Wine Tastings, Cheese & Wine, Picnics, Group Visits
At Dionysus Winery we are all about bringing you a wine experience that meets your needs with a range of unique curated tasting experiences that go beyond tasting wines.
Our cellar door features internal and external seating options as well as a beautiful sculpture garden for enjoying self-paced cheese and wine tasting experiences and picnics.
Select from one of our wine experiences below, suitable for groups of up to nine people as well as three options for groups of ten or more people.
For those looking for something unique and extra special, please contact us directly so we can help create a personalised experience just for you.
Enjoy a wine tasting experience sitting in the cellar door, in the winery or under the pergola overlooking our beautiful views. Choose five wines from our current wines (with the exception of our CB Young, Reserve Shiraz that is $2 for a taste).
Our team will take you on a journey through the wines and will be able to answer all your questions. We will be guided by you - some people love to explore everything about each wine and some people prefer to explore the wines on their own.
The tasting is $5 per person and it is refundable for each person who purchases a bottle of wine. Any additional wines that you would like to taste are an additional $1 each.
Relax in the sculpture garden and let your senses run wild! Have some 'me' time to listen the songs and chirping from native birds, feast your eyes on the stunning views overlooking the garden to the gorgeous country side, focus on the texture and aromas from cheese and wine; and enjoy the taste explosions of competing flavours from the wine and cheese.
Set your own pace to explore the complementary flavours of five cheeses served with matching wines that are provided in 20ml test tubes for you to pour into your glass.
The cost is $12 per person and $5 is refundable on purchases a bottle of wine.
A perfect opportunity to treat yourself. Your experience will start with a guided tasting of five wines by a member of the cellar door team. After you have tasted the wines you'll have to make a hard decision - 'what wine would I like a glass of with my cheese plate'. The cheese plate has three gourmet cheeses, home made quince paste, dried fruits, nuts and crackers. Then it's just sit back, sip on your wine and graze from the cheese plate.
The cost is $30 per person and $5 is refundable on purchases a bottle of wine. Bookings are essential for this experience.
With tables scattered throughout it, our beautiful sculpture garden it is a perfect place for a picnic with wine. The garden is a tranquil setting and has plenty of space between tables. The garden is home to sculptures from local and not so local artists. Some of the sculptures are tactile and invite you to touch them to see their movement. Don't be scared of the larger than life Ned Kelly or Old Man Emu!
Collect your picnic basket from the cellar door and take it to the beautiful sculpture garden to enjoy. Your basket will have a selection of antipasto, cold meats, cheese, dip, crackers and a sweet treat. For every two people who book you will receive a bottle of wine (your choice from five options) to enjoy with your picnic.
The cost is $45 per person. Bookings are essential for this experience.

There's a big claim that Riedel wine glasses make a big difference to the favour experience of the wine based on the size and shape. When Wendy first hear this claim she thought it was a lot of piffle and then she did the Riedel Varietal Wine Glass workshop and was blown away by the impact the glass has on the wine tasting experience. If you don't believe it then this is your chance to try it for yourself. It's incredible!
Different wine varieties have different characters and flavour profiles. The size and shape of whatever vessel you use – whether that's a RIEDEL glass or plastic cup – will alter the way you senses perceive the wine.
During the workshop you will taste four wines from multiple glasses including one designed specifically for that variety. We will be experiencing Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz in the workshop. You will get to keep the four glasses (RRP $220).
Matching cheeses will be served and other food is available for purchase. Cost to members and one guest is $125, additional guests $140 per person. BOOK ONLINE HERE
If you are looking for a unique experience for a group of 15 to 40 people to join in with some team activities as well as having time to socialise, then the perfect solution may be a games afternoon at Dionysus Winery. Available on weekday afternoons, you will get exclusive use of the sculpture garden, a food and beverage package and the use of multiple outdoor games. Create a competitive atmosphere if you like, or just have the games available - the choice is yours.
