Tasting Experiences

Chalk Hill Tasting Experience

Chalk hill tasting

Explore award-winning wines from Chalk Hill and Small Batch Release range.

$20 Per Person | Maximum 10 Guests | 45 Minutes

Wines in the Chalk Hill range are premium quality that can be enjoyed by themselves or will compliment foods. The Small Batch Release (SBR) wines are our winemaking playground, much like a test-kitchen where we can experiment with smaller ferments and exciting grape varieties. 

Alpha Crucis Lounge

Alpha Crucis Sub-Regional tasting

Delve into the terroir of McLaren Vale.

$30 Per Person | Available for Limited Time Only.

We are thrilled to release our Alpha Crucis Sub-Regional Syrah Trio, commemorating six decades of winemaking mastery. Join us for a limited-time tasting experience featuring the premiere of the three distinguished 2021 Alpha Crucis Subregional Syrah. This exclusive tasting experience is available only from June 8th to June 15th.
