YOUR NEW ADDRESS - BELLWETHER WINES COONAWARRA
Bellwether is a very special place. Camp surrounded by ancient red gums, some bearing canoe scars from a time when the Boandik people thrived in what was swamp country. Being more of a boutique campsite the limited number of powered sites are spaced out for privacy, with beautiful facilities including; bathrooms featuring a claw foot bath, laundry, camp kitchen, produce garden and a WINERY!
Not just any old winery either - a 5 star Halliday rated winery, rated the star cellar door in Coonawarra by Gourmet Traveller Wine magazine. Tasting bookings book out most weekends so this is a rare opportunity to grab some time from an innovative award winning producer.
You will be spoilt with a local produce tasting platter on arrival with your very own private wine tasting! Once you're done tasting choose your own bottle of Bellwether wine, also included!
2 nights dinners are provided with locally sourced premium BBQ meats to cook in the rustic camp kitchen or on the open fire and a par cooked camp oven roast with fresh garden veges from Bellwether!
Breaky is included for one morning with Bellwether farm fresh eggs, fresh Sour Dough Bread made right at Bellwether and locally sourced Bacon provided for you in a hamper to cook in the Camp Kitchen at your leisure! Don't forget to raid the vege garden while you are there to add some greens to your meals!
