I attended the chateau with 15 other women on at hens day wine tour throughout the Barossa Valley. We were welcomed as soon as we entered the place and they took two groups of seven and plied us with a wide variety of wines both red and white as well as the Liqueurs and Ports.

While the wine tasting was free which was lovely it was possible to purchase your favourite tasting wine by the glass for $7.

The wines range from $16 to $25 a bottle which is pretty good, and they have various specials planted around the wine tasting area for you to consider the wines by the Dozen.

You cannot buy these boutique wines at outlets throughout the city, so if he really like one of their wines, you need to buy it here.

Full of olden day feel, children were not bored, they shopped for gem stones when we had wine tasting. Great drops. Definitely recommend.

So we have been here a couple of times and you regularly go past it on your way through the town... but this is a good stop with a good drop! Depending on what you are looking for in a wine, MANY people walk out of here with a case of at least 6 wines! For me, the highlight of this little winery is (not only the silos that are made to look like castle turrets) but the ports and the mead. If you like Mead, which is fermented honey, its a must stop! But it's their strong tradition in ports and the bottles on the walls that I found interesting. The Buckaneer, and the chocolate liqueur is YUM! This winery is not like the others, its family friendly and has other attractions such as stalls, rock and fossil collections and rocks for sale. And it has foosball!

Chateau Dorrien caught our eye as we were driving around the Barossa Valley yesterday. We arrived early not long after the doors had opened and were greeted by the warmest greeting. Genuine feeling of being welcomed. We had explained to us what Chateau Dorrien wines were about and some local history. We then started a taste of the whites and reds before trying the Mead varieties. The wines are fantastic and OMG when we got to the Meads they are to die for. This is a fantastic cellar Door to stop off at and try there wares. If you are doing a scheduled booked tour insist that your driver stops off here. Fully recommend the experience

A different experience than that offered by other wineries visited, as this one specialises in mead, which is a must try. We ended up taking away 3 bottles but would have bought more if not for our worries about getting the stuff back home on the plane. If you're a chocoholic the Scarlett mead will win you over for sure. The whites we tried were also very nice, bought a lovely Riesling at a reasonable price. Friendly place too, we had a lovely chat with Vic about wine and other things. Recommend you stop here, you can't miss it on the main road between Nurioopta and Tanunda.
