Our visit was perhaps adversely affected as it was on Easter Saturday and the tasting room was full of yuppies, downing as much wine as was poured. The staff were very friendly but too busy to give any personal attention. The wines are, of course, superb, and we were able to try some that were unknown to us, but as... More

Visited with low expectations notwithstanding the reds are my favorite on planet earth. The generosity of the frontline cellar door staff without purchase expectations was sensational. I was primed to buy but we were on a tight schedule so missed out, although i will now always seek out their product in my favorite bottle shops.

Well where do I start, I guess from the beginning. The customer service while booking the behind the scenes tour and lunch booking was courteous, helpful and perfect. The behind the scenes tour was informative and very interesting and you are made to feel special, and I would like to give a special thanks to John our tour guide who... More

You need to come here and have at least one meal here before you die! The food is spectacular. The service is sensational. I can't wait to go back there again!!! Do yourself a favour and book a table and you will see what I mean. I went there a year ago & my tastebuds still remember everything. My only... More

The quality of the food is excellent. The service outstanding. We came here to have lunch with our friend, very delighted! However, it was a hot day and there were lots of flys!!!

Most enjoyable and informative. Our guide Mary was friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgable. We were entertained with stories of the history of the winery and how the wines got their names while tasting a selection of wines. Tasting grapes on the vine, sampling from an enclosed fermentation tub and looking at the bubbling open fermentation tanks and basket presses were highlights... More

d'Arry's restaurant lived up to the hype. Located on premises of d'Arenberg Winery, they have access to the wines that you never get outside of Australia, maybe even outside of the winery. My wife and I tried the Degustation menu. Could be perceived a bit on the pricier side but it was worth it. They also accommodated my wife's vegetarian... More

We arrived for lunch on a Saturday with family members and were greeted very warmly by the staff. We sat down and started the lunch off with a sparkling Shiraz just beautiful they do wines well at d'Arenburg. They bought some crumbed olives stuffed with an almond I was in heaven. I had the grilled ox tongue to start with... More

What a professional yet layback experience. All questions answered so good by Mary who can advise on all aspects of the operation without any hard sell. People make the product full stop and the wine quality and customer service combined make this a must visit in McLarenvale. Restaurant looked busy and dishes passing from the kitchen very presentable. Mary, you... More

My partner and I were given vouchers to The Blending Bench by our daughter and wow was it wonderful. An opportunity to learn more about winemaking and then to mix and match three of their Shiraz wines to blend our own. Thanks to our wonderful host Penny the day was very memorable. We now have two bottles of our own... More
