Top Note is currently open from 11am-4pm on weekends only. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we would prefer that you book in advance (call 0406291136) as our capacity is limited by social distancing requirements.
Fantastic cellar door experience. Cate makes you feel like one of the family as soon as you walk through the door.
The tasting experience is cosy and unique … you sit down to taste their flight of wines in comfy chairs in front of the fire, the winemakers join you to explain what you’re tasting.
The Top Note cellar door is located in our cottage at 558 Peters Creek Road in Kuitpo, in the southern Adelaide Hills, opposite the Kuitpo Forest car park. Parking is available in the Forest car park or in the loading bay just south of the cottage. While you're in the area, there are other cellar doors located at Coates Wines, Fox Gordon, K1 and Lazy Ballerina.
The cellar door is open from 11am-4pm on weekends and most public holidays (information about public holiday opening hours can be found on our News page or Facebook page). Our cellar door is closed in June and July every year and will be closed from December 20th 2021 to January 7th 2022 for our Christmas break.
In the interests of safety, the cellar door will be closed when the fire danger in the Mount Lofty Ranges district is rated Extreme or higher. You can find the current fire danger and bans on the South Australian Country Fire Service web site.
