Our unique cellar door sales building overlooks a tranquil pond full of bird life, surrounded by vineyards and over 900 beautiful rose bushes. Our Cellar door experience has much to offer. Taste the range of our award-winning wines with our friendly, knowledgeable staff. Look out over the pond while the birds swim and the cows graze among the vineyards. The decking is a perfect place to relax, enjoy a cheese platter & glass of wine and take in the tranquil atmosphere of the Balnaves property. Our award winning wines are available by the glass for $5.00 and we encourage you to use our lawns to enjoy a picnic lunch. Children are welcome at Balnaves. With a large lawn area and picnic facilities, it is an ideal place to stop for a break. We even supply toys for inside & out, activity packs and even a little treat for the well behaved!

We loved this visit. This is the first time to the coonawarra and this place gets a high rating and I can understand why. The wine is outstanding. Lauren was fantastic and helpful and a great asset. Lovely setting.

In a beautiful setting of rose gardens and a duck pond Balnaves was a lovely visit. And at the centre of the cellar door is a beautifully carved table of such texture that your hands can't help but caress it. Great staff and wines.
