Are you a glass swirler and tannin expert? Or more of a ‘detecting hints of a tasty tipple’ kinda gal? Kersbrook Hill welcomes you all.

Nestled snugly in the Adelaide Hills township of Kersbrook, this family owned and operated vineyard, winery and cellar door is the bomb. Paul Clark and his family proudly specialise in premium cool climate wines and cider, and whether you know the wine-speak or just enjoy a delicious drop, they’ll host you for a delightfully laid-back visit.

Let’s talk vino

The beauty of being a small, independently-run winery means Paul can play! “We love experimenting with new and different styles to create small batch wines that delight the senses — most are only available from our cellar door or through our wine club membership.”

And the fruits of their experimentation have really paid off with some exciting new releases just in time for warmer weather. “Our newest white is low in alcohol, so it’s perfect to drink at a company lunch or get-together when you want to still be able to drive. We’ve named it Fika — a Swedish saying which means to take a moment to slow down and enjoy the good things in life,” Paul says.

“Another fun addition to our line-up is the Pet Nat, which is a low-intervention pink wine. It has a natural carbonation; is a very organic conscientious wine and tastes like Fruit Tingles.” Now, that tickles our fancy!

Let’s talk vibes

Between the setting, the wines, tasty pizzas and down-to-earth hospitality, Kersbrook Hill is a winner any time of the year. A cellar door tasting with Paul and the team is all about genuine hospitality — at no cost he’ll chat in layman’s terms or mix it up if you’re into wine lingo.

Or you can delve deeper with a Family Series tasting, which includes a behind- the-scenes tour of the winery — they even have a new series rosé named after grand- daughter Ellie Mae… cuuute! “You can try barrel tastings — which are very different, really raw and fresh as opposed to settled once they’re sealed in the bottles,” Paul says.

Over spring and summer, they open up a cocktail bar in the cellar door to serve up frozen rosés (look out!) and signature wine cocktails. Also, keep an eye and ear out for their acoustic nights for something even more spesh.

Can’t de-cider on a wine?

Try a Kersbrook Hill Premium Basket Pressed Apple Cider! The perfect refreshment for those long summer days by the pool, it’s handmade using crisp Granny Smith apples from the Adelaide Hills area. And a big bonus — it’s a natural apple cider made with very little carbonation, so it won’t leave you feeling heavy or bloated. Bang!
