021 Australia’s Best Cellar Door Awards.

The cellar door offers tastings at $10 per person, with the tasting fee redeemable on any bottle purchase. Wines are also available to enjoy at the cellar door by the glass or bottle.

Bookings are not essential however Chloe and Sam recommend notification for groups of six or more, and can accommodate tastings in groups of ten or less. 

A visit to Berg Herring Wines is the perfect excuse for a weekend drive to McLaren Vale to explore the fabulous wine region.

You can find Berg Herring Wines full range of products here.
