Gourmet Traveller Best Cellar Door Awards 2019

Gourmet Traveller Best Cellar Door Awards 2019

Gourmet Traveller Wine magazine have released their list of the latest winners in their annual Best Cellar Door Awards.  And who doesn’t love a great winery cellar door!   Cellar doors are exceptional places to visit, not only for the opportunity to sample some incredible wine creations, but more often than not they present exceptional food, stunning views and are places of ambience and atmosphere.
Our cycling tours experience some of the major wine regions of Australia, including the Barossa, Clare Valley & McLaren Vale in South Australia, Mudgee in New South Wales and the Alpine Region & King Valley wine regions in Victoria.   Many of the wineries we visit on our cycling tours are in fact award winners, and we are proud to continue our association with these well deserving businesses.

Listed below are the Cellar Doors that we visit on our tours and the Best Cellar Door awards they have won:
