Jacob’s Creek is a name that has long been synonymous with Australian viticulture. With a lineage going back a cheeky 175 years, and a label seen in every bottle shop, restaurant and wine bar in the country, Jacob’s Creek is a true legend of the Australian vino scene!

Located in the iconic Barossa Valley, Jacob’s Creek proudly offers one of the region’s top cellar door experiences, taking out awards such as “The Best Large Cellar Door” in the Gourmet Traveller Wine Awards.

The elegantly rustic cellar door experience is complete with all the additions you would find at such a prestigious winery: sumptuous dining options, a “blend bar” where visitors can blend their own wine, a fully-stocked store and front of house wine cafe!

Visiting Jacob’s Creek should be a top priority for Aussie wine lovers, not just because of its amazing cellar door experience, but also for the sheer legend status that comes with the name.

You are sure to have a wonderful time trying their famous vintages, mixing your own new blends and enjoying some of the fabulous dining options that perfectly complement their wine, and a cellar door visit is ideally paired with some of these other Barossa winery experiences:

Peter Lehmann

Alongside the unmistakable Jacob’s Creek, Peter Lehmann is a name with deeply-rooted Barossa history. Lehmann, a fifth generation winemaker, is a local legend for refusing to allow larger corporations to muscle in on his legendary winery, and it goes to show when you visit its stunning cellar door.

The experience is a warm and homely affair, complete with tastings of each of the label’s 30 vintages, producing a delightful time that is always finished with having a couple of their top bottles sent back home!

Chateau Tanunda

Chateau Tanunda isn’t just a tasting experience – it’s an immersive learning experience, too! The impressively-luxe Chateau Tanunda estate takes you behind the cellar doors, teaching you all about the label’s rich history as well as some of the desired winemaking secrets the general public don’t know about…

Lambert Estate

Lambert Estate offers the full winery experience: a fine dining menu, event space, even a charming place to rest your weary wine-filled head for a few days.

This is all part of this classic winery’s dedication to providing a complete winery experience, where you can stay, sample, enjoy fine vino and put up your feet whilst relaxing on the estate’s beautifully charming grounds…
