The new Cube is a great attraction and highly recommended for anyone visiting McLaren Vales wineries, well worth the $10 entry fee.

While I loved the charm of the old d'Arenburg cellar door, top floor of the cube is certainly a statement and a most glamorous spot for wine appreciation (and tasting). An extensive range of their wine is available for free sampling (although a $10 entry...More

The museum was fascinating and the displays interesting. Make sure to visit the loos! The wine tasting was superb with friendly and helpful staff who really knew their stuff. A ‘different’ and thought-provoking experience!

What a place to visit! Something completely different in the heart of the McLaren Vale wine region. A great experience and topped of with some great wines to try.

I have read some critical TA reviews of this place that just goes to show that some people are impossible to please. What a standout, knockout of a winery! Stunning architecture, creative, inventive and inspiring. Heads up, people - it costs $10 to visit the...More
