    Must order canapes
    Maxwell was my first stop on a day tour and the wine/canape matching was the highlight. Being able to taste the wine with a matched nibble of food changed the tasting experience completely. A delicious introduction to McLaren Vale.

    Fantastic!
    We enjoyed the heritage tour at Maxwell winery with Heidi very much. She is very knowledgeable and personable. It's fun to hear about the stories of the winery, taste the wine out of the barrel and see the tunnel. Highly recommended.

    A fabulous winery, cellar door and restaurant in McLaren Vale, about 35 minutes from Adelaide CBD. The wines vary from delicate cold climate bubbles to the mighty Minatour, a classic heavy South Australian shiraz. The restaurant has a chef with 3 Michelin star experience overseas and serves delightful size serves which encourages a variety of different culinary pleasures. If you happen to run into Mark, the owner and winemaker, his "tall tales and true" are well up to matching the Disney equivalent !!

    Grenache and Gourmet
    Fantastic and informative night out with delicious pairings and masterclass of Grenache wines from 3 wineries. I particularly loved the collaboration between the brands and coming together to showcase some of the best tasting wines. Food was impeccable and pretty as a picture and the company was great too! Would definitely attend again.

    Perfect from start to finish
    This was our second visit to Maxwells and have to say the experience was even better than the first. although our group was a little smaller this year, the 10 course degustation was exceptional and completely different to the first time. We started with the winery heritage tour, which included barrel tasting some delicious reds and then headed to lunch where we were treated like kings and queens but spoken to in the friendliest manner with smiling, relaxed but efficient happy staff who truly belong in hospitality. I won't say too much about the dishes, but lets just say we took many 'food porn' photos and the flavours...........excellent match to the wines served.......or is it the other way around? Who cares. Going back with friends at the end of Jan. Thankyou Maxwells.

    Tasting & Canapes
    We enjoyed an exceptional tasting to celebrate family birthday - it was the starting point for our day. The staff were amazing, knowledgeable and attentive. We ate, drank and laughed then finished off buying several bottles to share for New Years Eve.

My partner and I came to do the Premium Wine and Canapes tasting - it was fabulous. The wines were explained to us and how it paired up with the canapes. We were then left to try the wines and canapes at our own speed with our host popping back every now and then to check on how we were going and if we had any questions. Would definitely recommend.
