One of my Favourite McLaren Vale wineries has proved once again, why it is just that.
With a cellar door face-lift, and the new addition “Harry’s Deli”; we just had to make a visit!
As you enter the grand wooden doors, you are immediately embraced by a warm and comforting vibe. There’s modern touches, high exposed-beam ceilings, timber galore, moody lighting, and a kick-ass fire place.
We began (of course) with a wine-tasting, hosted by lovely and passionate staff.
The wine list is huge, and there’s something for everybody.
My picks are the Mrs Wigley Grenache Rose, Amator Shiraz, and my absolute favourite; The Absconder Grenache.
The Absconder was simply perfection. You just have to taste for yourself!
Then of course, it was lunch time. The new “Harry’s Deli” is a provedore-style café, showcasing great local produce and businesses.
You can enjoy a local Swell craft beer, or Wirra Wirra wine by the glass to accompany your meal.
To eat, you can dive into a regional platter, or choose from their tasty Panini sandwiches, pies, salads and soup.
For us, it was a Panini and Mexican soup for the win. Simple flavoursome goodness, and served with a big smile.
We thoroughly enjoyed the food, whilst tucked away in a leather-seated booth next to the toasty fire.
When the sun is shining, you can move on out to the large courtyard, and enjoy the views of the vines and big gums.
Wirra Wirra is family AND dog friendly, and they encourage people to come and stay a while. Picnics on the lawn are welcome too!
Make a day of it, and enjoy!
