Beresford Wines - Karawatha Cottages McL

Best Accommodation for visiting the Beresford Tasting Pavilion and the Beresford Wine Estate

What better way to enjoy the tasting experience at the Beresford Wine Tasting Pavilion or any of their events, than staying close by and being able to walk there and back. 

With just a short 250 m stroll away, Karawatha Cottages is ideally located for anyone planning a visit to Beresford Wines - whether it is for a tasting of their wines, beers, gin -- or to attend one of their events like the Lavish Lawn Days on the first Sunday throughout summer.

Our three cottages ("Unwind", "Relish" and "Ponder") offer you a luxurious yet affordable accommodation option in McLaren Vale, with each of the cottages being fully self-contained, featuring Sheridan linen/towels, rain water shower-heads and much more. 


Enjoy the sublime views over vineyards towards the Mount Lofty Ranges from your private deck. The perfect place to relax and unwind after day of discovering the wines of McLaren Vale.


" What an amazing introduction to McLaren Vale. Accommodation was perfect & so tranquil. This place has everything you want & more. Attention to detail is spot on. We loved walking between the various wineries. Such an amazing experience. 
Every thought has gone into making one have a memorable stay" , Nikki & Julien, Adelaide

The Beresford Wine Tasting Pavilion

We just love the tasting experience at Beresford Wines. There is the usual long counter in the cellar door, but you don't have to do your tasting there and can choose to have it outdoors on their lovely verandah, overlooking the lawn and up the vineyards to the Beresford House - or anywhere inside the Tasting Pavilion. On the sofas in front of the ultra modern fireplace or in the back at the large communal table.


And best is to not 'just' do the regular tasting, but choose one of their tasting experiences, like the Shiraz & Chocolate Tasting.  Absolutely outstanding and highly recommended.

For those of you who aren't into wines - or just looking for something different, try either one of the beer tasting flights (Vale Brewing or Fox Hat) or getting serious with some gin and other spirits.


You can easily spend an entire afternoon just at Beresford! And what's better than being able to walk back home to your luxury accommodation in McLaren Vale. Choose from one of our three cottages  to complement your visit to Beresford Wines.

"Our home away from home. Nothing is too much trouble for our superb hosts. Lost count how many times we've stayed here - would never consider anywhere else in McLaren Vale!" , Tony & Jen, Melbourne
