    Warm visit on a chilly day!
    We visited the winery on a rainy cold day. It was our first winery on the tour and it was such a lovely warm start! Lovely staff, atmosphere and the wines were great! Loved the history too. Highly recommended!
    Thanks for visiting and leaving your kind review Paula :)

    Amazing Small Winery with wonderful grounds and delicious wines
    Amazing Experience! Welcomed from the moment we walked in. Delicious number of wines to taste and our host was very accomodating to the different taste pallets of our group. Beautiful grounds with a cafe and grass space with lawn games. Would return!
    Oh thank you so much for your kind words Katie. Loving that you enjoyed your experience with us here at Kies :)

    Fantastic experience
    Everyone in my group loved our recent visit to Kies cellar door. All the wines we tried were absolutely beautiful and they have a great range of wine prices, from entry level to more high end options. Our lovely guide made sure everyone got to try plenty of wines, even though some only liked white wine. I loved being able to support a family run business and will definitely be back for a visit in the future. I couldn't rate them more highly.
    Danica thank you so much for these kind words. We are so lucky to have awesome people like you visiting us and leaving reviews. Thanks :)

    An essential cellar door to visit when in the Barossa
    A fantastic cellar door located in the heart of the Barossa. So many glorious varieties, provided my a knowledgeable and enthusiastic team who genuinely want you to have the best experience. The Tawny wines are something special and an absolute essential tasting and purchase!! Also worth mentioning that you can purchase 2-5L bulk wines at fantastic prices and get discounts for bringing the bottles back for refills, which was popular amongst the locals. I’d highly recommend visiting and I will certainly visit again when I’m back in the Barossa.
    Wow, what a n awesome review Clare thanks so much. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review, we really appreciate it :D

    Great value, with warm and welcoming service.
    This was a great stop on our Barossa Valley wine tour. The effervescent Lily at the cellar door was so welcoming and friendly, and had great wine knowledge. On her recommendation we sent a few bottles of wine home for us to enjoy later (the winery offers a very low postage rate). We then had lunch in the restaurant. Our waitress Kathy was delightful. Food was very well priced and served promptly.
    Penny thank you so much for this fantastic review. Lily is awesome isn't she :D And a great idea to take up the low postage and send some wine home to enjoy. Thanks for your kind words about our cafe too, Kathy is a gem!

    Lovely experience
    Attended the High Tea on Saturday at Kies and it was a lovely way to spend the afternoon. Great food, great wine, great atmosphere, and some time spent after, tasting their wines in the winery. Highly recommend it.
    Sounds like the perfect day finishing a High Tea with some wine tasting Sharon :) Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review.

    A CUT ABOVE THE REST
    Kies set a high standard straight away and was our first winery we visited. There White Shiraz was beautiful and also the Irish White Muscat, husband said it was the best he has ever tasted. We loved all there wines and walked away with six bottles. The lovely young lady was friendly, funny and very informative on there wines from the growing process to flavours. We visited numerous wineries and Kies was a standout 10/10 the best winery we visited in our Barossa and Clare valley stay.
    Oh so this is awesome Simone!! Thanks so much for your kind words, I'm so happy you enjoyed your visit with us and rated us as the best winery of your visit, woohoo! We really appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. I must say I'm a bit partial to the White Shiraz at the moment too, yum :)

We stopped at Kies Family Winery as part of our Barossa Valley Wine tour. We were treated to a lovely meal here before having our wine tasting. The staff were welcoming, knowledgeable and friendly. The wines were outstanding and choosing was difficult but we ended up taking a bottle of shiraz home with us.

Enjoyed a great tasting of some of Kies Family wines but particularly their Shiraz styles. Subtle earthy tones overlaid with berry & chocolate with a peppery after taste. Very different to many Shiraz styles that opt for a heavy, leathery style. Also enjoyed a super rose that opts for a euro style rather than the typical pink sweet concoctions that many producers aim for. Always great to see wine makers standing out from the crowd without going too far. Kies bring a refreshing originalness to their offerings which should be both applauded & enjoyed. Also took advantage of their tawny offerings with the staff bottling on the spot for us. A really unique experience without the hype & commercial approach to many in the valley

We have been coming here for years. Absolutely love this place.
Friendly staff, beautiful view, fantastic wines.
The Deer Stalker Merlot is my favourite and the white muscat is a staple to hand on hand at all times.

Thank you for your service Kies!

Did the wine blending session with Kies and what a wonderful experience it was. Behind the scenes look at the winery and the ability to blend my own wine (and take home a bottle) with the head wine maker. Great value for money and would strongly recommend doing the session.

The wine tasting experience was an absolute pleasure, the passion and dedication Kies has for their wines is inspiring. It is a Cellar door well worth visiting, you will definitely walk out a few bottles of their fine wines.

This was hands down the most fun and best winery experience we have had. We loved it from start to finish. A walk and history of the family and winery, a tour and chat about how the wine is made and then of course to blend our own wine that we got to take home. Will definitely be recommending and doing again!
