Overview

Minko is a family run vineyard producing premium, cool climate wines. Our vineyards are in the heart of the Fleurieu Peninsula, just off Woodcone Road in Mount Compass, and our cellar door is on the main street of Willunga. Minko proudly practices eco sustainable viticulture with an ethos of caring for the environment, our staff and our customers. We produce wines which are balanced and elegant, and which enhance the flavour of food. We grow Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Savagnin, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Minko's cellar door is located in one of the oldest heritage cottages in the main street of Willunga, in front of Russel's Pizza. A fusion of Italian enoteca and French providore, it oozes character and charm. We are proud of our friendly service and cosy, cheerful atmosphere. Our tiny cellar door is the perfect backdrop to try Minko's range of wines and sample some of the region's local produce, including Minko's own award winning virgin olive oil and Minko scrub honey, plus chutneys, sauces, jams and treats made for us which you won't find in a supermarket. Check our fridge for local cheeses from Woodside, Alexandrina and Hindmarsh Valley and our freezer for Andy's homemade lasagne and gnocchi. We have absolutely everything you need to put together the perfect nibbles platter, including the cheese board and, of course, the wine to go with it! On Saturday mornings Andy Clappis delivers his handmade crusty bread and Happy Food Produce (including homemade pasta, sauces and pizza bases), and Pat Danvers serves up her famous pasties, quiche, panforte and homemade jams and chutneys.

This little gem is filled with delicious, quality goodies and we make a bee line for it whenever we head to the great little 'village' of Willunga. Without doubt our favourites are the pasties - small and large pastries filled with meat and veg. We...More

We were looking for the cellar door and almost drove past without seeing it. But it was the best tasting experience we have ever had. Kym just loves her job and we loved the wines.
