Try the maze or the wines
Divine flavours and good old fashioned service. With limited diners, we were lavished with attention to detail!

We choose to dine in The Cellar Door Deck, where there is an expansive view of the vines on the hill. Being vintage, it was a hive of activities with pickers. There is also a large glass window into the winery where you can see the grapes in their open fermenting vats.

Open daily, the menu is based on shared plates, giving you a chance to tantalise the tastebuds. We were very satisfied with the five small plates we shared amongst the three of us.

Chef Fabian Lehmann prepares a range of menu experiences. The confit ocean trout with daikon and granny smith apples was an absolute delight. Our vote of the best dish goes to Spaetzle, roast chicken and cream with onions, which packed a real punch of flavour. The plates range in price from $12 for the confit duck through to $22 for the Spaetzle.

They offer a 'just feed us' package for $65 a head, which was very tempting, as making a decision on which plates was a challenge. You can also do tastings of the Maxwell wines. We ordered the Riesling, which was the perfect match for our plates.

If you don't want to dine inside, you can get a wine and cheese board from the cellar door and then relax in the picnic grounds where the kids, young and old can explore the maze. The maze and picnic area is open 10 am to 5pm daily.

Just a short 45 minute drive from Adelaide.
