Walkabout 2012 Nepenthe Adelaide Hills

One of the bonues for those who like beautiful scenery and the simple pleasure of a picnic, as well as wine, are the opportunities for enjoying said picnics at wineries. One of those that have a great spot is Nepenthe in the Adelaide Hills. While visiting the area with his parents Koala stopped by the Cellar Door for a taste. The drive up to the Cellar door and the adjacent picnic area though the vineyards is beautiful. The picnic area makes for a fantastic spot to enjoy the beauty of the Adelaide Hills.
Aside from a great location, the tasting room / cellar door is bright and inviting. Tasting through the wines of Nepenthe was a delight starting with the 2011 Nepenthe Sauvignon Blanc, a lovely crisp clean and easy to drink wine. Koala diligently worked his way through all the offerings. Look, it’s a tough job but we are committed to it for the benefit of all.

While discussing wines and Koala’s travels, the Cellar Door manager popped her head around the corner with a “I know that voice”. It was a definite case of ‘it’s a small world’. She had met Koala in San Luis Obispo, California a few months earlier while Koala tasted some Sextant Wines where she was pouring.

Koala would ‘Recommend’ you go for a drive into the beautiful Adelaide Hills and swing into Nepenthe and enjoy some of their wonderful wines, buy a bottle or two and partake of picnic with your favorite person. You will be glad you did.

Happy Tasting Adventures,


Kiwi & Koala
