Our problem was what wines to buy! We loved so many that we bought one of their $10 12 bottle crates. Cellar door staff were lovely and I would recommend this winery 100%

We coincidentally visited Coonawarra during the ‘Cellar Dwellers’ month (July) so we got to taste a range of 2008 ($10 extra) wines and could compare with current vintage. Naomi at the Katnook cellar door was super lovely and super helpful. We enjoyed all the wines...More

Lovely wines, lovely experience - thank you! We tried both the Flight tasting of 2008 wines as well as the normal tasting. We were looking for a memorable and quintessential Coonawarra Cabernet and found what we were looking for here.

OK to be honest we only called into Katnook because Mr Google said it had a fire place. The day was cold and rainy and the fire was attracting us. Being such a bad day the cellar door was very quiet. Michelle was very welcoming...More

We didn't have much time in the Coonawarra, so were quite selective in which cellar doors we visited. Based on the excellent reviews for Katnook, we chose to stop. Well, it was a lovely experience. We were the only ones in the cellar door. It...More

Hi Cynthia, we are thrilled you chose to stop at Katnook and that you had such a great experience. We hope you can return to our beautiful region again soon to experience the hospitality of other leading wineries in our region.

We visited eight wineries and all were very, very good. Consistency seems to be the case in this region. But if really pushed, we thought that Katnook's wines, together with the warm welcome and generous tasting, just about shaded it.

We went here recently for a tasting and just loved it!! The staff were so welcoming and friendly, and they had a toy basket for our young children to play with. Wines were exceptional and the tasting list very extensive! One of our favourite wineries.
