The local information about wineries and related matters for the Coonwarra region is readily available and easy to understand. The one thing that isn’t mentioned, however, is the wall-to-wall carpet of vines along the terra rossa strip is bisected by a busy highway with a 110 kmph speed limit, and a constant flow of heavy vehicles. So, if you’re tempted to slow down as you approach the winery of your choice – well, be very, very careful of that truck behind you! No dawdling here.
That said, we did tastings at 3 wineries (Wynns, Zema and Rymill) and had lunch at another (Fodder at Ottelia). I counted 23 wineries with cellar doors (and in addition there are a number that aren’t open to the public), so we only touched the surface. We might have been tempted to call in at one or two more, but there’s a limit to how much wine we can fit in the car – and we’re yet to hit the Barossa!
Dinner was at the pizza/pasta place in town. Great pizza for starters, but the gnocchi was “ordinary”.
