Cellar Dwellers Special Events Guide

With so much on offer this Cellar Dwellers, we’ve compiled a list of ‘feature events’ that you should definitely add to the top of your to-do lists!

There is more than wine to be enjoyed during Cellar Dwellers in July. Meet the makers, share in the stories and join the festivities as our wineries deliver a range of special events both in Coonawarra and in the nearby Blue Lake City of Mount Gambier.

Immerse yourself in all things Coonawarra with an array of events including masterclasses, winery tours, exclusive museum tastings, high teas, luncheons, intimate winemaker dinners and pop up festivals.

Each of these events has been designed for your enjoyment, with a consistent theme – that is, to showcase Coonawarra’s superb wines and how beautifully they age over time.

You’re certain to find something that appeals to you. But be quick – if you’re keen to attend any one of the below categorised ‘Special Events’ you’ll need to book ahead to secure your spot, with limited spaces available in most instances.
