McLaren Vale wine and food destination


Lazy Ballerina Winery & Cellar Door. A family run institution with great wine, an amazing garden for you to enjoy, plus our kitchen is open for you if you want to lunch with us. Open Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday...

We’re not out chasing reviews, we’re not in bottleshops, instead we are here to welcome you as our guests. At all times children and dogs on leads are welcome, we regularly top child or dog friendly activities lists, visit us an see why.


Lazy Ballerina wine is available exclusively from cellar door and selected restaurants. You can drop in anytime we are open for a wine tasting, or simply have wine by the glass or bottle in our garden.

FAQ: We are family friendly and love it when our guests bring their pets (just bring a lead in case we have other fur babies here also). 

Are you vegan friendly? Yes, our feed me lunch is suitable for vegans, just let us know when you book or arrive. Most of our wine is also suitable too, as we don't use fining agents, just check with us if you need more information.  

Are you organic? Our owner James' is a big believer in the concept of growing wine organically. He has worked with many of the major organic farming innovators to promote organic farming. Our dream is to one day have the whole garden, food and wine certified as organic.

James has also been an integral part of developing the Sustainable Australia Winegrowing programme, and is still actively involved as a volunteer. In the meantime, we use organic ingredients in our food wherever possible. We have B.d Paris Creek milk and cheese. Howie Hill Farm meat and Andy Clappis' famous doughs and breads.
