Never been to this place and was very keen to check it out. Great experience from start to finish. Great views with 360d vines on a lush lawn. I went in a group of 4, I had the premium red tasting and all the wines were fantastic. Shout out to Maddy who really looked after us and went above and beyond ensuring we were home safe

Beautiful spot, a cool, funky cellar door and beautiful views across the Valley.

The wines are reasonable and not badly priced, we were a little underwhelmed with the service to be honest. The girl working didn't really engage with us, didn't seem to be interested in talking in more detail about the wine or having a more personalised approach and given we were the only ones at the cellar door, this is definitely something which could be improved.

The cutest little cellar door with the most unique design. Made up of shipping containers with luscious green grass and a deck. Will definitely visit again maybe in the summer months

We came here late one afternoon are were the only ones there. It was magical. Got the $15 tasting flight of reds. Nice mix of single vineyard and blends on offer. Was great as the sun w atas setting. Cool idea being in shipping containers too.

We booked the $15 guided flight of 6 quality wines, refundable on purchase. Three different flights are offered. Generous serves and friendly service. Nice setting - newish winery designed from shipping containers. They also do free tastings served outside. Overall we enjoyed the experience.

Visiting Dowie Doole was a fabulous experience the wines were delish and our purchase that day was very much enjoyed, since then with COVID19 we ordered their home tasting pack which we received very quickly and was absolutely value for money and a great experience. Can't wait to get bac there.

Beautiful location, but unfortunately the service was awful. The lady who served us never once introduced herself or let us know about the local wine they offered. Thankfully they had lawn games or this would have been an even worse experience.
1 Star for the location. 1 Star for the games.

We had a fabulous afternoon at the new cellar door! We were a large group, but were very well catered for. The staff were very knowledgeable about the wines we were tasting and the wines were sensational! The grassed area overlooking the vines was picturesque and gorgeous, with the funky shipping containers comprising the cellar door a great addition. I will definitely be back!

One of the coolest new cellar doors in McLaren Vale! Went there with my boyfriend, our dog and a small group of our friends - had an awesome arvo doing some wine flights and playing Finska on the lawn! Perfect spot to bring your friends or even your dog, staff are super friendly, nice laid back vibe and the tasting pod is super cool!
