Our top Coonawarra wines to enjoy this long-weekend

Whether you’re planning a quiet weekend in, a short trip away, a staycation or a quaint dinner with friends – we have some drops we know you’ll love!

We’ve compiled this day-by-day guide to inspire your weekend adventures.

Saturday in Spring

With the weather warming up, it the perfect time for a picnic. Why not sip the afternoon away with our Blockers Chardonnay? It’s a great accompaniment to good company, an interesting book and some fresh prawns.

Sunday is for Rosé

Sundays on a long-weekend are always exciting because for the first time in a long time, you can say you don’t have work tomorrow.  What better way to soak up the sun on Sunday with Old Station Rosé and a BBQ with family and friends?

Mellow Monday

Monday is for mellowing out on the couch, popping on some Netflix and enjoying a nice hearty glass of Cabernet. Coonawarra (and Brand’s Laira) prides itself on Cabernet Sauvignon so if red wine is more your thing our Blockers Cabernet Sauvignon is for you. It’s also the perfect accompaniment to those barbecued leftovers you’ve had your eye on.

If you’re in SA, why not book a Coonawarra wine tasting at our Cellar Door? We are currently open (by appointment only) on weekends from 10.30am – 4.30pm. Conditions apply.

Looking for things to do in Coonawarra this long-weekend? The town kicks off its annual Coonawarra Cabernet Celebrations; a month long festival every October dedicated to the cause.

Coonawarra Cabernet Celebrations is one of South Australia’s best regional wine based events, with over 60 unique food and wine experiences designed to showcase and celebrate the Coonawarra wine region’s beautiful signature red wine: Cabernet Sauvignon.
