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 knowledgeable cellar door staff will take you through the range of Obsidian reserve and non reserve wines.

Rated by Metro Magazine as:

"One of the happiest wineries to visit, even though the facilities couldn't be more simple. The wines are gorgeous, and the knowledgeable chap pouring your wine may well be one of the owners."
