Weekend of Weddings

The Cellar Door closed last Saturday for a particularly special wedding; our very own cellar door manager, Jasmine and her partner Terry. After planning and organising weddings at Caudo Vineyard with countless brides and grooms in the past, Jas found her own wedding a piece of wedding cake. “Caudos is like a second home to me and I could not think of a better place to get married. It was beyond amazing.” A late afternoon ceremony was held at the river bank in the shade of the sentinel river gum trees. Jasmine arrived by boat with her bridal party and later, guests enjoyed drinks at the Cellar door before heading to a marquee for the reception. The marquee was filled with festoon lights and flowers, had a retro style 1970’s caravan bar...

Dia de Los Muertos

The Day Of The Dead is a traditional Mexican holiday celebrated on the 31st October, 1st & 2nd of November. A time where friends and family gather to remember those who have past. On this holiday Sangria is the drink of choice and sugar skulls are used to honour the past. Although this may seem dark in nature, it is very much a celebration of life. We intend to honour the origin of the festival and bring it to you with the addition of the river lifestyle. Combining halloween, wake-boarding, camping, live music and local food- it is going to create one awesome weekend not to be missed. This year we are having some amazing shows on offer. Hopefully, next weekend, you really are going to feel like you will be in...

Classic Adelaide Returns!

Motorsport has been running through our family veins longer than Sangria.  I had been in the womb for 3 months and I got to experience my first Adelaide Grand Prix in November of 1985.  I was told Ayrton Senna and Niki Lauda were sitting on the tables next to us at The Grand Prix ball.  So imagine me today when I got to line my Sangria van up next to 8 Million dollars worth of F1 cars.  The black John Player special car is the car that Ayrton Senna came third in the 1985 Adelaide Grand Prix.  Day made! Even more excited for this weekend. Six years have past and no Classic Adelaide.  My bones jumped out of my skin and onto my car with excitement at the return of Classic adelaide and...

Take the time to appreciate Mother Nature

We truely have an abundance of bird life here at Caudo Vineyard. If you visit on the right day, you might witness what we see all the time- the raw beauty of Mother Nature. Pelicans constantly fly in and glide along the stretch of river near the cellar door. If you happen to have a carp on the end of your fishing line they will become your best friend. The kookaburras laugh in the early hours of the morning, we would like to know what's so funny. We also have a pandemonium of native parrots that enjoy the olive trees. You have to be sneaky to catch a glimpse of them. Twenty bird watchers from Adelaide visited on Wednesday. A beautiful peaceful morning birdwatching quickly turned into an action scene as a...
