Children - We have listed The Winemakers House as unsuitable for children. We are not against children staying however there are some safety concerns. We are happy to discuss these concerns with any families that would like to book The Winemakers House.

Location

Penola, South Australia, Australia

So much to do and so little time! Wineries, cafes, restaurants, shops, historical streets and houses, parks, the list is almost endless.
A few highlights;
Wineries, there are many well known and some lesser-known treasures. Guests can walk to many of the local wineries from The Winemakers House, to walk to these wineries you will be walking along the main road, please be responsible. Coonawarra is Phylloxera free and we would love to keep it that way. Please respect each winery with their request to not walk amongst the vines. If walking isn't to your liking you can book a tour, we recommend Coonawarra Experiences, alternatively, it is an easy drive up and down the Riddoch Hwy for the designated driver.
Eating out, we are lucky enough to have some great options when you don’t feel like cooking. Aside from organising a platter at The Blok Coonawarra, there is also The Royal Oak (Penola), Pipers of Penola (Penola), Fodder (Coonawarra) and Upstairs at Hollick (Coonawarra) to name a few. Our local IGA also rates a mention, you can’t eat there but they are a great source for any feasts you feel like cooking up and their cheese chest is a must visit!
History, Petticoat Lane has original 19th century buildings and gardens to meander through and a working herb and vegetable garden with produce available to visitors for a small coin donation. There are also several sights that are of historical significance for Saint Mary MacKillop.
