Coonawarra Easter Long Weekend Guide

Easter is just around the corner and there is no better time to relax, indulge and explore!

Our famed Coonawarra Strip is lined with over 25 Cellar Doors with many boutique and family owned operations. While some are taking a break on Good Friday, it’s business as usual from Saturday right through the Easter long weekend.

As far as we are concerned, Good Friday is just as good a day as any to go wine tasting. With over 10 Coonawarra wineries opening their cellar doors, you’ll have plenty of options to fill your itinerary (and your glass)!
