(Please be aware South Australian vineyards are phylloxera-free. Phylloxera is a tiny insect that destroys vines from the roots up, and with no known treatment, is responsible for destroying some of Europe’s great vineyards. If you are arriving from interstate, especially from NSW or Victoria, please make sure your car tyres and shoes have been throughly cleaned, and avoid wandering around the vineyard unaccompanied. We would be more than happy to give you a tour if you like.)

The Granary

Featuring a Juliette balcony as well as upstairs bathroom with double rain-head showers and soaking bath for two, with views to die for over rolling vineyards clear to the Willunga ranges. Along with mortar inscriptions going back 150 years, this 90m2 luxury suite has a beautiful glass cutout in the kitchen floor, revealing secret items unearthed during the building’s recent restoration. Originally where grains were sorted and bagged, “the Granary” also has an utterly unique chaff chute adorned with century-old graffiti- now the pantry door in the fully-appointed kitchen. The king bed in this suite can also be separated into two king singles.

The Millery

Originally where grain was processed, this 120m2 luxury suite features a spectacular repurposed winnower, originally used to sort grain from chaff (the husks of the grain), but now a 2-metre chandelier. As well as a toasty-warm combustion heater, it has two generous seating areas, and a gorgeous, reconditioned outdoor clawfoot bath, that opens up to a private garden via 200 year old solid teak doors- bathe under the stars! Two extra guests can stay in a comfortable fold-out queen sofa bed, located in the downstairs living area.
