This summer, ditch the crowds and embark on a delicious adventure hidden away in the beautiful countryside.
Summertime is all about making memories with the people you love, and what better way to do that than with a visit to a charming cellar door in the Langhorne Creek Wine Region? If you ask us, Kimbolton Wines is one that’s worth planning your whole day around.
Wine tastings on the rooftop, picnics, behind-the-scenes pairings, and food trucks, it’s no wonder this cellar door was voted South Australia’s BEST in tourism for 2022! Whether you’re a loved-up couple, a group of friends, or a fun-loving family, this cellar door has something for everyone.
So, grab your friends and family and head out on a wine-fuelled adventure.
Imagine sipping on delicious wine flights while comparing the different varieties, aromas, and flavours of Kimbolton’s award-winning traditional and Mediterranean varieties (like Fiano, Malbec, and Montepulciano Rosé).
Or indulging in the harmonious sensory experience of their seasonal wine and cheese pairings, working your way from light to bolder artisan flavours that complement or contrast the wines.
And to top it off, you can enjoy a regionally inspired picnic on the rooftop for two, surrounded by a delicious spread of food in a local grazing box and, of course, a sample of five Kimbolton wines. And to top it off, you can admire the panoramic views of the lush, sprawling vineyards below, while being shaded by the giant gumtrees. You’ll even get to keep the wine glasses and cheese board as a special memento!
We love that you can feel good about drinking wine at Kimbolton, as well as five other wineries in Langhorne Creek, because a portion of their profits benefit endangered species conservation at Monarto Safari Park—a globally recognised project called Grapes for Good. So be generous and stock up!
These experiences can be customised to be enjoyed with your significant other or simply toasting to friendship with your besties, but that’s not all.
The Kimbolton team is all about creating a welcoming family-friendly space and can help introduce your little ones to the wonders of South Australia’s flavours. They have a special kids’ flight that includes three yummy Bickford’s cordials and a tasty sample of cheese, kabana, and chocolate. And during the chilly months, they switch things up with a sweet treat of chocolate, marshmallows, and biscuits paired with flavoured milks. The little ones will love the additional Kimbolton activity pack, complete with a pencil tube and bubbles that they get to take home. How cool is that (this might even make it easier to bribe them to come back again)?
Want to bring your furry friend along for the fun? Your four-legged companion is more than welcome to join in on the wine tasting fun. With plenty of outdoor spaces to roam and relax, your pet will love exploring the winery just as much as you will.
Sounds like the perfect summer day relaxing in the company of your favourite people, right?
Although their reign of monthly Beats & Eats events is coming to a temporary halt after the Greek in the Creek event on 11 February 2023, the cellar door rarely shuts its door.
So, if it’s a long weekend or public holiday, you can most likely find a food truck stationed at Kimbolton (or even some live music). The best way to find out, is to keep up with their social media pages.
If you’re looking for a unique function space, this is one that will impress your guests with its sensational structural design of repurposed shipping containers. Have a chat with the team to see what your options are.
