Gorgeous views and really nice small winery. Great staff and super friendly service. Beautiful wines. It’s worth a visit if you’re in the region.

Great Experience
May 2021
We visited on a Friday afternoon (dropped in when passing by). We tried 5 of their wines whilst sitting in front of the fire on a cool afternoon. The wines,which are all red, were very good. The tasting itself was free, which is a pleasant change from current practice. The tasting came with some written notes and a commentary. Our favourite was the Graciano but we also enjoyed the Grenache (and the Mosaic). The wines themselves are not cheap ($40+/bottle) but you can also buy by the glass.

Went for a tasting session in this great and relaxed setting. Friendly and knowledgeable staff who share their knowledge and passion without the hard sell. Will be one of your favourites.

Excellent setting

Came here on a recommendation and it did not disappoint. We enjoy the smaller wineries, has a much more natural vibe than the commercial ones. Great tasting reds (that's all they do) and a dog to play with in between tastings.

Fantastic

A couple of people recommended we visit this winery and I'm so glad we did! While the tasting is in a more casual setting, it was still very attentive. The view is stunning overlooking the gorge, very Spanish. The staff were very friendly, including the bulldog that greets you! It really was such a great visit. The wine was very nice and bought some to take home which I can't wait to open.

Great little winery
Feb. 2021
Great experience! The tasting is for free and there’s a nice variety of good quality wines. We loved the view and the two guys that took turns in explaining the wines. Both very nice and friendly and willing to answer all of our questions.

The only down side is that we were very much looking forward to get some food but unfortunately there’s no kitchen. Could have done some better research from our side..

A perfect start to a McLaren Vale visit
Oct. 2020 • Couples
I'd have to say that this winery provided one of the top experiences we had while touring all the wine regions around Adelaide (McClaren, Clare, Barossa, Hills). The long driveway on arrival with Kangaroos bounding beside you was a perfect start. The cellar door is a cute rustic building with a tonne of charm. Seated outside undercover on a beautiful day with views across the mountain and gorge set the perfect scene for a personal tasting. The wines were unexpectedly top quality and the knowledge and genuine demeanour of the guy serving us (sorry forgot your name even though you told 7s twice!) made for a top experience. Relaxed but quality conversation and wines. We will be recommending Samuels Gorge to friends and family. A boutique winery without pretention and with personal service. Thanks for the experience !

Views ok but nothing to write home about.
Jan. 2020
See a couple of posts saying nice views, so was keen to visit. Got there & they were good but nothing special, Paxton's are better IMO. The wall is too high for seating area, which should be raised or moved. The outdoor seating is very limited. The staff were ok & the inside was.....well untouched. We didn't stay for a drink as no seats & view was just above average. Wouldn't rush back or recommend as a 'must-go' over Red Poles or some others.
Owner is also not very professional as bad mouthed other wineries.
I expect him to reply to this.

We have never bad mouthed other wineries, in fact we have done the opposite, talking up Red Poles and Paxton’s in agreement with you. Your only hope is to tear down small businesses. You are a liar and a small, sad little man. Your identical so-called “review” on fb, trip advisor and google show this, as do your own words in the history of your tantrum-posts. You have been speaking with their cellar door manager Mike. Not the owner, and you have put words in my mouth. You will be reported.
