The holidays are here and there is no better time to relax, indulge and discover Coonawarra!
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 the traditional public holidays after Christmas and New Year, it’s business as usual for the majority with boxing day trading right through to new years day and beyond. So you’ll have plenty of options to fill your itinerary (and your glass) this festive season!
