Fodor's Expert Review Pfeiffer Wines
Since its first vines were planted in 1895, this winery has made exceptional fortified wines and varietal wines, including Chardonnay. It also has one of the few Australian plantings of Gamay, the classic French grape used to make Beaujolais. At this small rustic winery you can pre-order (with at least 24 hours' notice) picnic baskets for each season stuffed with gourmet products, cake, and a bottle of table wine for A$90 for two, including plates and cutlery. Vegetarian baskets for two are A$90, and children's are A$12.50 per child. Cheese platters (A$30) are available any time. Winemaker Jen Pfeiffer makes an aperitif called Pfeiffer Seriously Pink, along with a Chardonnay Marsanne, Shiraz, Merlot, and fortifieds such as Muscat, Muscadelle, and Topaque.
