In this unprecedented and challenging COVID-19 environment the health and safety of our Cellar Door staff, visitors and wider community remain our priority.

Now that we are cleared to re-open under Alert Level 2 our Cellar Door welcomes you from Wednesday 8 September 2021. Reservations are encouraged but not essential - please use the booking form below, email or call us on 03 577 5177.

During level 2, we need to manage groups, seating and spacing to make sure we keep your group and our staff safe.

We endeavor to take booking for groups up to 6 people per group, and seated tastings will be for up to 45 minutes duration. We will maintain 1m distance between groups and you will have one of our friendly staff members for the duration of your tasting. We are allocating 15 minutes for cleaning between tastings. We are unable to accept cash payments during level 2 but we have contactless payment available.

We are also open for walk-in bottle sales (no appointment necessary).

Or, if you'd like to contact us, please email us.
