    Never ever overlook Kies
    As the gateway to the Barossa most tours stop at Kies first. People incorrectly assume the wine and wine tasting will get better at other wineries and buy later in the day. These people will go home disappointed. Kies winery is a family run business who appreciate their customers which will entice you to keep coming back. Their wine is fantastic. If you like your reds then you will love the monkey nut merlot and the suit cab sav. Their white is always good especially the heyson gold. However a great talking point is the white port. It’s a gem of a drink that is tasty at room temperature or frozen. Pro tip: you can buy small bottles but for a similar price you can buy a flagon that is 2-3 times the size. Once you’ve tasted the wine add your name to their newsletter to get some really good deals While there check out the gift shop and the huge range of teas and teapots. The kitchen is also good and offer large meals for a reasonable price. There’s always a crowd eating here but you never have to wait long for your meal. .

    Barrel Room winery tour : Educational. Sustainable. Delicious.
    The barrel room tour with Bronson was hands down the best winery experience of my and my husbands life! The knowledge and environmental awareness that the Kies family bring to their wine making is phenomenal and this evident in the final product! The tour was educational, relatable and seriously interesting - for anyone who has an interest in how wine comes to be, I 150% recommend this experience. We also stayed on for lunch at the cafe on site and took several bottles home to enjoy. All in all 12/10 day! Thank you Bronson!
    This is such amazing feedback - you have made my day! Thanks so much Kaila! We really appreciate your review and were so so glad you had a great time with us!

    Great winery
    Sam shared her knowledge of the wines. We found the wines to be very drinkable and made purchases on our way out. Love the fact you can’t buy this wine in local bottle shops. I would recommend Kies Family Wines. I would recommend you charge to taste and deduct the charge if wines are purchased.

What a fantastic winery, loved the family history and stories from our great host, Sheila.
Best winery we went to on our day tour ... the only sad thing was, we went there first - so most stops after that, weren't as good!

Kies Family Wines have some of the best wines in the Barossa and we really enjoyed visiting their cellar door, we were made very welcome and tasted a variety of different wines. As we are from WA we took advantage of their amazing delivery option and ordered ourselves some delicious wines to share with our friends and family when we got home.
Would encourage anyone to make this winery a must on their tour of the Barossa.

Kies set a high standard straight away and was our first winery we visited. There White Shiraz was beautiful and also the Irish White Muscat, husband said it was the best he has ever tasted. We loved all there wines and walked away with six bottles. The lovely young lady was friendly, funny and very informative on there wines from the growing process to flavours. We visited numerous wineries and Kies was a standout 10/10 the best winery we visited in our Barossa and Clare valley stay.

We went on a tour of Barossa/Hahndorf

Unfortunately we were very unimpressed with our visit to Kies Winery. We were expecting Wine Tasing in the Barrel Room followed by lunch in the restaurant. On arrival we were left standing around before being herded into the restaurant where they said they ‘should have’ a table for the group and tasting would take place there. I asked a Kies staff member why we were not tasting in the cellar and was told another group had arrived early. I would assume all groups have secured a booking and perhaps the other group should have had to wait their turn or they could have been sent to the restaurant. Also having placed our lunch orders shortly after being seated we waiter almost an hour and a half for food. Very unimpressed.

Coming from WA we are lucky enough to have the Swan Valley and amazing wineries of the South West close by and the standard there is miles ahead of our Barossa experience.
