Warm Weather, Hot Pizzas and some grand final footy finals action!

What’s happening at the Cellar door?

The weather is starting to fire us so we are firing up the traditional wood fired pizza oven.  Come in and try them out and as usual the Gourmet BBQs and platters will be on the go for lunch all weekend. Have you tried one of our local tasting platters?  We source the produce from local businesses including The Waikerie Bakery, Waikerie Meat and Poultry, Riverland Fresh and Illalangi. If you are passing through Waikerie check out the range of delicious local produce and homemade goodies at Illalangi on the Highway. http://illalangi.myshopify.com

The forecasted weather sounds like a great opportunity to get the boat in and cruise to Caudo Vineyard for lunch. While you are here, walk up the hill to the Tangelos trees. There’s a few tangelos left so pick up a box from the staff and take some fresh fruit home.

Don’t be indoors this weekend. Head out and enjoy the gorgeous sunshine that we are in for.

Footy Fever

This weekend is definitely  the weekend of sport in the Riverland with both football and hockey grand finals on Saturday. We want want to wish both Waikerie Football and Waikerie Hockey club teams the best of luck on Saturday as they play for premiership titles.

Weekend Weather forecast

After not so pleasant weather conditions last weekend, we finally have something to look forward to. It will be the first time since April this year to have five consecutive days above 20 degrees. Saturday is looking like a great day for local football and hockey grand finals. Sunny and reaching a top of 28. The rest of weekend and early next week will be fine.

UV levels are beginning to rise so if you are going to be out this weekend consider packing some sunscreen.


We know how much you love the Sangria Sombreos so we have brought in these awesome new Sangria Caps! They are now in stock – what perfect timing heading into warmer weather. For a bit of personality, choose from two different characters- either the wake-boarding skeleton or the skeleton in a speedboat.

Gets yours online or at the Cellar Door on your next visit.

Murray River Warning

Please be careful if you are on the river this weekend. We have a shallow water warning for you on the upper river side of Hogwash Bend. If you are in this area please keep to the outside of the bend.

Fun River Fact

Did you know that Hogwash Bend was a place that farmers took their live stock to drink and bathe. Today, it’s a popular camping spot on a beautiful sandy stretch of the Murray River. We even named our lager after it!

Caudo Vineyard History Fact

Caudo Vineyard use to operate as a dairy that serviced the area from Cadell to Ramco in the late 1940s to early 1970s when it closed due to Modern regulations set in place. Today it still stands with all the original milking workings and is now used as a horse stable.
