Uncover a Coonawarra treasure

The Coonawarra Vignerons have dug out some treasures from their cellars to offer visitors a rare opportunity to taste and buy aged wines during the month of July.

This is the sixth consecutive year that Coonawarra Cellar Dwellers is being held in a move by the Vignerons to attract visitors to the region at this traditionally slow time of the year.

Coonawarra wines are well known for their aging ability and Cellar Dwellers provides our region with an opportunity to showcase wines that are otherwise not available for tasting. This event is attracting growing interest particularly from people looking for the opportunity to try something a bit different. It is a wonderful way to spend a couple of days escaping from the hustle and bustle to taste, discuss, learn and most importantly relax.
