We're proud to show you our working winery and a museum highlighting over 100 years of winemaking at Church Road. At our cellar door, open daily from 10:30am to 4:30pm in winter and 10:00am to 5:00pm in summer (excluding most public holidays), you can taste and buy all Church Road wines, including the McDonald Series and iconic TOM range. Church Road also caters for private functions by appointment and is a highly sought-after wedding venue.
As if this isn't reason enough to visit us, we often host special events over summer months in our beautiful park-like grounds. Check back regularly for the latest news on what's on at Church Road.
TOM 2009 Release
We know many of you are waiting with bated breath for the release of the 2009 TOM Cabernet Merlot. The release date of this wine has been pushed back slightly and is likely to be mid-2013. Chris Scott, Church Road Winemaker, has advised that this particular vintage is likely to be the longest lived of all the Tom’s we have made to date. It is currently quite a brooding wine and a few more months will help it to open up. We expect this wine will have fantastic cellaring potential. Rest assured, we will be communicating the release date on our website once it is confirmed.
