Cellar Door Fest



Coonawarra

Coonawarra is renowned as one of Australia’s finest wine regions and is predominantly identified by its world class red wines in particular Cabernet Sauvignon. Its secret lies in the perfect combination of  a highly-prized and unique rich rust-red “terra rossa” soil over limestone, underground aquifers and a long cool ripening season for the grapes which all contribute to the creation of beautiful, elegant, intensely flavoured wines. There are 30 cellar doors conveniently located in the Coonawarra wine region that are popular with visitors and locals alike. The region hosts some great annual events including City Dwellers in July to show off the ageing ability of their red wines; the Coonawarra Cabernet Celebrations throughout October; and the Coonawarra Cup in January, just to mention a few.
