  • I always come to d'Arenburg wines when visiting and I am never disappointed by the wines. This was our first time since the Cube has been open and I was taken aback by the $10 entrance. As members we ...  more »

  • The shed/barn from the out side did not appear to be a cellar and wine room but surprisingly very nice inside. This wine room is set out with varnished wood with simple but high end displays set in a old style barn. Very helpful staff in the “shed” providing additional details on wines and assisting us with all our purchases. A must visit after dinner or a visit to the cube.
  • Amazing place to visit, the whole experience is wonderful. A creative vision brought to life. The cellar/wine room keep a lovely traditional winery feel which was a great addition outside of the cube.
  • Have made a mess of wine tasting by only offering in the Cube. $10 entry even for kids makes this ridiculously expensive when you have a large family. Try buying wines in the stable from inexperienced staff with only two staff not knowing the first thing about the wines available for purchase. There are far better options in the Vale. Go to Wirra Wirra instead. Great experience to be had there.
  • It's an amazing new building worth a look for sure, John looked after us today. He new his stuff and gave our group a great experience.
  • Fantastic wine - Dead Arm Shiraz is our absolute favourite. We had lunch with the whole family, and while the kids were a bit crazy, the meal was one of the best I've had in years. Highlights were the lobster bisque and the desserts (chocolate pudding and passion fruit soufflé).
