If the recent opening of Lot 100 wasn’t quite enough for you, then brace yourself, as just minutes down the road a new cellar down has opened at Murdoch Hill Vineyard and Winery.
Murdoch Hill is a family-run business that has been producing the good stuff since 1998. The winery is located just near Oakbank on picturesque farmlands in prime wine tasting territory, and brothers Michael and Andrew Downer have taken over the reigns. With a whole bunch of new cellar doors popping up all over the Hills region, they realised that now was the perfect time to welcome everyone inside to taste their award-winning wines and see what the fuss is all about.
So they’ve opened up a cellar door tasting room that can house up to fifty people. The open space room has been decked out Scandi Style, with a long wooden table complete with stools and overhanging lights. Or you can head outside to the timber deck and enjoy the rolling farmland views with wine in hand. They’re known for their excellent sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, shiraz and cabernet sauvignon, so just take your pick.
The brothers plan to completely get on board with the thriving Adelaide Hills scene, starting with this weekend’s Crush Festival. On Sunday January 27 they’ll be hosting an event from 11am-6pm featuring Africola chef Duncan Welgemoed plus there will be DJs providing some music to really set the scene.
So what are you waiting for? Grab your friends for a winery tour stopping at Murdoch Hill and all the favourites while you’re there.
Murdoch Hill is at 260 Mappinga Rd, Oakbank. Open Wednesday to Monday 11am-4pm.
