Tucked away in an amphitheatre setting amongst the vines, Obsidian offers tastings in a relaxed and friendly environment. The cellar door is situated next to a wetland area and vines. Al fresco tastings are often held under the pergola.
Our passionate and knowledgable cellar door staff will take you through the range of Obsidian and Weeping Sands wines. Often on weekends and over the Christmas holiday period one of the proprietors of the vineyard, Lindsay and Janet Spilman or Alan Wiltshire will be on hand to share their insights and passion about Obsidian wines.
