We were awarded Australian Wine of the year in 2018 by Winestate; & we have been rated a 4.5 star winery by Halliday for many years.

De Beaurepaire Wines Cellar Door Lawns

Our Lawn Bar

Why not relax and savour your favourite wine on our cellar door lawns? With plenty of space to spread out, our beautiful hideaway has 180 degree views over our 100,000 vines. Our guests tell us they can feel the tension leave their body as they soak up the fresh air, expansive views, beautiful surroundings, and peace & quiet.

Our Lawn Bar offers a wide selection of our wines by the glass & bottle for you to enjoy on our lawns.

New to our wines and are curious to try some at your own pace? Our Lawn Bar also offers a self-guided flight of 4 of our wines for you to enjoy on the lawns. The wines included in the flight are set.  If you’re interested in trying other wines, please either book into one of our guided experiences, or you can purchase most of our wines by the glass.

Our Lawn Bar also offers a selection of premium cheese & chutneys from the deli pantry for you to enjoy with your wine on the lawns.

Dogs. We have 2 very friendly cellar door dogs that freely roam around our cellar door – it is their home! If you must bring your own dog with you, then well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome outside. Your dog must always be on a lead & is not allowed inside. There is a dog waiting zone with water bowls for your four-legged family members to wait while you are inside. We ask that all fur-parents are mindful of other guests and their enjoyment, especially if your dog tends to bark.

No BYO. BYO food & alcohol are not permitted. Both wine & food are available to purchase. We are more than happy to direct you to public picnic grounds in Rylstone.
