Neither wine cellar nor tavern, the "caveau" is a unique olace open to the public and operated by winegrowers themselves.
You are invited to taste and compare their wines and to take some home.

Woodstock  Winery  &  Coterie

In 1973 Doug & Mary Collett acquired a 10ha derelict vineyard and old cottage named "Woodstock".
The Townsend family had settled there in 1859, from Woodstock in Oxfordshire, England, ... the origin of the "Woodstock" name. Industry identity, Doug Collett quickly built a modest winery and crushed Woodstock's first vintage in 1974. Doug specialised in premium full-bodied McLaren Vale reds, which he sold in bulk to other companies.
Scott Collett took over the management of the business in 1982 after gaining other winemaking experience and a Roseworthy Winemaking Degree. Woodstock began releasing wines under its own label in 1983 and quickly built a reputation for high quality full flavoured McLaren Vale wines.
In 1988 Scott and Anne Collett built "The Coterie" as a hospitality venue to showcase Woodstock Wines with fine foods in a pleasant atmosphere.

At the heart of the Clare Valley wine region, this attractive town 135km north of Adelaide. Outside the city, in the typical countryside of this wine region you will find small restaurants at many of the vineyards in charming and romantic settings, often with an excellent menu and, of course, regional wines.

Some Woodstock vineyards were replanted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Existing old Shiraz and Grenache vines were added to with the purchase of a neighbouring 16ha of vines, including some very old Shiraz and Grenache. More recent plantings include Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon and more Cabernet Sauvignon.
