Somerled Cellar Bar

Rob was employed by Max Schubert, father of Grange, at Penfolds back in 1969.

Now Rob’s running the most elegant, surprising and creative wine secret in the Adelaide Hills with his own family, Heather, Lucy and Emma. It’s not quite like anything else.

Part cellar door and part wine bar, Somerled opens til 7:30pm every night.

Front and centre of their website sits their weekly blog. Have a look now!

Rob’s elegant and clean sparklings and whites contrast superbly with his mature and complex aged reds.

According to The Advertiser, Somerled shirazes are ‘as close to Grange as you’ll ever get’.

Lucy has recently re-introduced Wine Tasting Flights at their long marble bar, or try wines by the half glass or glass.

Nibbles are abundant: try the warm cheese puffs, French toasties, warm anchovy sticks and their signature Spanish platters!

Upcoming intimate tasting event tickets, hosted by Rob himself are listed on their site. They’re possibly the most amazing way to be introduced to this beautiful brand.

Wait - we haven’t even told you what the name Somerled refers to! You might have to go up, have a drink with the family at the bar and find out!
