K1 Cellar Door
Adelaide Hills, South Australia
A visit to K1 begins the moment you turn in to the drive, as you follow the steep avenue of trees that perfectly frames ‘The Lakehouse’, home to the stunning K1 Cellar Door.
You would be forgiven for thinking you had arrived in the Swiss Alps or the Canadian Rockies, as you sweep left around the man-made lake that gives the Cellar Door its name. And if you should be lucky enough to visit during the Autumn months, you will marvel at the many hues of the trees that encircle the entire Adelaide Hills vineyard.
Needless to say Geoff Hardy is a man who knows how to make an entrance. His passion for the Adelaide Hills and the Kuitpo region began in the early 1980s, founding K1 in 1986. Ever since, he has poured every minute into making the K1 vineyard what you see today, much of it with his own bare hands.
And when you pour this much love into a place like this, you can only imagine the level of work that goes in to the premium Adelaide Hills Wines that are produced from such a pristine cool-climate vineyard.
And the K1 Cellar Door is the ideal place to discover these amazing wines for yourself, while you drink in the tranquillity and mesmerising Adelaide Hills landscape from the deck, or ensconced in the ‘The Lakehouse’ itself, alongside platters of delicious local produce.
So don’t wait, plan your visit to K1 Vineyard today and experience this spectacular Adelaide Hills winery for yourself!
