Possibly the best vineyard stay on the Planet
Ok, maybe that's possibly a bit of an over statement, but it could be 'your' best, as this place is magic!
Nothing compares to a vineyard sunset over one of the most beautiful wine regions in the world or - To a leisurely stroll through premium shiraz vineyards or -
To the best seat (or bath tub) in the house with a view that will take your breathe away!
These words by Cambourne Estate certainly ring true. Time to plan a trip! Where is this place you ask?
Cambourne’s 25 acre vineyard estate is located on the picturesque palm tree lined Seppeltsfield Rd in the world famous Barossa Valley in South Australia. The Barossa is one of the world's great wine regions, renowned for its food and wine, cultural experiences and easy-going lifestyle.
It also just happens to be positioned directly across from the heritage listed gravity feed winery of Seppeltsfield, and has direct walking access to the acclaimed Hentley Farm restaurant and cellar door. A taste experience that is not to be missed for both the amazing wines and incredible food in an beautiful location.
We had the pleasure recently to get a tour of the Cambourne Estate with Andrew and were very impressed with the beautiful setting and setup of this amazing accommodation.
With all the latest mod cons and also the best connection to a buildings history we have ever seen, this is a premium spot. The Cambourne Boutique Accommodation has the capacity to sleep 6 people (three queen bedrooms) and boasts unsurpassed views of their prime Barossa vineyard. It is fully self-contained with a full galley style kitchen and a laundry (including washer/dryer); spacious living room with a combustion fireplace and spectacular vineyard views. The indoor and outdoor alfresco areas allow all weather dining and drinking options. The perfect end to a day of tasting in the Barossa Valley.
Andrew is a renowned and award–winning chief winemaker for the award winning Hentley Farm, and has been blessed to have found professional success and acclaim in his creative passion. His achievements include 2017 Barons of the Barossa Wine Maker of the Year; 2015 James Halliday Winery of the Year; Wine Society Young Winemaker of the Year nominee in 2013 and 2011.
He has also recently begun his own wine label, Quin Wines, and on introduction has won four trophies at the Barrossa Valley Wine Show 2018. Most Succsessful Exhibitor, Small Producer - Best Shiraz Classes 9, 10 & 11, - 2016 Barossa Valley Shiraz, Best 2016 Shiraz and - Best 2017 Shiraz.
Andrew and his wife Skye Quin settled in the Barossa Valley in 2008 after years of travelling and working abroad in Europe and the USA. Andrew was captivated by the Barossan big, rich, bold red wine styles and complex, textural white wines that the area showcases. Skye was charmed by the country lifestyle and the artisan food culture. Andrew and Skye Quin purchased Cambourne in 2014 to fulfil their dream of owning a quality Western Barossa Shiraz vineyard.
They both fell in love with its prime location, the quality grapes, and the quirkiness and history of the cottage. They saw huge potential to develop a contemporary, high-end accommodation option for the Seppeltsfield Region. It also has its own cellar stocked with some special wines for those who wish to take advantage of the honor setup and enjoy a tasty drop.
For dining options just stroll along the beautiful Greenock creek towards the award winning Hentley Farm restaurant or down Seppeltsfield Road to Fino at Seppelstfield, both less than 5 minutes walk.
Alternatively a 5 minute drive takes you to the restaurant Appellation at ‘The Louise’ or Fermentasian in the Tanunda township.
Cambourne is clearly the perfect location for anyone looking to indulge in Barossa’s best restaurants!
Just like Andrews wines, Cambourne Estate is an award winning estate that will enchant all who visit.
Happy Travel Adventures,
