Cellar Door Manager

Krinklewood Estate

From the 49 acres of grapevines ripening under the fiery sun to the thermal pools soon underway near the flowing brook; Krinklewood marches to the natural rhythm of the cosmos.

We breathe a quintessential wine-country essence, with a sprawling oasis of Provencal gardens, fountains, sun-drenched lawns, sculpted sandstone, and even a labyrinth.

A Vineyard with a Vision

Krinklewood has been ACO-certified organic & biodynamic for over 17 years. From the 49 acres of grapevines ripening under the fiery sun to the sustainable architecture by the flowing brook; Krinklewood has long held itself to a ‘living’ mindset and conscious consideration for impact, wellness, and legacy.

While Krinklewood holds profound respect for its heritage, an exciting new chapter of growth is on the horizon. There’s a mineral bathhouse in the works on the estate, a cluster of eco-conscious Dimensions X cabins (a revolutionary prefabricated sustainable home design pioneered alongside architect Peter Stutchbury), a platform for artistic performances, an educational hub dedicated to biodynamic & organic farming and winemaking. This vision extends to hosting artist residencies and workshops, world-class wedding & events and championing organic producers further enriching the tapestry of possibilities.
