Kekerengu experience made just for you...

Sleepers Vineyard special wine tasting experience

This vineyard tour is made just for YOU. We start in our hand-restored historic cob buildings on our vineyard nestled in the hidden Kekerengu valley at the foot of Ben More. Bursting with old-fashioned wow factor, our experience celebrates the Kekerengu sub-region and the unique wines it produces. Lynne, the owner, personally runs guided tasting of wines made from grapes grown on Sleepers Vineyard, giving guests a deeper understanding of how the land and the seasons directly impact the quality and complexity of a wine. Persistence, Patience and Passion.
