Yorke Peninsula's award winning winery
Yorke Peninsula isn't typically associated with wineries but you may be surprised to discover an award-winning winery located right in the heart of the region. Barley Stacks Wines was the first commercial vineyard and cellar door to be established on the traditional barley belt of the peninsula and the only multi-award-winning winery. It is located just 13km (11 minutes drive) south of Maitland.

Barley Stacks Wines are uniquely flavoured by the region in which it sits, neighbouring barley & cereal crops, salty sea air, and the rich ancient limestone soils. The vineyards are situated onsite, so the entire process takes place on the property from growing the grapes to harvesting, crushing, fermenting and bottling.

On arrival at the property, the enormous shed front hides a spectacular entrance into the cellar door and function space. With a rustic feel of timber beams, corrugated iron and huge walls made of stacked wine barrels, the space is lit up with twinkling fairy lights and lanterns and a scattering of lush green plants.

The long timber bar invites you to take a seat to enjoy a wine tasting of their large range of sparkling, white and red wines, as well as a few port varieties, or you can choose from a range of South Australian beers and ciders. There are plenty of non-alcoholic soft drinks, juices and bottled waters too.

When you're hungry, you can order cheese platters with dried fruits, nuts and relishes, or a selection of gourmet pizzas with vegetarian and gluten-free options. Smaller bar snacks like chips and nuts are available as well. A display shelf also features a handful of edible products from local producers in the region.

Special events and functions can be hosted in the large rustic space, accommodating up to 200 seated or 400 standing – anything from weddings & receptions to corporate functions or tour groups. A built-in stage with audiovisual equipment and lighting makes the perfect setup for any style of event, and a completely flexible layout of tables, chairs, barrels and more to customise your event any way you like.

The venue is family-friendly including dogs, with a dedicated Kids Corner to keep little ones entertained with an assortment of games and toys.

Barley Stacks Wines host a variety of special events and functions including live music and long weekend food feasts - keep an eye on their online pages for more info and make sure to come along to one of their upcoming weekend events, or just check it out on your next visit.
