Accommodation near the d'Arenberg Cube

Experience the Cube

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 Cube Restaurant or the wine Tasting Room on the 5th floor. 

And the views from the balconies of the tasting room are the best in McLaren Vale.


The restaurant in the Cube is currently closed (as of April 2020) and they are reassessing how to move forward. The Cube tasting room however, as well as the art gallery and museum are open and for that lovely lunch there is the  d'Arry's Verandah Restaurant in the d'Arenberg old homestead. 


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