Description

Silver Spoon Estate has a diverse range of varietal wines, including Tempranillo, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Viognier and a distinct collection of medium to heavy bodied Shiraz to suit all wine lovers - including our famous MONSTER SHIRAZ. We also produce a range of red blends including GSM, GST or our current release Fandango dry red, and a very special late harvest wine too. There is always a wine for every palate, every budget, every occasion.

Due to an increase in Government regulations and protocols now mandated on hospitality businesses and employing new staff, we have had to commence a tasting fee of $10* per person. This will encompass a selection of 5 wines carefully selected by our Winemaker, including some of our award-winning wines from our dry-grown Estate vineyards. *The tasting fee is redeemable on a one bottle per person purchase on the day.

Further Wine Flight Discoveries, together with light meals, grazing platters, cheese boards, with wines by the glass, local beers, soft drinks and tea/coffee are available for the non-wine drinkers or drivers on the day too.
