In 2017, Brad and Nicole embarked on a journey to create something extraordinary in the heart of the Langhorne Creek Wine Region. Their vision materialized in December 2018 with the unveiling of the Kimbolton Cellar Door, a true architectural marvel that reflects their unwavering commitment to wine, sustainability, and family-friendly experiences.
A Sustainable Oasis
Kimbolton's Cellar Door is not just a place to enjoy fine wines; it's a testament to sustainability and innovative design. Crafted from repurposed shipping containers that blend seamlessly with the surrounding nature, this eco-friendly structure is nestled among the gum trees. The use of recycled timber throughout the construction significantly reduces the winery's environmental footprint. One of the standout features is the rooftop viewing deck, one of only two in South Australia. From this vantage point, visitors can take in the breathtaking views of the 59-year-old vines responsible for Kimbolton's exceptional wines, making it the perfect spot to savor wine while absorbing the region's beauty.
A Place for All
Brad and Nicole understand the importance of creating a family-friendly environment. They introduced signature wine and cheese flights, along with kids' tasting flights, providing an inclusive space where families can come together and bond over their shared love of wine.
Innovating in Challenging Times
The past five years haven't been without their challenges, including a 10-week closure only ten months after opening, due to the global pandemic. Kimbolton displayed remarkable resilience and adaptability, offering bookable online experiences, seated wine tastings, and introducing Beats & Eats events – a delightful fusion of wine, food trucks, and live music in a controlled environment.
Committed to Conservation
Kimbolton is not just about crafting exceptional wines; it's also about giving back to nature. Their partnership with Monarto Safari Park supports cheetah conservation, with a portion of Cabernet Sauvignon sales contributing to this noble cause. Furthermore, Kimbolton and five other Langhorne wineries sponsor various African animals through "Grapes for Good," donating proceeds from limited-edition wines to protect threatened species.
