Established by father and son Ken and Mark Maxwell in 1979, Maxwell Wines is a 100 acre estate vineyard, winery and restaurant in McLaren Vale. Maxwell’s have built a reputation for producing handmade, rich and robust reds that combine exquisite fruit quality with structure and finesse. The range is headed up by a reserve Shiraz named the ‘Minotaur’ followed by the ultra premium Ellen Street Shiraz and the Lime Cave Cabernet Sauvignon. The full range is then made up of blends of Cabernet Merlot, Shiraz Grenache & Cabernet Malbec along with single varietals such as Grenache, Malbec, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Verdelho. The winery is constructed from limestone and old solid timber, the design also allows visitors the opportunity to view a ‘working winery’ while sampling the wines and taking in the magnificent views from the cellar door. Maxwell’s Cellar Door is open daily 10am-5pm.
Adjoined to cellar door is Maxwell Restaurant, an idyllic place for an unforgettable food and wine experience. Complemented by large picture windows with breathtaking views overlooking the rolling hills of McLaren Vale. With guests surrounded by a vista of vines, the setting provides the perfect atmosphere for a relaxed and intimate occasion. Inside, an impressive limestone open fireplace creates a focal point, separating the restaurant from the cellar door.
Our Dining Room is now offering a Chef’s Tasting Menu only, consisting of either 4 courses ($80pp) or 6 courses ($95pp). This has the option also to include matching wines with each course for an additional cost. This menu is based on showcasing the best seasonal produce with the menu changing every few months, and is a degustation style lunch. We generally say to allow 2 hours for the 4 course menu and 3 hours for the 6 course menu. Bookings are essential and the Dining Room is open Thursday-Sunday from 12pm-2.30pm. The maximum booking size is 10 guests.

Our Cellar Door is now offering a more informal menu which is designed to graze and share or enjoy individually. It is a more relaxed and casual style of dining, seated on our outside, covered deck area. All plates are individually priced to order or guests can opt for the ‘feed us’ option which is $65pp and is a selection of chefs favourite dishes for the day. All of these dishes are served sporadically from the kitchen and not in set courses as such. Bookings are recommended as we get a high foot traffic of walk in guests. This offering is available 7 days a week from 12pm-3pm. Any table of 8 guests and above are required to be on the ‘feed us’ menu.
