Accommodation near the d'Arenberg Cube

Experience the Cube, d'Arry's Verandah restaurant and the d'Arenberg wines whilst staying at McLaren Vale's best accommodation (as rated by Tripadvisor)

Standing tall at the end of Osborne Rd, overlooking McLaren Vale, you will find the d'Arenberg Cube. Some locals may still call it an eyesore, not fitting for the region, others describe it as McLaren Vale's Mona  - we wouldn't agree with either. The Mona in Hobart is primarily a museum, with an attached winery; the Cube is an eccentric and colourful expression of Jester Osborne's vision but still is a cellar door and restaurant, with an attached museum and art exhibition.

Just, it is not your standard cellar door or restaurant and definitely breaking norms.


See below what the Cube is all about or check out our cottages for luxurious, yet affordable accommodation close to the d'Arenberg Cube.

Dining & Wine Tasting at the d'Arenberg Cube

It's beautiful to look at from the outside - but the true colours come to live once you enter.

A Wine Sensory Room, a Virtual Fermenter and 360 degree video room are all on your way as you venture to the wine Tasting Room on the 5th floor. Find your favourite d'Arenberg wine, whether it is the flagship Dead Arm Shiraz or a still great drop from the Stump Jump entry range, whilst seated in some of the rather colourful chairs. But don't forget - the views from the balconies of the tasting room are among the best in McLaren Vale.


The famous fine dining restaurant inside the cube has been replaced by Eat @ Polly's, offering casual food, coffees and wine by the glass; if you are looking for a fine dining experience, head over to d'Arry's Verandah Restaurant in the d'Arenberg old homestead. 

For the art lovers, make sure to pay a visit to the gallery, with the now permanent Dali at d'Arenberg exhibition! 

And there is no better way to enjoy d'Arenberg and the Cube  than staying in accommodation nearby, like one of our three cottages.
