McLaren Vale Cellar Door

In what has been described as “the most authentic and enjoyable wine experience in the Vale”, Ekhidna’s McLaren Vale cellar door features handcrafted wines, beers, and cider from winemaker Matt Rechner. Be prepared for some pleasant surprises!

Irrepressible and ever-laughing winemaker and owner Matt Rechner is almost always on-hand answering questions, offering advice, and fussing over his visitors. His many achievements includes a trophy for Australia’s Best Shiraz.

The Ekhidna McLaren Vale cellar door not only offers tastings of Matt’s excellent handcrafted wines but adds tastings of sensational handmade beers including his highly sought-after Ginger Beer.
