What’s not to love about springtime; the evenings become longer, the mornings lighter, the sun begins to warm your bones and the promise of summer lingers in the air. Spring brings with it a transition phase; blooms of vibrant colour bursting into life, while people, pets and wildlife shake off the remnants of winter hibernation and embrace the outdoors once again.
With the change of season, the Cellar Doors around our wine loving state also come to life with offerings of new release wines and sunny nooks to meander in.
Here are some at the top of our list to wander through this Spring:
S.C. Pannell Wines – McLaren Vale

Not usually the place where you would expect to find a Cellar Door, but that is the best thing about this secret little hideaway by the coast. After you’ve strolled the Pt Noarlunga Jetty, it’s the perfect time to stop for an afternoon vino. Make your way to Noddy’s Emporium and find your way through it’s rabbit warren of rooms only to pop out in the shady Lino Ramble courtyard where you will find the friendliest host and a great range of interesting wines.

Certainly one of the best-kept secrets around! This family owned and operated Cellar Door was built with the dream to create their own little slice of heaven – and they have done just that!
