Owner description: COONAWARRA EXPERIENCES offers you the premier boutique wine touring service in Coonawarra with intimate and unique experiences for all who visit Coonawarra. Highly customised tours revolve around you and what you wish to achieve during your stay in this world famous and historic region. Our tours cater for groups of all sizes in comfort and style including corporate reward packages and team building options. You enjoy the day whilst we look after the driving. The Coonawarra wine region is certainly world famous for Cabernet Sauvignon but also offers a tremendous range of other varietals such as Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Merlot just to name a few. Many visitors to Coonawarra are knocked out by the choices on offer at the various cellar doors. Most of the cellar doors are open seven days a week which provides plenty of options. There are also a number that are by appointment only and this is where COONAWARRA EXPERIENCES can assist in arranging access for you.

Wow! What an experience. We stayed at Simon & Kerry's accommodation which was a boutique, 2 bed-roomed unit. Furnished to a high end standard, we had one of the best nights sleep we've ever had. Little touches can make such a big difference when staying away from home and the underfloor heating in the bathroom, Nespresso coffee machine, Sheridan bedding and towels certainly did that.
We were fortunate enough to spend two days touring the beautiful Coonawarra and were treated to a wonderful private tasting at Yalumba. Its obvious from the minute you step into any winery just how highly regarded Simon & Kerry are. We were made to feel very welcome and part of what feels like a close knitted community.
I highly recommend Coonawarra Experiences and cant wait to return.

Ours was an impulse trip so accommodation was booked on the hoof which turned out to be 19 Arthur Street! Wow - what a fab apartment, so well presented and comfortable and that’s how we met Simon, one of the owners. He took us for a days wine tasting and every venue was like walking into a friends house. He knows the cellar door folks so well and is so knowledgeable about them and all of the wines that you felt a real connection. The tour was planned around us as we’d already tried a few cellar doors on our own.
We visited 4 cellar doors then lunch at Ostelia + Fodder for a pizza and scone. Absolutely fabulous food, service and setting. Would highly recommend No3 pizza
More cellar doors after lunch and loved the enthusiasm and personal touch at each cellar door that Simon brought. Can’t recommend the tour enough and we will definitely be back with friends!

Our day tour with Coonawarra Experiences run by Simon and Kerry was a great way to meet the owners & winemakers and hear the family stories behind some of the region's most iconic wines.

Nothing was too much trouble for Simon running our itinerary, allowing us to go at our own pace or accommodating last minute changes.

If you're visiting the Coonawarra, would very much recommend letting Simon & Kerry to look after you.

Simon was a superb host for the tour. His knowledge of the wine area as well as the individual winery owners was immense. He was instrumental in making us feel welcome at each winery. We can definitely recommend him to give you a fantastic experience. Make sure that you have a lot of room in your car for wine!!!
