Cellar Door Facilities & Tours
Welcome to Katnook Cellar Door! Check out our ‘walk in’ Terra Rossa experience, showcasing Coonawarra’s famous soil profile. This won the 2015 'Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine' award for Best Additional Coonawarra Wine Experience. See the profound effect the earth has on our wine styles.... then step inside and taste it!
Our knowledgeable, friendly staff welcome you daily for a free, educational tasting of Katnook wines.
You’ve travelled a long way - so we make sure that all our wines are available for you to sample, including our rare Odyssey and Prodigy releases. Tour Groups are welcome by appointment only.
Delicious local cheese and produce platters are available for sale. Self serve tea and coffee are also offered via a gold coin donation to local community groups in lieu of payment.
You are welcome to bring your own picnic and enjoy in our dedicated area overlooking the vines.
Adjacent to our Cellar Door bar lies a comfortable lounge area, with an open fire crackling in winter. This is the perfect sanctuary to savour our wines, cheese and coffee, while perusing our wine books and magazines. Stepping back in time to the days when John Riddoch managed his Coonawarra business from this magnificent historic limestone building is all part of the fun.
Children are kept happy with our famous box of toys, freeing you up to focus on your wine tasting experience. We have an ongoing colouring competition for children.
There's even a water bowl for our 4 legged visitors. Everyone is warmly welcomed at Katnook.
You will find Katnook on the Riddoch Highway, 6.6km north of Penola on the left side. Coonawarra is 450km from Melbourne, 370km from Adelaide and 80km inland from the Southern Ocean. Check here for map.
