There’s no better feeling than walking into a place that you’ve never been to before, and thinking to yourself “aaaahhh, it’s even better than I could have imagined”!
That’s how I felt walking into the new Kimbolton Wines cellar door. As soon as you step inside, you develop tunnel-vision and all you can see is the stunning vineyards stretching out in front of you. The crew at Kimbolton clearly know how good they’ve got it, since the cellar door is designed to make the most of its unique surroundings.
The structure itself is made out of huge storage containers, all joined together to form a cosy space complete with a bar, small kitchen area, and inside dining space. Most of the walls have been knocked out and replaced with floor to ceiling windows, and a bar bench has been fitted out along the front.
Outside the storage-container-turned-cellar-door is a wrap around deck that sits under the gum trees looking out over the vines (have we mentioned that view yet?)! If you follow the deck around to the side, you’ll stumble upon a grassy area that just screams “picnic”, and a set of stairs leading up…
… to the most epic viewing platform/deck space that we’ve ever seen! Soak up the sunshine with a birds eye view of the property, and sit back and relax with a glass of Kimbolton vino in hand.
So, we’ve successfully raved about the stunning views for a few paragraphs now — let’s chat about some of the other fabulous things that Langhorne Creek’s newest cellar door is known for… like the WINE!
While the cellar door is brand-spanking-new, the family behind Kimbolton have been producing wine for decades, and let us tell you — they’re bloody good at it! We sampled their recommended Sparkling Montepulciano, and then we moved right along to the wine and cheese flights… because why the hell not?!
One half of the brother/sister owner combo is Nicole, who has selflessly spent hours upon hours doing all the hard work for us (lols), perfectly matching the right cheeses to their wine range. Nicole wisely taught us that the wrong cheese can make the wine taste bad, and the wrong wine can make the cheese taste bad. Who knew that cheese and wine had soulmates too?
As well as the wine and cheese flights, there are also platters for days. We’re talking dip platters, cheese platters, dukkah platters, and a combo of all three if that’s what your belly desires. You might also be surprised with some sweet treats, like these delish plum muffins that, when paired with a warm cup of coffee, make our souls sing. There’s a new idea for you, Kimbolton — cupcake and coffee flights!
Rich in family history and bursting at the seams with forever-changing views, this NEW hidden gem in Langhorne Creek is ready to be discovered.
Thanks for having us, Kimbolton Wines!
