About
Our tasting room is open 7 days (excluding Good Friday, Christmas Day and Boxing Day) from 11am – 5pm. Relax on the deck, immerse yourself in a personalised guided Tasting Experience and take in unparalleled views of our vineyards and beyond to the sea. With a large open lawn area to enjoy in spring and summer, and heating on the deck for autumn and winter, it’s always a perfect time to visit us. If you are looking to experience the beautiful natural bushland of McLaren Vale at your own relaxed pace, you can pick up a local produce picnic pack and bottle of wine at our Tasting Room to enjoy within the Gemtree Eco Trail. Here you can explore the restored native landscape, relax in the wide-open spaces and use the BBQ facilities and playground. Our Tasting Experiences are conducted seated at your own individual table. To ensure we can accommodate you and your companions, bookings are essential.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

At 10am, we arrived at Gemtree Winery and got a deep inside of their history, their wines/wineyards and biodynamic wine making approach.
Afterwards we walked on the Gemtree Eco Trail, where the owner of Gemtree planted more than 50.000 plants. Half way, at the lake a picnic was prepared for us. It was prepared with a bottle of Gemtree wine (our choice) and by The Salopian Inn and really extraordinary food! Nearly Michelin Star quality!
After another hour, we were picked up again…overall very recommended and very unique at McLaren Vale!

We had a fantastic visit to Gemtree. We turned up a week early (oops) but were made to feel very welcome and the team went out of their way to accomodate us.

Their wines are fantastic, the platter was delish and Tania was a great guide.

Their wine making methods are fascinating.

Could not recommend Gemtree Wines highly enough.

I had to visit Gemtree vineyard. For many years I could only drink their wines as I suffered from histamine intolerance. We did both the native wine tasting experience as well as the biodynamic tour. Tania took us on a magical journey through their history, the vines, introducing us to Fernando the alpacha and serving us delicious wines! Loved every minute of our visit!

I took my Mum for a wine tasting at Gemtree. We both had a delightful experience - we were welcomed as soon as we walked in, and had a table with lovely views down the hill.

I particularly appreciated how we could each choose five wines to taste from a comprehensive list. The wines were delicious- especially the April’s Dance sparkling!

A beautiful place nestled in the rolling hills. We had a fabulous guide in Tash, who gave us a tour of the grounds & explained how the wine is produced organically & sustainably.
We tasted 6 different wines then enjoyed a glass with an amazing platter of local ham, cheese & other goodies.

We enjoyed our tasting at Gemtree - particularly the red wines. Before visiting the winery we went to the Ecotrail, which was a little underwhelming, but a good spot for a picnic to break up our day visiting wineries.

A beautiful biodynamic winery in Mclaren Vale. Stunning views over the vineyard, large grassed area and great wines! The staff were all so lovely and the wine tasting session was very informative. The wine tasting started out with an acknowledgement of country then went into a detailed session about the wine making process. I was ecstatic to hear Gemtree are aiming to be carbon neutral in 5 years, that’s fantastic!
